The Château du Rivau is a medieval Loire châteauLoire château surrounded by 14 fairy-tale gardens.
10 km from Chinon and Richelieu, it surprises with its original approach and sense of humour. Far from a visit to a traditional castle or garden, the Château du Rivau takes you on an astonishing journey in the heart of extraordinary gardens...
Here all the senses are awakened: 500 varieties of fragrant roses, an extraordinary vegetable garden whose vegetables can be tasted in the castle's restaurant, monumental sculptures in the gardens and in the castle. But also treasure hunts and costumes for children, a tea room, a locavore restaurant, exhibitions and hammocks for adults. You will find it difficult to leave...

Description

In addition to the majestic silhouette of the medieval castle, the Rivau gardens boast 450 rose varieties and remarkable works of art. The Gargantua kitchen garden, Alice's labyrinth.... or the Bamboo Kiosk, this outdoor museum is like a fairy-tale and has received the "Jardins remarquables" and "Qualité TourismeTM" distinctions. Activities are organised in the fourteen theme gardens year round: workshops, storytelling and tea parties.
