When to go
The region is a popular destination throughout spring and summer, but late spring is the best time to visit if you’re hoping to catch the château gardens as they burst into bloom. Wine lovers will do best with a visit in mild autumn, when you’ll get a background of fire-coloured leaves and a ringside seat to the grape harvest.
