The gardens of the castle of Villandry were first set up together with the castle in the 16th century. In the 19th century they were rearranged into an English-style park around the castle. In the early 20th century they were restaurated by Joachim Carvallo-Adelmani. The gardens extend over three levels, with the water gardens on the highest level, the love and music gardens one level lower and the vegetable garden on the lowest level.
