Chateau de Villandry

2000 candles will illuminate the magnificent Renaissance chateau and gardens at Villandry (37, Indre-et-Loire, Centre) west of Tours in the Loire Valley – culminating with a magnificent firework display. 1 – 2 July 2022 and 5 – 6 August 2022

The Nights of a Thousand Lights

At the end of the day, the gardens are adorned with light under the flames of more than 2000 candles. On the four levels of terraces, the promenade promises to be dreamlike…
For the most curious, guided tours will be an opportunity to discover the history of the gardens, from the Renaissance to the present day.
With family or friends,  young and old can challenge themselves on many games in the honor hall throughout the evening.
Golden eagle, vultures, nocturnal birds… The company of Faucon solognot and its proud birds of prey invite you for an extraordinary aerial ballet!
A fireworks display*, the lights of which will reflect on the large piece of water, will crown this trip to the time of Jean Breton, builder of the Château de Villandry, leaving all the overnight visitors, stars in their eyes…
