The intense scent of linden trees, Italian oaks and jasmine, as well as that of wild roses, lavender and peonies sweeten the days of guests laying by the pool or under the shade of the century old oaks. Silence reigns interrupted only by the sounds of birds and nature.
The gardens also feature an organic vegetable garden designed according to ancient monastic techniques. The raised planting beds allow the plants to grow particularly healthy due to a warmer and richer soil, as well as better drainage. The produce of the vegetable garden is used in the main kitchen of the Villa's restaurant. Participants of our cooking programme have the priviledge of entering the "monastic potager" to hand pick herbs and vegetables to be used for the cooking lesson.
