Today we visited the Château de Villandry and its beautiful gardens, which are considered to be among the most beautiful gardens in France.

Château de Villandry is about 30 minutes from where we are staying this week. We got there shortly after opening at 9:00 and were among the first in to explore the gardens. We got an informative audio tour and tickets for the castle and garden (€12 each).

Here are some photos of our visit:

The following photos are from the Kitchen Garden, with dozens of different fruits and vegetables growing in patches of endless geometric shapes edged in immaculately clipped hedges:
