Provence today is a paradise for garden makers, a natural haven where designers from all over the world mingle with homegrown family gardeners and local horticulturists. Few places have seen as many contemporary garden creations, in as wide a variety: from picturesque to minimalist, private to public, suburban plot to rural field, miniature landscape to vast environment. New Gardens in ProvenceV features 30 of the most extraordinary recent gardens in this remarkable region. Written by Louisa Jones, a specialist in Provencal food and culture and author of the now-classic Gardens in Provence, this breathtaking book visits new gardens along the Côte d’Azur, in Marseilles, Saint-Rémy, and Aix, and throughout the gorgeous countryside of southeastern France. Almost 300 stunning photographs take us behind the garden gate to experience the beauty of meadow and woodland tableaux, magnificent stone terracing, formal topiary arrangements, lush flowerbeds, and even a mountainside project by artist Andy Goldsworthy.
While these man-made landscapes may reflect international trends in garden design, they never lose their harmony with the countryside. As this beautiful book demonstrates, today’s gardens are not only a reflection of the region’s “sense of place,” but also an integral part of the Provencal art de vivre.
LOUISA JONES is a prolific author and journalist who has lived in Provence for more than 30 years. A specialist in Provencal food and culture, she has published more than 15 books in French and English on gardening and cooking, including STC’s Provence Harvest. Her 1992 book Gardens in Provence focused on traditional gardens in the region.
BRUNO SUET studied architecture before pursuing a career in photography. He contributes to a range of magazines, is the author of the award-winning book Le Temps du thé, and has presented his work in numerous exhibitions.
