A fairytale renaissance castle in the Loire Valley, Unesco world heritage site.

Although magical creatures have today taken over the gardens and made a home out of them, this fairytale castle and its Renaissance stables also bears witness to great historical figures such as Joan of Arc and Rabelais.

Visit Château du Rivau and discover not only a genuine medieval castle at the heart of a UNESCO world heritage site, but also botanical arts in a 6ha Garden, contemporary sculptures and a peaceful restaurant (open from April to November 3rd) serving local specialities and produce from our own gardens.

Rivau Castle and Gardens are open from April 1st to November 3rd in 2019.
