3 & 4 june : Meeting in the gardens (Rendez-vous aux Jardins)

In 2017, Villandry is once more taking part in the national Rendez-vous aux Jardins event, when the public is invited to (re)discover the parks and public or private gardens of France. There will be two days of events taking place in the Château gardens, adding further enjoyment to your visit.

During this weekend there will be guided tours of the gardens (only in French) and promenades in horse-drawn carriages (from 10 am to 12.15 am and from 2 pm to 5.30 pm). Villandry also has a remarkable grass tennis court on which you can test your skills of lawn tennis with the help of a tennis coach (from 2 pm to 6 pm). Coming from all over France and Europe, figures dressed in Venitian costume – the same ones who take part in the Venice carnival – stroll around the gardens on Saturday and Sunday afternoons (from 2.30 pm).

For this event, the usual rates will be maintained.The guided tours and entertainment are included in the entrance fee.
