    Tours to Azay Le Rideau

    Cycle to Villandry with its famous Gardens, matchless in Europe and composed of 3 superposed terraces.Perhaps the Loire Valley's most famous gardens, those at Villandry are enchanting. The symmetry of the beds, trimmed with absolute precision, and the harmony of the floral arrangements... from one terrace to the next, these green expanses are a symbol of perfect beauty. In one spot a labyrinth to get lost in, in another a kitchen garden checkered like an embroidery. The water gardens catch the sunlight and prompt dreams of long summer evenings, while the 'Jardin des Simples' captures the important properties of aromatic and medicinal plants.Then continue to Sache, where you can visit the house of the famous novelist Honore de Balzac.
