Guided tour of the chateau of Azay le Rideau

This is one of the purest gems of Renaissance Architecture in the Loire Valley. Financer Gilles Berthelot’s Chateau, delicately placed on an island on the Indre river, still shines today thanks to the lightness and balance of its mullions, pepper pots, dormers and above all its graceful staircase.

We will be sure to let you admire the Chateau under every angle with a stroll around the English-style garden, a jewel-case of greenness for what is now considered one of the most beautiful stone diamonds in the Touraine.

Wine tasting at an organic local domain
The vines of this estate are ideally spread out over the entire "terroir" covered by the appellation, from the gravel shores along the Loire River to the clay, limestone and sandy soils of the hills overlooking the valley.
The red and rosé wines produced in the domain are presented under the appellation "Bourgueil" AOC. They stem 100% from the " Cabernet Franc" grape introduced by the monks of the Abbey in the 11th century.

Guided tour of Chateau of Langeais
As best representation of everyday life in the Middle Ages, the Royal Castle of Langeais, built under King Louis the 11th, was the scene of the marrige of King Charles the 8th and Ann of Brittany. Discover amazing original sets of furniture and tapestries here in the spectacular Banquet and Wedding Halls.

Guided tour of one of the most spectacular gardens of Touraine: Villandry
By its diversity and originality (Love Garden, Kitchen Garden, Aromatic and Medicine Plant Garden, Water Garden and the brand new Sun Garden) and by its sheer size (15 acres, 1150 linden trees), Villandry is the Loire Valley garden not to be missed. Your guide will soon have you speaking the language of the Medieval and Renaissance garden, deepening you understanding of the healing powers of thyme and basil.
