Photographer's Note

Beautiful gardens in South East French.

'''The Eyrignac Manor Gardens have always been handed down to son or daughter, for the last 500 years : 22 generations have been following since the construction of the first castle or "Repaire Noble".

During the war called "La Fronde des Princes" in the 17th century, in revolt against Mazarin, the Grand Condé's troops revenged themselves on Eyrignac and burnt down the first castle, dating from the Middle Ages. The Manor was built in the 17th century. The first gardens were created in the 18th, : French garden inspired by the 18 th century Italian design. They were totally modified into an English romantic garden in the 19 th century, following the fashion of the time.'
