Self-guided tour much appreciated, although the guided tour was offered on 22/12/2023 afternoon free of charge. Beautifully decorated for the festive season. The tour route was well signposted and the chateau's rooms richly decorated with paintings. A great experience.

The Château d’Azay-le-Rideau is a fine example of the blend of 16th-century French architectural styles in the beautiful Loire Valley. The castle is surrounded by 8 hectares of English-style gardens and looks like something straight out of a fairy tale.

Resting atop its own island in the Indre River, this legendary château has been here since the reign of Francis I. It was built between 1518 and 1527 and has recently gone through a major restoration to reinstate its slate roofing and early 16th-century framework. While you’re here, check out the castle’s richly furnished rooms, the intricately decorated staircase, and the stunning ceiling decorations. Outside, stroll through the 19th-century English-style gardens and wait for a bluebird to land on your shoulder.
