Huge estates, fairytale parks and historical rooms... Put on your most beautiful costume and discover French traditions with this Chateau Villandry Tour + Vouvray Wine Tasting.
Chateau Villandry Tour + Vouvray Wine Tasting
We'll pick you up at the Tourist Office in Tours at 9 am.
Our first stop will be the elegant and unmissable Villandry Castle. The guide will take you through the different rooms around the castle before showing you its French gardens... Straight out of a fairy tale!
You can then enjoy a more intimate experience by visiting a private family castle, where the owners still live. After touring the interior of the castle and greeting the Countess, you can share a delicious glass of wine and a homemade snack in the park gardens with the group.
After this nice convivial moment, you'll be taken back to Tours, where you'll have some free time for lunch in a traditional bakery or wherever you wish (at your own expense).
At 2 pm, the tour will continue to Vouvray, a beautiful region rich in wine-growing tradition, where you'll first meet a winegrower in an authentic family estate. The local terroir allows the production of elegant white wines, dry, sweet or sparkling, such as Chenin blanc.
You'll then explore a historic wine cellar and, thanks to the expert knowledge of the guide, you'll discover the secrets of winemaking according to the "traditional method". Fascinating!
The tour will end at the starting point in Tours at 6:30 pm.
