One of the interesting features of Château de Villandry is a market-garden that has been made in the tradition of regular French gardens. The history of such gardens has started back in the Medieval Age in monasteries where monks combined the cultivation of flowers and vegetables. At Villandry market-garden there are more than 40 kinds of vegetables and there is a special school that researches and supports traditions of market-gardening. Every year on the last Sunday of September the school holds the Day of the Gardener when amateurs and professionals of this business come to Villandry.
Bright autumn paints, joyful bustle, multicolor of grasses and vegetables could not help but involve the artist who happened to be at the festival. The feeling of a festival with medieval decorations attracts, surprises and creates a romantic mood.
