Château de l’Islette (Indre-et-Loire)


In the heart of the Loire Valley, renowned for its magnificent châteaux, stands Château de l’Islette, an example of 16th-century Renaissance-style.

Recognizable by its two imposing cylindrical towers, the edifice consists of a central rectangular building very similar to its neighboring château de Azay-le-Rideau, particularly in terms of the architectural decorations on the façade. An older section, a combination of brick and stone, dates from the 15th century and completes the ensemble.

The chateau is surrounded by splendid English-style gardens which create a harmonious contrast to the raw form of the building. Rare, centuries old trees make these gardens a botanical treasure trove. The current owners, who also live in the château, are committed to enhancing it and its grounds so that visitors can experience the architectural and natural heritage they have cultivated.
