Accommodation in France for Garden Lovers
Many of our partner B&Bs in France are garden lovers who have delighted in transforming their often extensive gardens into beautiful spaces which you, as a garden lover, can explore and appreciate.
These B&B owners will take great pleasure in sharing the fruits of their labour with fellow garden lovers. Many will be all too happy to give you a guided tour of their gardens, talking you through their choice of plants and shrubs and providing you with inspiration for your own gardens back home.
Choose from boutique French chateau B&Bs surrounded by acres of lovingly tended landscape gardens which are open to the public, or smaller family home B&Bs with gardens that are a labour of love.
Brittany has numerous gardens that are open to the public as well as several B&Bs that are owned by garden loving hosts. If horticulture or gardening is your passion, consider a short break or holiday in Brittany near the beaches of the North Brittany coast.
