The Saint-Cosme priory, near Tours, welcomed in the 16th century Pierre de Ronsard, who was a prior there from 1565 until 1585. Ronsard's last home, the house of the prior today transformed into a museum, contains the bedroom and the office of the famous poet. The remains of the church standing in the middle of the garden contain his tomb.
Saint-Cosme priory's nine tranquil gardens, where roses and souvenirs of Ronsard and his poem "Mignonne, allons voir si la rose" are featured everywhere, are the perfect place to daydream.
Days rose in May.
