The Château de Valencay which sublimes an architectural harmony between the Renaissance and classical periods, has never stopped developing throughout its history. In 1803, it was owned by Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand, a Minister to Napoleon. A symbol of imperial power, Valençay embodies taste and elegance with its marble, paintings, objets d'art and unique Empire furniture adorned with gilt bronzes. In ceremonial rooms and private apartments, the collections of the Château de Valençay offer one of the richest visits anywhere among the Châteaux of the Loire.
Château Valençay has many gardens: the French gardens, the flower chessboard, the Duchess garden overlooking the river Nahon, along with a a forest park called the “Forest of the Princes”, which visitors can explore on foot or by electric - a truly historic tour.
Enjoy a woodland walk through the Forest of the Princes followed by a tasting of vegetable syrups at the Café des Senteurs.
The story of the Château de Valençay can be followed at the little theatre built during the first empire. Private visits on Sunday morning with enchanting performances are proposed throughout the season.
