Chateau de Villandry Reviews
Sans doute l’un des châteaux les mieux meublés du val de Loire. Toutes les pièces sont meublées avec goût. Les jardins sont sublimes agrémentés de fontaine. more »Undoubtedly one of the best furnished castles in the Loire Valley. All rooms are tastefully furnished. The gardens are sublime and fountain-filled.
Joli château et jardins imposants , bien entretenus. Les jardins sont magnifiques , à faire absolument. Très paisible de se ballader dans ce jardin remarquable. more »Nice castle and imposing gardens, well maintained. The gardens are beautiful, to do absolutely. Very peaceful to stroll in this remarkable garden.
Beautiful place and splendid gardens. We took the free guided tour which was well worth it. We paid a reduced entry price as the gardens were not in bloom at the time of our visit (end of March) There is a café on the grounds but you can also leave the castle and go to one of many restaurants in the village and come back to see some more of the garden later. Just get your wrist stamped.
Not sure if I should rate this. Only stopped for a drink in the village on the way through, but it looks and feels great. The coffee was good too
