Meeting the Gardener at la Chatonnière

One of the highlights of Sue Pearlstine's week with us was meeting Ahmed Azéroual, the award winning Head Gardener at la Chatonnière. Sue is a professional landscape gardener from California. She asked us to design a 5 day tour which covered as many of the important Loire Valley gardens as possible.

We chose la Chatonnière because it is a beautiful garden, close to the more famous Villandry, so we could visit them on the same day. As part of the visit we arranged for Sue to spend some time with Ahmed, who prior to coming to la Chatonnière, was Head Gardener at Villandry. They were firm friends immediately, and their mutual love of plants and gardening shone through.

If you would like us to arrange something special just for you, email us and ask.
