The Town of Villandry

April 23rd, 2019

Back to our regularly scheduled posts from our trip to France earlier in the month. After we left Versailles, we drove to Villandry. After much on-line seraching, I had booked a room at Le Haut Des Lys that came with tickets to the Chateau of Villandry (more photos of the garden tomorrow). It ended up being the perfect choice. The room was fantastic, the hotel quiet, and there were lovely gardens. Since we arrived in mid afternoon, we walked around the garden after we got settled in our room.










After walking around the garden, we walked into town (the hotel was only a block away from town) where we peeked over the walls of the chateau to see the gardens.





After enjoying a lovely sunset, we headed down to L’Etape Gourmande for dinner and enjoyed a wonderful meal, complete with foie gras. We were lucky that our hotel got us a reservation for that evening as we had wanted to eat there but had heard reservations needed to be made months in advance (probably being there before the busy season helped).

How do you go about finding hotels and restaurants when you are traveling?

    If I’m travelling somewhere during the busy season, and not tenting, I’ll try to find something with AirBnB in advance. Typically though I’ll just use bookings.com the day of – I tend to not plan my trips much in advance as I like to get up in the morning and decide which direction to go. And many of my trips are tenting or a combination of tenting and hostels, and I never plan these in advance!
