Albion Voyages creation of this ultimate discovery of Normandy's exclusive garden properties fulfills every gardener's dream.

Tucked away in the gorgeous green landscapes are several of France's exceptional horticulture masterpieces. From the finest examples of using earth, stone, and greenery to transformed personal visions into havens of peace and perfection, each estate speaks to a soul of its own.

Guided by T. Kleingartner, born in California, he traded citrus trees for apple trees with his move to France 21 years ago. Parallel to his digital publishing career, Thomas developed a love of gardening. Enriching his passion with studies at the National School of Landscape Design at Versailles, his professional clients include France's leading garden magazine, "L'Art de Jardins".

Imagine your day, strolling through a small door leading to a magical 17th Century kingdom of clipped topiary and carved stone, floating between earth and sky as one of the gardens on the itinerary creates its own sense of place. Nearby, a great estate creates gorgeous interiors with endless vistas to seduce the rich and powerful in the 17th century. Visiting the Normand property of a great literary family, you will explore the vast maze of rooms each telling its own story for every gardening season. Also, you will enter the country home of France's leading studio photographer and his wife who lend their expert eye for sale and perfection plus an encyclopedic first-hand knowledge of hundreds of gardens around the world.

Your day will be highlight with an exclusive visit and a picnic lunch at the most famous Chateau in Normandy which is residence to one of America's top 10 wealthiest families. Later, in the afternoon, one of your garden hosts will invite you to raise a toast to the day's discoveries and taste a vintage selected especially for the occasion. Paradise Can will find peace and perfection in the gardens of Normandy with this day tour.

Ablion was fantastic! We were supplied with every detail we needed. When we had a glitch in our hotel, they stepped in and solved our problem immediately and created a fabulous experience at the new hotel! Adrienne even came to meet us before we left Bayeux. They were a great team and I would highly recommend them.
