Château de Villandry

One of the architectural marvels of the 16th century, the Château de Villandry combines a medieval keep and a Renaissance main building. More importantly, Villandry has one of the most beautiful terraced gardens in the world. The last Renaissance castle to have been built on the banks of the Loire, Villandry constantly charms visitors with its architecture and gardens, which look like a multi-coloured chess board. Stretching across once hectare, the gardens feature 30 varieties of fruits, flowers and vegetables, all carefully selected for their beauty. Now registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Villandry wasn't created by a King. Instead, it was the work of Jean le Breton, Francis I's Superintendent of Finance. While the gardens must be seen at ground level, we advise you to ascend to the terrace of the Donjon during your visit to admire the gardens and the scenery from the perfect angle.
