If you are travelling for business or pleasure please choose from our selection of self catering accommodation in Richelieu. Richelieu is a town in the Indre-et-Loire department in central France. It lies south of Chinon and west of Sainte-Maure de Touraine and is surrounded by mostly agricultural land. The village was a 17th century model "new town", a walled town created by Cardinal Richelieu with streets running in parallel and at right angles. It is said to be the model on which New York and most other American cities were constructed. Within its walls he included the modest home of his childhood, the château de Richelieu, surrounded by an ornamental moat and large imposing walls enclosing a series of entrance courts towards the town and, on the opposite side, grand axially-planned formal vista gardens of parterres and gravel walks. Richelieu's chateau is long gone but the chateau gardens, owned by Paris University, are a delight, containing unusual plants and trees from across the world.
