Worlitz Garden, Germany

Its inherent power and beauty of Worlitz Gardens wins it’s plaudits from all visitors. All the buildings and much of the atmosphere of the place was directly inspired by a variety of English gardens, including Stourhead, but its true genius lies in the way the lakes, topography and woodland areas have been manipulated to create different moods and vistas.

3. Giardino di Ninfa, italy

After visiting the Giardino di Nifa garden near Rome, many people list Ninfa as their favourite garden of all. It has an atmosphere all its own, perhaps because of the unique way it came into being.

planting flowers, trees and shrubs. Even in its derelict years, Ninfa had been well known for its wildflowers. The town hall was converted into a house, overlooked by a fortified tower that still stands sentinel.

There are carpets of cyclamens and other bulbous plants in spring, and later hydrangeas, roses, clematis and numerous tender or rare species.

2. Stourhead Garden, England

For many reasons the Stourhead Garden is the greatest set-piece triumph of the 18th-century English landscape movement, a garden of temples, grottoes and other mythical moments set around a mystical lake that acts as its beating heart.

This garden is often compared, with justification, to the landscape paintings of Claude Lorrain, since there is a bridge, lake and classical temple in the distance: a memorably romantic vision of antiquity.

1. Villandry, France

The Jardins du Château de Villandry is a visual, sensual triumph, with the vegetables in the nine squares of the formal potager garden chosen as much for their looks as their culinary value.

Decorative structures called berceaux (like large wooden pergolas) are sited at the corners of the potager, covered in roses, while beyond this focal space are formal parterre gardens containing clipped evergreen hedges, fountains and exuberant herbaceous plantings.

This is a garden that is beautiful -and unashamedly good fun.

The Chauvet-Pont-d’Arc Cave in the Ardèche department of southern France is a cave that contains the earliest known and best preserved figurative cave paintings in the world

From the Aurignacian period (30,000 to 32,000 BP). The Chauvet-Pont-d’Arc Cave, was discovered in the Ardèche valley (in southern France) in December 1994 by three cave explorers, after removing the rumble of stones that blocked a passage.

The cave is extensive, about 400 meters long, with vast chambers. The floor of the cave is littered with archaeological and palaeontological remains, including the skulls and bones of cave bears, which hibernated there, along with the skulls of an ibex and wolves. The cave bears left innumerable scratches on the walls and footprints on the ground.  The cave contains the earliest known and best preserved figurative cave paintings in the world

The cave has been sealed off to the public since its discovery in 1994.
