5 & 6 july – 2 & 3 august: Nights of a Thousand Lights (Nuits des Mille Feux)
An unmissable event at Villandry, the Nights of a Thousand Lights will once again this year be the place to be for lovers of beauty and poetry. Illuminated by the flames of 2,000 candles, the château’s facades and the gardens’ geometric motifs will be revealed in an interplay of light and shadow. This exceptional nighttime opening will offer an opportunity to stroll Villandry’s paths at nightfall and see them adorned in light. Activities, wandering costumed figures, projection mapping and a fireworks display will delight young and old alike, who will leave with their heads full of dreams…
Due to the great success of previous years, this year the Nights of a Thousand Lights will be held over two weekends!
Adults: €12 – Young people: €7.50
