Entrance tickets to Château du Rivau
A unique blend of medieval and Renaissance architecture, Château du Rivau is a beautifully restored French castle set in the heart of Touraine. Although one of the lesser-known Loire valley castles, this French château seems to come straight out of a fairy tale, thanks to its imposing keep, protective drawbridge and glorious gardens. One can still discern its original square layout, typical of a 13th century fortified French castle.
Yet Château du Rivau is also one of the first ornamental castles to be built: its fireplaces, wide windows and frescos endow it with the harmonious style of a 16th century French château.
