If you have a spare day in Paris, why not consider a day trip to a château? There are numerous châteaux in the Loire region, only 1.5 hrs by train from Paris. After arriving in Tours, I rented a bike relatively cheaply and rode 20 km along the Loire to reach the Château de Villandry.
It’s worth spending the majority of your time in the gardens. Be sure to see the aerial view of the gardens from the castle to see the perfect geometrical formations. Walking through the garden is also a pleasure…
The garden here symbolises “passionate love,” the positioning of the hearts represents dancing.
The garden behind is “tender love,” the red between the hearts are flames. In the center are masks, as worn at balls.
