Gardens fit for a fairytale. Perched on the hillside in the town of Menerbe (considered one of the most beautiful villages in France) is La Carmajane an 11th century castle. The gardens at La Carmajane are breathtaking, with landscaped ”garden rooms” connected by stone steps and pathways designed to allow visitors to meander and discover the hillside levels as they unfold into the beauty of the surrounding hilltop. The fabulous photography is by @clivenichols, who is one of Britain’s best. And we are sharing more of Clive’s images on the blog ( 👆🏻link in profile👆🏻) and more about this beautiful place in the clouds of Provence.
