The gardens of the Château of Villandry

Just a few kilometres from Tours you will find the gardens of Villandry. From generation to generation, their owners have applied a high level of talent to create internationally renowned gardens.
 

Enchanting visitors all year round


There is magic in every season in the Renaissance gardens of the Château of Villandry. Take a stroll in the Jardin d'Ornement (the Flower Garden), which is divided into three parts. The Jardin d’Amour (Garden of Love) tells of tender, passionate, fickle and tragic love through the use of colours. Then comes the herbal garden with blooming herb, aromatic and medicinal plants. Finally, the music garden is an embroidery work of boxwood, yew trees and flowers.

Discover the Renaissance garden with its nine identically-sized squares, where vegetables and flowers have been planted side by side creating a chequerboard of stunning colour. The Villandry gardening team replants the beds twice a year using no less than 40 varieties of vegetables throughout the year, including the famous Villandry cabbage!
 

An invitation to wander


During your visit don't forget to take a gentle stroll across the vast lawns of the water garden, admire the Jardin du Soleil (Garden of the Sun) or loose yourself in the hedged maze.

The belvedere offers a wonderful view of the gardens.

Events and activities are held throughout the year at Villandry. You can enjoy a magical moment in early summer with the Nuits des Mille Feux (Nights of a Thousand Lights), while in the autumn, the gardeners share their expertise during the Journées du Potager (Vegetable Gardener's Days)!
