What to expect

Among the most beautiful terraced gardens in the world, a 16th-century architectural marvel blending a medieval keep with Renaissance style, welcome to Villandry Castle. The last Renaissance castle to be built on the banks of the Loire, Villandry captivates visitors not only with its architecture but, above all, with its kitchen garden - a colorful checkerboard spanning one hectare, comprising around thirty carefully selected varieties of fruits and vegetables for their beauty. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, Villandry is not the creation of a king but rather that of François I's Superintendent of Finances, Jean le Breton. This magnificent Loire Valley castle is a must-visit, if only for its exceptional gardens. We cannot recommend enough ascending to the Donjon terrace during the castle tour to admire the gardens from above.
The gardens are open every day, all year, including holidays, from 9:00 am.
