The castle of Villandry was built on the site of a 12th century fortress 15km to the west of Tours in 1536. The castle was built in Renessaince style by Jean le Breton as one of the last Renessaince castles, and therefore lacks medieval architectural elements. The highlight of this castle are its impressive gardens, which extend over three levels.
