Beautiful French Town

Architecture and Environment

Francophone Architecture and Environment

French gardens are renowned for their formal elegance. This influence can be seen in many public and private gardens outside of France. Without straying too far from home, we

have three worthy of a visit. Hillwood Estate, Museum and Gardens in D.C. is replete with French influences both within the home and throughout the extensive property. In addition, there are two du Pont estates, Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, with its fountains and Nemours Estate in Wilmington, Delaware, with a nod to Marie Antoinette’s Petit Trianon. Combining these two makes a great overnight trip.
