The Village and Church
The village of Villandry is not lacking in charm. With its Romanesque church and 15th-century cottages on either side of charming lanes, Villandry is a pleasant village that is well worth a visit. The 11th- and 12th-century church dedicated to St Stephen is home to a fine pipe organ, donated in the late 19th century by Stéphanie Oudinot, wife of Baron Hainguerlot, the then owner of the chateau. It was in this very church that Joachim Carvallo was buried, in 1936.
