Once a preferred retreat for kings and members of the nobility, it has been a center for the art of the garden for the past decade and, since 1992, has also hosted the International Garden Festival, which features a series of creative exhibitions devoted to landscape art, and exploring science, technology, and art with poetry and inventiveness, amid the vibrant Loire Valley landscapes and eighty-acre gardens.Throughout the year, the château displays temporary and permanent exhibitions, which have featured works by the likes of Andy Goldsworthy, Jannis Kounellis, and Sheila Hicks, among others.
