Engarran is the central part of a 150-acre vineyard estate in the south of France. Built on the north side of a hill and overhanging a creek, the gardens are sequenced along a main perspective long of approximately one kilometer.

The architectural quality of the site deals with several items: a monumental sequence of three main fountains, open air beds of grass and shaded groves, a collection of 18th century statues that fits perfectly with the romantic atmosphere of the site. The restoration process has started with a detailed mapping of the garden based on laser technology.
