Verdant Villandry

Verdant VillandryWith beginnings as a Middle Ages fortress, the tower of which still stands today, Villandry’s castle was erected by Jean Le Breton, finance minister to King Francis I.

However, it was Joachim Carvallo and his American wife, Ann Coleman, who restored the grounds to their former glory.
