15 & 16 september : European Heritage Days (Journées Européennes du Patrimoine)

During the European Heritage Days, Villandry is honouring the region’s artists and artisans. Ensconced in the various rooms in the château, they will be presenting their crafts and their work, and conversing with you about their skills that are so vital to preserving our heritage. Interior decorators, antique furniture restorers, painting restorers, master glass-blowers and more besides; all these crafts keep the old traditions alive and enable us to restore and maintain our ancestors’ work even today.

Villandry is a private site financed exclusively by its visitors. The entrance can not be free during the event but group rates are exceptionally applied for adults (8,50 € for the visit of the chateau and the gardens, 5,50 € for the visit of the gardens only).
Young rates for 8 – 18 year olds: 7 € for chateau and gardens visit, 5 € for the gardens only (free for children under 8) .
