The terraces of the Jardins de La Cure in Mortagne-Sur-Sèvre have existed since the 18th century with the romantic side of most of the period gardens. The alternation of brick and granite is inspired by Tuscan gardens.
This style was imported by the great industrial weaving families of the time.
This place is special to photograph, because it is on the hillside and offers a beautiful panorama of the Sèvre Nantaise and its valley.
The Jardins de La Cure in Mortagne-Sur-Sèvre have a particular south-west orientation which means that they are only lit by the sun in the afternoon or evening depending on the season. A professional photographer must always worry about the orientation of a place which can change significantly depending on the season.
