Build on an island in the middle of the Indre during the reign of Francis I, Azay-le-Rideau Castle in Indre-et-Loire is a splendid example of Renaissance architecture. Although construction began during the 16th century, it was not until the 19th century that the castle was finally completed, including the creation of the landscaped park. Subtly combining French and Italian styles, Azay-le-Rideau Castle embodies romanticism in all its splendour. And its water mirror, reflecting the building's image in the River Indre, is no exception. Inside, you can admire beautifully furnished rooms, a remarkable grand staircase with carved ornaments and a décor inspired by four centuries of history. Outside, the architecture is just as sophisticated, with a 19th-century corbelled corner tower and a large dormer window combining Gothic style and Italian decoration. Let's end the visit in the landscaped park full of winding paths lined with exotic plants, and offering a beautiful view of the castle.
