Landscape and development Training and research Mission Val de Loire
The upgrading of Villandry’s surroundings, undertaken by Tours Metropolis Loire Valley, was inaugurated on 10 July 2017. The Château receives close to 400,000 tourists a year; they will now benefit from added security and their visit made all the more pleasant thanks to soft mobility facilities and a new tourist office.
Cars are now parked in the enlarged car park (440 spaces) rather than alongside the road. Camper vans and coaches also have a reception and service area of their own.
To get to the Château or the town, visitors cross a landscaped pedestrian square given over to soft mobility and bordered by shops.
The new tourist office includes a more spacious information and exhibition area (90 m²).
This Tours Metropolis Loire Valley project cost €2.85 M, including €1.21 M from Indre-et-Loire Départemental Council and €370,000 from the Centre-Loire Valley Region.
