Indagare French Garden Club:
Bordeaux & Périgord:
The Gardens & Regions of Southwestern France

This Horticultural expert, guide, author (and rose lover) Amy Kupec Larue will take you on a virtual journey through southwestern France in this four-part lecture series. While not as well known as Provence or the Côte d’Azur, the region is filled with charming villages, majestic chateaux with beautiful gardens, many artistic and cultural highlights as well as wonderful wines. Périgord is often described as the Tuscany of France and the region and its rich history are closely linked to two rivers—the Dordogne, flowing to the north, and the Garonne towards the south. Multiple tributaries and canals have carved the landscape here, irrigating these rural counties and lush valleys. Join us as we visit some of the area’s most iconic gardens, including Josephine Baker’s former chateau and the nursery that provided Claude Monet with his beloved waterlilies. You’ll also be transported to Bordeaux, where you’ll explore the contemporary art collections on display at some of the area’s finest wineries. Through this live lecture series, you will gain a greater understanding of this beautiful corner of France—and the exquisite gardens and chateaux that define the region.
