Every year, more than 400,000 visitors flock to Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire, which has hosted the International Garden Festival since 1992. This event paints a panoramic picture of landscape design from around the world every year. Over 25 seasons, more than 700 gardens have been designed in the Festival grounds. Whether the focus is on “water”, “colour”, “memory”, “deadly sins” or “therapeutic gardens”, every year the gardens at Chaumont-sur-Loire invent new ways of seeing, experiencing and designing gardens with humour and audacity.
We visited in 2014.
