What is a garden for?
Interpretation points around the gardens offer children and their parents the chance to answer this question while having fun! A children’s version of the audioguide, designed specially for 7 to 12 year olds, is available in French.
A range of services (e.g. baby-changing facilities equipped with a bottle warmer) make family visits easier. The children’s play area and the hedge maze are ideal places to have fun, while the gardens as a whole are an invitation for families to have an enjoyable time together.
In addition, all of the chateau’s events include workshops for children.
Both shops have books and accessories aimed at children and budding gardeners.
Meanwhile, the restaurant “La Doulce Terrasse” offers children’s and babies’ menus, together with a variety of tasty snacks – including hot pancakes and homemade ice creams – to enjoy all year round!
The magic of Christmas at Villandry
From 4 December 2021 to 2 January 2022
This year, Villandry will be putting on its finest attire in a brand new display. From the warm sitting room with its wood fire to the family dining room, through the unusual oriental lounge, sumptuous decorations will sweep up young and old alike in the magic of Christmas.
The gardens will also be putting on their winter attire: mosaics of ornamental cabbages and leeks, box tree lacework and the outlines of yew tree topiary, and long avenues of sleepy lime trees are yours to roam and admire.
