Chateau de Villesavin, Tour-en-Sologne

Château de Villesavin is a 16th-century country house in the Tour-en-Sologne commune in Loir-et-Cher, Centre-Val de Loire, France. The château is a designated historical monument of France. It is privately owned and contains several museums open to the public.History and featuresChâteau Villesavin is built on the Beuvron, on what was once a Roman Gaulic settlement called Villa Savinus. A medieval manor was later built on the site, and owned by Guy de Châtillon, Count of Blois, in the early 14th century.The present château was built by Jean le Breton, Lord of Villandry, who was the financial secretary under King François I. The château was designed by the French renaissance style by the same Italian and French masters who built Château de Chambord, away, including Benvenuto Cellini. Le Breton supervised the construction of Chambord on behalf of the king, and decided to build his own home nearby using the same materials and designers, and possibly some of the same budget. The château was constructed between 1527 and 1537, during which time le Breton also built his other home, Château de Villandry.

  • We visited the Castle almost by chance and was not disappointed. Its history is interesting, especially if you have, or you are going to visit the castle of Chambord. I advise you to do the tour, the guide is friendly and visit inside.

  • A nice collection of hyppomobile and a nice farm for children. A great welcome. The outside turn is fast enough.

  • We were delighted with our visit. A particular care for children: investigation on the traces of the ghost, meet with donkeys, sheep, and goats. And a particularly vivid tour led by a guide, warm and exciting. Y go also to support the maintenance and renovation of buildings whose history is intimately linked to that of Chambord

  • Spectacular architecture! Worth a visit. Was able to go in late spring mid-week so crowds were not bad. There's a lot more to see since the last time I was there 15 years ago.
  • Must discover castle! It needs more visits to continue its renovation. The guide is very knowledgeable, the owners are very pleasant and full of ideas and energy to maintain this unique place. Highly recommend a visit...
  • Not so interesting, basic stuff
  • Wow!
  • Very nice family castle with conducive to stroll outside. The staff is nice. Hunting the ghost, with the game trail through the Park, as the small farm and the bread for the fish make the happiness of the children. The guided tour of the apartments to see some very beautiful pieces of furniture. The visit of the outside gives access to the Museum of marriage and especially the Chapel: a Pearl with its rebirth frescoes relating the life of Christ. In short, a detour that is needed when visiting Chambord and Cheverny.
