What to expect

Visit a stunning château of the Loire Valley, as well as a charming genuine family-owned château in which you will instantly feel like home!

We will start our visit at château de Villandry, a Renaissance jewel ranking high in French heritage. You will time-travel from Renaissance to life in France back in the 18th century. You'll stroll through all the rooms of the chateau, with plenty of thrilling anecdotes! The big highlight of Villandry is the garden à la française, a beautiful and delicately-manicured landscape masterpiece.

You'll then head to château de L’Islette, a private château still inhabited by the French family who inherited this historical monument. Be prepared for a very unusual visit, as your guide will take you to all the rooms of the house, including the most intimate ones. The highlight of your tour will be the French picnic lunch in the Park of the chateau. You'll enjoy a Loire wine, perfectly matching a selection of tasty local products.
