Eight pages presenting a summer retreat in Provence where the tranquility of the house extends naturally into peaceful gardens.

Dominique Lafourcade has created an enticing garden by integrating natural features including a hillside of fragrant pines and an ancient, open-face quarry in the Provencal mountain range of the Apilles.

While maintaining an orderly approach she has drawn from nature's bounty, choosing among indigenous plants, trees and shrubs including rosemary, strawberry trees, santolina, Spanish broom and Viburnum tinus. The result of this careful selection of native species is a garden which gives the impression that it is limitless.
