Elegant and cultivated: formal French-style gardens

These gardens are all about order, calm and grandeur. Midi-Pyrénées has a wonderful collection of French-style gardens artfully designed according to the principals of Le Nôtre. They form the exquisite surroundings of Albi's Palais de la Berbie, the Musée Goya in Castres and the Château de Laréole near Toulouse.
