Imagine a dream location for a gardener, overlooking the gardens of Villandry! … Madame Cros has made this terrace with a view a little paradise for lovers of gardens, which she entitled Le Petit Villandry. In its squares blossom, flowers and vegetables, in association, with much poetry. My Garden & My House May 2012, N°628, pp.63
