Loire Son-et-Lumiere Shows

Hello, All -

I am going to be in the Loire Valley from Sept. 19 - 22 and we are considering going to a Son-et-Lumiere show. From my research, it looks like the options available that time of year are at Blois Chateau and Chateau d'Azay-le-Rideau. Have any of you gone to one of these?

Any opinions?

We saw the set-up at Aay-le-Rideau, including special boats in the moat. That one looked really interesting.

Thanks for that info. That chateau is on my "short list" as it were!

Hi, jenny,

we went to the one at Blois years and years ago. i remember it being very good and there was an english option at 10pm on the nights it's on in September.

My ancient green Michelin guide to the loire lists the chateaux that have [or rather had] son et lumiere displays and at that time of year, there are only the two you mention plus Chenonceau.

you'd have to check the up to date position though.

while you are there, don't miss the gardens at Villandry. they were a real highlight of our trip a few years ago.

Have a great trip,

regards, ann
