sh garden design; however, it has also showcased fine gardens abroad, particularly those of the Mediterranean region. In this handsome volume, the gardens of 35 glorious locations are presented in 200 photographs; accompanying the images are the stories behind each garden’s creation and development. We visit the grand private residences of Greece, Spain, and Italy, as well as the iconic gardens of the French Riviera—including Villa Maryland on Cap Ferrat, La Leopolda at Beaulieu, Edith Wharton’s own villa garden at Hyères, and Auguste Renoir’s home at Cagnes-sur-mer. The book also takes us, uniquely, to the fabled colonial and Arabic gardens of Algeria—long out of bounds to present generations—which the author revisited and re-photographed in 2005. A stunning survey of Mediterranean treasures for all garden lovers. Kathryn Bradley-Hole is the Gardens Editor of COUNTRY LIFE. Her previous book was the highly praised Lost Gardens of England.
