18 & 19 september : The European Heritage Days (Journées Européennes du Patrimoine)
To celebrate European Heritage Days, Villandry is showcasing the region’s artistic craftsmen. From interior decorators and decorative painters, to stone masons and cabinetmakers, many craftsmen have kept old skills and techniques alive, passing on their knowledge as guarantors of the preservation and conservation of our heritage.
During their visit to the château, visitors will be able to meet these artistic craftsmen, talk to them and discover the trades and expertise they have preserved. Visitors can even try their hand at some of the techniques!
To enhance these two days, guided tours of the gardens along with horse-drawn carriage rides will also be offered to the public.
