Château du Rivau
This fairy tale chateau is a must see. Beautiful award winning gardens with wooded area, a maze and a potager. In the summer the roses are outstanding. Also throughout the summer and in the autumn there is usually something going on. Jousting, garden events, theatre...
Fairy tale castle with quirky interior and wonderful gardens. A great place to visit for kids and adults alike.
Child friendly chateau and garden that will thrill adults and children alike, about 1 hour from les Limornieres but as with most day trips from here you can take a scenic circular route with stops
“A must - this is one of our nearest châteaux. Don't forget to drive to 'rive gauche' to see the spectacular view of it from the other side of the river.”
“This is an extraordinary chateau where you can enjoy morning or aftenoon tea in their beautiful tea rooms in the gardens. ”
“Its not really the chateau that we recommend, although beautiful, it is the stunning gardens. Laid out like a glorified 'potager' with formal planting, mixed with garden veg and flowers. A large lake with swans and a garden with perennial flowers, more like an English garden. Plenty of walks with stunning views over the garden. ”
