Château du Rivau Garden & Castle

Château du Rivau has everything you'll need for a day of immersion, and inspiration. The UNESCO world heritage site allows you to explore a historical medieval castle, walk around lush botanical gardens while admiring the well-kept landscape and dine at a restaurant that serves farm to table food from the fruitful castle grounds. From where I took this photo, you're able to capture an image that looks like it's straight out of a French fairytale!
