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.
