Chateau d’Azay le Rideau Tours

Perhaps one of France’s most breathtaking castles, this beautiful grey stone structure appears to be floating on the placid waters of the Indre River. Built between 1518 and 1527, Chateau d’Azay le Rideau was once considered the premier example of French renaissance architecture. In 1905 it became a designated historical monument and later, the castle was included in the Loire Valley UNESCO World Heritage site. 

After taking in the impressive exterior, travelers can explore the rich interior, which is comprised of old-world drawing rooms, apartments, a kitchen and bedrooms decorated in 19th-century style. In addition to being a stunning example of French architecture and history, Chateau d’Azay le Rideau is also home to a large collection of artwork.

Practical Info

Chateau d’Azay le Rideau is located in Azay-le-Rideau in the middle of the Indre River. Visitors should be sure to check out the chateau’s attics, which are renowned for their impressive hand-crafted wood frames and a unique exhibit detailing the challenging construction.
