  • Feel like royalty at one of the earliest Loire castles to be built in the French Renaissance style
  • Explore the opulent rooms, intricate ceiling decorations and more in your own time
  • Stroll around the sunny English-style gardens that surround the Château and take some great photos

The Château d’Azay-le-Rideau is an innovative blend of 16th-century building styles in the beautiful Loire Valley. Surrounded by 8 hectares of English-style gardens, this French Renaissance castle is as beautiful as it is storied.

Sitting pretty on its own island in the Indre River, this historic Château has been here since the reign of Francis I. Constructed between 1518 and 1527, it's just gone through a major restoration to restore the slate roofing and early 16th-century framework.

All scrubbed up, it shows off its fresh face and historic trappings. Check out the lavishly furnished rooms, the intricately decorated staircase within the castle walls, and the amazing ceiling decorations.

And on the outside, the 19th-century English-style gardens are the perfect place to walk and wait for a bluebird to land on your shoulder.

Bien pour le château mais la signalétique en ville pour le stationnement et la direction du château est inexistante.

Très belle visite. Une grande promenade dans le temps en grandeur nature, nous nous y croyons, il nous manquait le costume.
