It is in the heart of the Loire Valley, in charming Touraine, that the Jardins de la Chatonnière flourish. Twelve in number, each one is thought of as an initiation whose name gives the key: Elegance, Silence, Abundance, Senses, Intelligence, Dance, Sciences, Romances, France, Fragrances , Luxuriances and Pleasures. Here, each season brings its share of blooms. In March-April, daffodils and primroses flourish under the feet of visitors. In April-May, tulips and wisteria display their gaiety. In May-June, it is peonies, roses and clematis that intoxicate passers-by… And you, when will you answer the call of the Jardins de la Chatonnière?

Dance (14)

La Chatonnière Welcome to the Dance Garden, whose hour of glory is in March, at the time when forty thousand daffodils emerge from the ground by pushing their white or pale yellow corollas towards the first suns of the year. Then, the garden is discreet for ten months, the bulbs taking rest under the thick lawn, until the following spring. The carpet of daffodils extends into the undergrowth. Here, the bulbs draw four branches of freedom.
