It is a 16th-century architectural masterpiece, rising up from an island formed by the Indre River, and is situated within a romantic 19th-century park. The château boasts a colorful history. In 1510, Gilles Berthelot acquired the seigneurie and fortress of Azay, rebuilding it in the sumptuous Italian style that was popular at the time. After Berthelot's relative Semblança, who had been aiding Berthelot in building his wealth in the region, was accused of embezzlement and executed, Berthelot fled. The château was then given by François I to his companion-in-arms, Antoine Rafin, and his descendants, who lived there until the 18th century, after which it fell into the possession of the Marquis Charles de Biencourt, responsible for the château's beautiful gardens. Having undergone an extensive restoration program, the château also offers a new experience: new highlighted collections, a dream-like tour path, mobile tour guide applications, the romantic park and so on.

My whole family really enjoyed spending the afternoon at Château du Clos Lucé. My two year old daughter loved the VR recording of Davinci and Francis I as well as the kids play area and playing around with Davinci's inventions. The staff everywhere was friendly and helpful which made the day relaxed and enjoyable.

Incredible experience! the places overflown in France are magnificent! At times, we take control of our flying machine to pilot ourselves, it's super fun and we're full of sensations! I highly recommend.
