AZAY LE RIDEAU Between the arms of the Indre, the Castle of Azay le Rideau is one of the most beautiful Renaissance successes. Here, beauty is more modest than triumphant and from this comes its purer and more calming quality. The castle is built on an L-shaped plan and stands on a loop of the river INDRE. It's one of the most elegant creations of the early Renaissance and the great staircase, within the main part of the mansion is a masterpiece. (16th century furniture and tapestries).
