Thirty themed gardens created by different international landscape architects create beautiful and often times wacky gardens each summer, all around the breathtaking castles of Loire Valley, France.
Over three hundred proposals are submitted to the festival, where 20-30 are chosen to participate. Each year the artists and themes change.
The days include art installations around the castle grounds, as well as some access to the chateaus.
The displays are often lit up at night with thousands of candles around 10 p.m. from July 1 – August 30.
