“Imagine a dream location for a gardener, overlooking the gardens of Villandry! … Madame Cros has made this terrace with a view a little paradise for garden lovers, whom she aptly entitled Le Petit Villandry. In its squares flourish, flowers and vegetables, in association, with a lot of poetry. »(My garden & my house, May 2012, N ° 628, pp.63)

« Le Petit Villandry has all the charm of its big neighbor » … « Suzanne Cros knew how to take advantage of this exceptional site and pay tribute, in its own way, to the gardens of Villandry » … « The guest rooms nestled in a small house from the 18th century, take advantage of the appetizing view of the vegetable patch ”. (L’Ami des Jardins, September 2013, N ° 1034, pp.16-22)

The Petit Villandry vegetable garden was distinguished at the competition of the Société Nationale d’Horticulture de France in 2010
