With a Renaissance and classic architecture, ranked among the 22 major sites of the Loire Valley, the castle of Valençay, excpetional by its location overlooking the Nahon Valley, offers the charm of the countryside near major cities. Located between the Berry and the Loire Valley, it is 1 hour from Tours, 1:30 from Orléans and only 2:30 from Paris.
Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord, one of the greatest French diplomats, rich collector has given all its luster to this castle built in the Renaissance by the Estampes family. Fully furnished and adorned with a thousand precious objects, it bears the marks of the refinement of a home that still seems inhabited.
The Mecca of diplomatic gastronomy, the Château de Valençay naturally fits into the theme of the taste of the New Renaissance(S] in 2020, brought by the Région Centre-Val de Loire. And what could be better than to start this year under the sign of taste by hosting the exhibition of the 10th International Festival of Culinary Photography whose theme chosen this year is “L’Audace”. After Paris and Monaco, it’s in Valençay that the event takes place, sponsored this season by Romain Meder, three-star chef.
