Villandry Chateau and Garden

Villandry Castle - Château de Villandry

Built on the left bank of the Cher river around 1532, by Jean le Breton (François I's Secretary of State) on the former site of a fortress from the 12th century ( of which only the dungeon is left and which was restored in the 14th century), Villandry is the last of the Renaissance Châteaux in the Loire Valley.

Villandry Castle and its famous garden's

A bridge over the moat takes you to the three buildings that surround the main courtyard.

Further along, the moat becomes a canal which irrigates the famous gardens that have been restored in the spirit of the 16th century.

The classical style outbuildings were built around 1754 by the chateau's new owner the Marquis de Castellane, ambassador to the King..

Dr. Carvallo, the last owner, began restoring the gardens in 1906 and made the Chateau accessible to the public for its interesting collection of Spanish and Italian paintings, the superb hispano-mauresque ceiling, and the numerous pieces of furniture from the 15th and 16th centuries located inside, in the left wing of the chateau.
