Pinède (Pine Grove)

 
 

There is an air of Italy in this discreet garden, a place conducive to leisure and rest. The umbrella pines and scattered stelae evoke an ancient past: Arcadia is not far off, and one almost expects a shepherd to appear, stepping straight out of a baroque pastoral. Or is it a solitary wanderer, drawn into reverie by the melancholic charm of the place?

The Pinède, in William Christie's words:

"This pine grove, or boschetto, is a nod towards Italy. Its components are quite simple: a collection of umbrella pines and cypresses. In spring this quiet, restful space blooms spectacularly with thousands of white narcissi and white tulips."

William Christie
