Join us on 21 February to enjoy a unique insight into French Renaissance architecture and the life of a household from the comfort of your sofa!
Located in the Loire Valley, 140 miles southwest of Paris, the Château d'Azay-le-Rideau is an icon of the new art of building and living in 16th century France.
Its architecture is a subtle blend of French traditions and decorations inspired by antique Rome and its successive owners have contributed to making it one of the most harmonious and refined architectural gems in the Val-de-Loire. Water mirrors, a grand staircase and rich collections of furniture and artworks make it an exceptional monument!
Led by a guide from the Château, this tour will take you through the various rooms of this emblematic monument of the French Renaissance. A captivating dive into history to learn about the lifestyle of its owners over the centuries.
