The Château de Villandry is a unique example of Renaissance architecture and gardens. Six sumptuous gardens await you: the vegetable garden, the ornamental garden, the water garden, the medicinal plant garden, the labyrinth and the sun garden. The château boasts 18th-century interiors and a collection of antique Spanish paintings.
Created in 1890 by Madelin, then Head Groundsman of the City, the Mirabeau garden is structured by two rows of chestnut trees which have stood here since the days of the cemetery which once occupied this site. The beautiful statues give character to this place which also boasts some remarkable trees — ginkgo, hackberry, honey locust and magnolia among them.
The castle of Montrésor overlooks the village, classified among the most beautiful villages of France. Its ruins, its fortress and its enclosure bear witness to the property's medieval past. The Renaissance house overlooks the balconies of the Indrois. Count Branicki, a great figure in Polish immigration, settled in this castle in 1849 to flee Russia and the ukase of Tsar Nicholas I. With more than 1,000 years of art and history, this property, atypical and furnished with the taste of the Second Empire, is open to visitors and continues to exhibit works of art from part of the Cardinal's collection.
