The classical Garden à la française evolved from the French Renaissance garden, a style which was inspired by the earlier Italian Renaissance garden at the beginning of the 16th century. The Italian Renaissance garden was typified by planting beds, or parterres. The French Formal Garden, is a style of garden based on symmetry and the principle of imposing order on nature. Its epitome is generally considered to be the Gardens of Versailles designed during the 17th Century by the landscape architect André Le Nôtre for Louis XIV and widely inspired by other European courts.

 

Authentic Provence offers a fine selection of hand carved antique French and Italian limestone central  fountains dating back to the 18th C. to the present. We also offer to customize your central fountain as well,  which will be sculpted in the same manner as French artisans have been carving for centuries. These fountains are typically seen in France and are considered a part of the outdoor living.

 

Each of these unique fountains will undoubtedly bring the charm of Provence to your garden. Please choose from our vast spout and spigot assortment to find the perfect piece to personalize your fountain.

 

The entire collection may be viewed in person, in "The Secret Garden", a splendid outdoor space featuring the most beautiful, unique and antique limestone fountains, statuary, urns and planters. Please call us to arrange for an appointment.
