7 & 8 july – 3 & 4 august: Nights of a Thousand Lights (Nuits des Mille Feux)

For 20 years now, the Nights of Thousand Lights have been attracting lovers of beauty and poetry.

For four evenings in a row, the gardens will be lit up by 2,000 candles. Open exceptionally at night, the gardens are bathed in light and you can wander up and down the paths of Villandry at twilight. And when the sun sets, the 2,000 candles sparkle in a blaze of glory.

Special rates apply (coming soon)

The ticket office is open from 9.00 pm to 10.30 pm.

The château’s restaurant, la Doulce Terrasse, is exceptionally open non-stop from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. (last orders). Reservations are strongly recommended.
