It is made from concrete and at the center is an island of greens low enough to enable cars to pass through. The narrow shape of the beautiful garden will give you an impression of seclusion as the gate beckons you in.
Chateau Miraval in Southern France
The view from this three-mile long driveway of this majestic property in Provence, France just might be one of the most breathtaking ever.

Chateau Miraval is a 1,000-acre property and the driveway adds to the sense of grandeur, as one makes his or her way up to the house. If the place sounds a tad familiar, that’s because the property was purchased by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. They now divorced power couple was married here.
Wormsloe Historic Park in Savannah
