In the central region of France, the Cher River runs through the department of Indre-et-Loire and through the town of Villandry. There is generally one site in the Villandry that people intend to see when they book their Villandry budget hotel with EasyToBook.com. The Chateau de Villandry is not only one of the most visited chateaux in France, it is also one of the last that is still privately owned. Plus, it has been declared a World Heritage Site.
The land that the castle stands on today is where an ancient fortress once stood. In the 16th century, the new castle was built around the existing buildings that dated from the 14th century. Those buildings are where Richard I of England and Philip II of France met for peace talks. In 1906, Joachim Carvallo bought the property and restored it to its current glory. The chateau is famous for its Renaissance gardens, including beautifully sculpted formal gardens, flower gardens, a vegetable garden, and even a water garden.
