A must for serious gardener. The estate is private but the gardens are a jewel. A real shame they don't organise more in-depth gardening tours. more »

Very nice Castle, in a very calm place, I haven't been inside, but the gardens are very very nice, it was really a pleasure to take a promenade inside of them, the gardens are partitioned in quite a few categories, so you'll be pleasantly surprised by the different garden designs, passing from one garden to another. You may also find quite a lot of parking places right in the premises of the castle, also a few restaurants if you get hungry. I did enjoy visiting this Chateau.
The castle has the best gardens i visited. No matter the season, we totally lost the meaning of time. We visited the castle in spring, when the flower gardens were full of tulips and colours, and in the autumn when the veggie gardens were the star, full of cabbage, eggplants, tomatoes and ... chrysanthemum between them. Plus that in the castle small resto, all what they serve is coming from their garden. Add to this the lovely English garden, the herbs garden and the water flowing, and clearly the nature lovers will be in love with Villandry.
What an amazing place. The gardens are magnificent and the chateau is charming. Here you really experience the vision of the couple who took on a momentous project and created gardens that are outstanding and have created a legacy that is truly impressive.
Its smaller than rest and its pretty modern. You can definitely skip this one if you are short on time but if you love gardens, I would highly recommend.
A very well kept vast garden with so much to see and do. The chateaux itself was in good order but a bit smaller than expected. The main spectacle would have to be the multi faceted gardens where you can walk around for hours and have a picnic on the grounds. The smell of the roses were intense and had a great sweet scent all throughout. They have a small garden area near the kids play area with eccentric sculptures that are a must see too.
