Chateau de Villandry was so so. Its garden was huge but rather dull. The private chateau, Chateau I'Islette was beautiful and charming. I fell in love with it the moment we walked it. The picnic was definitely highlight of the entire trip. It was almost as if we were in an enchanting fairy tale setup. The 16th century chateau gave a feeling of residential as the owner still lives there. We met the owner, who gave us a warm welcome. Our tour guide set up the picnic on this little island in the shade facing the chateau. Superb lunch! Even though the lunch was very simple but it was very memorable.

What a great way to see Villandry and Azay-le-Rideau and the family Castle. The wine and appertiffs by the river was the exclamation point. What a great day!
