Built in the 1500s on an island in the River Indre and surrounded by a quiet pool and park, the château d’Azay-le-Rideau is harmonious and elegant, its stylised fortifications and turrets intended both as decoration and to indicate the rank of the owners. Inside, 14 less-than-spellbinding rooms and an extraordinary staircase with ornamented loggias on each floor are open to the public.
