European Heritage Days (Journées Européennes du Patrimoine)
During the European Heritage Days, Villandry is honouring the region’s artists and artisans. Ensconced in the various rooms in the château, they will be presenting their crafts and their work, and conversing with you about their skills that are so vital to preserving our heritage. Interior decorators, antique furniture restorers, painting restorers, master glass-blowers and more besides; all these crafts keep the old traditions alive and enable us to restore and maintain our ancestors’ work even today.
To make these days out even more enjoyable, guided tours of the gardens (only in French) and horse-drawn carriage rides will also be offered to you.
As Villandry is a private castle, the usual rates will be maintained but for this occasion, admission is free for children under 18.
