Château d'Azay-le-Rideau

The refinement of an early Renaissance château reflected in water.

Standing on an island in the middle of the Indre River, the Chateau of Azay-le-Rideau was built during the reign of François I by a rich financier, Gilles Berthelot, who wanted his fabulous new home to combine the latest technical innovations from Italy and the art of French architecture. The Chateau is a jewel of the early Renaissance and in the evenings during July and August, its romantic gardens come alive as the setting of the special night tour: "The Magic Mirror".
New! The castle opens the doors to its roof. Come admire the exceptional 16th century roofwork.

Designated world heritage site by UNESCO.
