Welcome (In English)

The villa Fort France garden in Grasse is an Artist’s garden. The harmony of shapes and colours as well as diversity of species makes it unique.

Villa Fort France was built by Lady Fortescue, a British author, who wrote there her best seller entitled « Perfume from Provence« 

In the garden, the concept of biodiversity is brought to life. The banning of all chemical treatment paves the way to a sustainable equilibrium of fauna and flora (e.g., birds use thilensias to build their nests).

A very nice article about the garden of Fort France has been published in the prestigious magazine of the RHS « THE GARDEN » in the June 2015 issue.

We are very proud  as we know that it’s a reference in the gardens community. We accept it as a recognition of our 23 years passionate work in our garden.

Thank you very much to David, Clive and Jeremy for having allowed this publication
