Take a tour of Villandry Chateau in Villandry, France – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats. It's impossible to say which is more beautiful, the Villandry Chateau, or its gardens. This castle and its grounds are a perfect image of elegant Renaissance-style design. Jean Le Breton tore down an older 12th century castle here, saving only the tower keep. He then built a new chateau around the old keep in the early 1500s. The current size and style of gardens are a more modern addition to the property. The intricate and enchanting gardens are immaculately kept and stretch far across the property. On a sunny summer day, it's easy to spend hours wandering through the Villandry Chateau grounds.
