  • What an amazing garden! I’m not sure I ever went to Versailles, but I sure saw a lot of castles, and this is more like a palace (on my definition of castle 😅, well on what I’m used to in Portugal and UK) but it is lovely! I had a great time seeing the castle and strolling through the garden. I didn’t get an audio guide but I listened a bit to the French tour, and even though I can’t speak French, I understood enough to say, if you get on time of a tour, take it ☺️. The tour is only on the castle, but the guide was funny and you could she she loved her job ☺️ This place is really worth a visit, and I need more vacation days to see all the castles 🥰
  • Good value for money, 15 euros for 2 adults to tour the gardens. Gardens are a real work of art and well worth a look.
  • A very nice chateau. You can either buy the ticket for the castle + garden or just the garden. But just the view over the gardens from the castletower is well worth it. The Castle Interieur is also quite nice and is not so over the top, that you can actually imagine people were living here. The Garden is absolutely astonishing and a "Must See".
  • We visited Villandry on New Year's Eve 2021. The chateau was decorated for the Christmas and New Year which made for a spectacular visit. Although the gardens were in winter mode, we admired the extent and layouts of the various elements.
  • A pleasant visit to the Chateau. The gardens are fabulous and are the best part really. 12 Euro gets you in to both house and garden. Wouldn't bother with the additional 4 euro pp audio guide though.
