Chateau of Azay le Rideau, part of guided Loire Valley Day tour D3Guided tour of the chateau of Azay le Rideau.*
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 mullioned, pepper pots, dormers and above all its graceful staircase.
We will not forget to admire the chateau under every angle with a stroll around the English style garden, a jewel case of greenness for what is considered today as one of the most beautiful stone diamonds in Touraine.

*Note: Azay-le-Rideau castle is being renovated. During refurbishment, the visit of Azay-le-Rideau castle will be replaced by a visit of the Chinon former fortress.

 

Chateau of Minière

Visita, cata de vinos  (Bourgueil o Chinon) y  aluerzo en una bodega o restaurante tradicional. 

Chateau of Langeais, part of guided Loire Valley Day tour D3Guided tour of Langeais Fortress.
A tour of the interior not only gives a good idea of the day-to-day life in the Middle Ages, but also provides reminders of a key event in French history: the marriage of Charles VIII and Duchess Anne of Brittany, which eventually led to her still-independent duchy becoming part of France. When Jacques Siegfried bought the Chateau of Langeais in 1886, he set out to recreate a model 15th-century residence, complete with furniture, tapestries and artifacts of the period.

Chateau of Villandry, part of guided Loire Valley Day tour D3Guided 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 size (15 acres, 1150 linden trees), Villandry is the Loire Valley garden not to be missed. With your guide, learn to speak the language of a medieval and Renaissance garden, discover the power of thyme and basil on your health.

Your guide will drop you off in Tours at 5:30 PM or in Amboise at 6:15 PM
