Azay le Rideau

The castle of Azay-le-Rideau is a gem of the Renaissance located at the heart of the Touraine region, on an island in the middle of the Indre river.

Visit this gem of the French Renaissance, that was built under the reign of François I. Stroll around in the royal English park and enjoy the magical fronts of carved stones that reflect in the water. The relatively small residential part is made of a main body and a wing at right angling to it, horizontal chequered strips, surrounded by the Indre river and a wooded park. Every corner has a tower.
