The Garden Guide

La Roche Courbon

The chateau was made in the fifteenth century and the garden in the seventeenth century. It was unoccupied for much of the nineteenth century and gained a romantic reputation as a castle of sleeping beauty. In the 1920s it was restored using a painting of 1660. In the 1930s a formal garden was designed by Ferdinand Duprat.
