Monet's garde

A luxury tour which takes in Paris and some of the most beautiful gardens of France tour: Versailles, Giverny and The Loire Valley at their peak. The gardens range from Renaissance to contemporary and include flower gardens, woodland gardens, landscaped parks and, of course, a French specialty, formal gardens.

The gardens of France are works of art that have offered endless inspiration for painters, poets, and playwrights and captivated visitors for centuries.

Paris gardens tour

You’ll be based in a 4 star hotel in superb locations and start your tour with a spectacular dinner cruise on the River Seine with your tour director and fellow guests. Seeing Paris lit up at night, the reflections sparkling on the River Seine is a memorable sight.

Versailles is just a few miles from the centre of Paris and you should wear comfy shoes for this visit because the monumental Chateau and grounds have to be seen to be believed. You’ll be guided by a historian and discover the park, gardens, the Petit and Grand Trianon and Marie-Antoinette’s hamlet, plus of course the chateau, and in the evening experience a night of music and lights in the garden.

You’ll also get some free time to discover Paris and its markets, shops and cultural venues.

Monet garden tour

Also not far from Paris, just over the border in Normandy, is one of the most famous gardens in the world – Monet’s garden at Giverny. An absolutely incredible feat of planting awaits you as the blooming flower beds resemble paint palettes and the exquisite lily pond is like a real life Monet painting.

You’ll also get to visit the little town of Giverny, authentic and pretty as a picture.

Loire gardens tour

You’ll be based in the lovely, historic town of Amboise for your Loire valley gardens tour. The town is dominated by the royal chateau which you’ll visit with its stunning gardens overlooking the Loire river. You’ll also discover the Chateau du Clos Lucé, the last residence of Leonardo da Vinci with its romantic, bucolic gardens filled with artworks and fascinating designs by the great Renaissance man.

Villandry, a masterpiece of formal gardens, the stunning Chateau of Azay le Rideau and the Chateau of Chaumont where the most important garden festival in France takes place from April to October are all on your schedule.

And, it doesn’t end there. You’ll also visit the ancient Chateau de Chinon, the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud and the extraordinary Chateau le Rivau with its fairy tale gardens, complete with a Rapunzel like tower.

Finally the Chateau de Chenonceau and Chateau de Chambord are on your itinerary.

You’ll be transported everywhere in comfort so that you get to see the most beautiful gardens of France without rushing on this gorgeous gardens of tour of France.
