Les Tuileries

James Andrew - Les Tuileries

Paris is filled with some of the most beautiful gardens in the world – and its central and most prominent garden is Les Tuileries – a parterre which runs along the Seine between the Place de la Concorde and the Louvre.

This slighty downward looking view shows Le Notre’s masterful approach to planning, and his precise control over elevation to allow for a full appreciation of his work.

Designed by André Le Nôtre, landscape architect to Louis XIV, the Tuileries garden is the quintessence of what has come to be known as the French formal style – with its large scale geometrical schemes, highly controlled perspectives, water elements, classical statuary, and elaborate topiary, Les Tuileries elevates all with the grandest staging – a garden literally fit for a King!
