    What to Expect
    Visit: Chateau de Villandry, 3 rue Principale, 37510 Villandry France

    Explore the emblematic Chateau de Villandy for a unique insight of Renaissance into the architecture and gardens of the Renaissance.

    Discover the Chateau where you will find a lively and refined interior reflecting the French "Art de Vivre" in the 18th century.

    The decorative kitchen garden has a profusion of colourful flowers and vegetables planted in a chequerboard plan. The effect of the seasonal variations is an ever-changing three-dimensional picture.

     In the ornamental garden, the box hedges form musical symbols, but pride of place is given to hearts, scrolls, butterflies, fans … allegories of love  - tender, passionate, fickle and tragic.

     The water garden is the most tranquil:  here the pool takes centre stage, with the sound of the fountains and the great lawned spaces bringing visitors a feeling of calm and tranquillity. This is the most peaceful garden you could find, ideal for relaxing or just dreaming!

     The site is completed by the herb garden, with its medicinal and culinary plants, and the arboured maze, where adults and children love to lose themselves.

     Villandry has been in the Carvallo family since 1906. It was Joachim Carvallo, a Spaniard,  and his American wife, Ann Coleman, who created the gardens around 1910.

    The castle, which was refurbished in the 18th century, has recently been restored.

    This is a friendly, family home, where every room tells the story of an era, thanks to its furniture and careful decoration.

    This is such a lovely place with seasonal gardens of flowers and vegetables. It has beauriful views from inside the castle as well as outside. Check out the pond with the swans. A must see!

    Better than Versailles: a lot of parking and no lines queues. Good castle and gardens. Come in when the weather is nice for outdoors.

    Both formal & informal gardens wonderfully laid out with edible colourful vegetables in amongst the squares. Plenty of shaded walks, so even on a really hot, sunny day, it is a comfortable experience.
