The Château de Rivau is a trip to dreamland for a day - unlike any other! Ten kilometres from Chinon, the fantastic and magical world of the Château du Rivau invites you on an unexpected journey to the heart of its fairy-tale. Visited by Joan of Arc and quoted by Rabelais, the unique medieval château and museum tour plunge visitors into a vast, richly furnished princely residence of the late Middle Ages. along with authentic collections of decorative arts from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, many pieces of contemporary art add to the magic of the place and contribute to the atypical nature of the visit of this “château of legend”. Classified as a “Jardin Remarquable” and with a fragrant rose conservatory, the fourteen gardens of Rivau recount tales and legends with humour and fantasy. Symbolic of the imagination present everywhere at Rivau, works of art installed in the gardens challenge visitors around every corner. The Château offers a theatrical tour with an audiovisual projection in the royal stables inviting young and old to travel back to the time of jousting tournaments and to relive the rich equestrian past of Rivau. Delightfully situated opposite the Gargantua kitchen garden, in the shade of the orangery on the veranda if it rains, the “Fairies' table” serves tasty specialities of the Loire Valley with salads and vegetables from our own garden. Open from April 1 to September 30 and during the Autumn half-term holidays for lunch.
