AZAY LE RIDEAU / RIVAU / VILLANDRY

Guided tour of the chateau of Azay le Rideau.

This is one of the purest gems of Renaissance architecture in the Loire Valley. Financer Gilles Berthelot’s Chateau, delicately placed on an island on the Indre river, still shines today thanks to the lightness and balance of its mullioned, pepper pots, dormers and above all its graceful staircase.

We will not forget to admire the Chateau under every angle with a stroll around the English style garden, a jewel case of greenness for what is considered today as one of the most beautiful stone diamonds in Touraine.
Lunch at a family estate or at a traditional restaurant.

Wine is always the fruit of a love story between vines and strong personalities. Since its creation in 1957, the Estate seeks to showcase the “terroir” of Chinon in the most beautiful way, with a simple idea: a wine is the expression of a “terroir”. Discover this local domain where you learn how to pair Chinon wines with local products (cheeses and meats).
Discovery and presentation of Rivau gardens and château.

Rivau offers a remarkable balance between architecture, gardens and contemporary art. Discovering this confidential place is a funny and original experience. You will be amazed by the majestic aspect of this XVth century fortress, contrasting with its quirky art exhibition. The masterpiece of Rivau is the huge garden, inspired by fairy tales and cartoons.

Laid on 14 acres, and integrally designed by Patricia Laigneau, owner of the château, they offer the best occasion to stroll and relax among trees,flowers and contemporary vegetal composition.
