We loved this spot for a tour. Very traditional Chateau, well restored and historic. It's family owned now. What you should go for is the GARDENS! Beautiful. Fountains, mazes, flowers, hedges, veggies, trees. WOW! A nice stop when touring the area.

For the gardener and history buffs this is a must. Little bit hilly in places for the disabled, may be too difficult for many. There is a snack bar just before entrance which sells excellent food. My wife will never tire of this place.

Villandry is a beautiful family-owned château. It is a wonderful spot to enjoy and its gardens are breathtakingly stunning! The cafe at the château is lovely as well. Truly a delightful stop.

The chateaux is very well preserved and the garden is way more beautiful than the one in Versailles. There is a couple of swans in the pond and very well maintained paths to stroll throughout. Must See!!!
