Le Ch√Ęteau de Berne

In the summer of 2014, Dominique Lafourcade visited the estate of the Chateau de Berne for the first time and discovered a magnificent natural site completely off the beaten track. Stretching before her was an impressive scene -an ocean of vines framed by the hills of the Var.

But regarding the hotel gardens there was a lot to do and little time to do it. A total transformation was needed in just five months to create something magical and poetic from four hectares of land while uniting the gardens with the buildings themselves.

Today, this well-known landscape artist finds a great satisfaction in her completed work and, above all, in seeing it open to an appreciative public.
