A Very Secret Garden

Jardin d’Agapanthe is wonderfully unique. This garden, hidden deep in the Normandy countryside, is a bucket-list destination for gardeners. From Italian to Oriental to French, it is hard to define exactly what its style is. But this makes it all the more marvelous.

Le Moulin Brégeon

American painter Jonathan Robinson did what every Francophile dreams of doing. Finding an abandoned water mill and renovating it in a classical French style. Wanting to share this piece of bucolic paradise to others, he opened Le Moulin Brégeon – a retreat in the Loire Valley, made for lovers of French country.
