Chambord - Chenonceau
Return 6.45 PM
Chenonceau, the Lady’s Château
From its feminine elegance, it is a gem of the Renaissance, with rich furniture and masters paintings. Laying over the Cher, a Loire tributary, this chateau is the work of 3 passionate 15th century women. Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Medicis gardens are not to be missed either.
Lunch in Amboise in a typical local restaurant
Your three course lunch (drinks not included ) in Amboise, at the foot of the château, will let you appreciate this lively, charming town, so typical of la Touraine. Leaving gourmet pretentions aside, just for the moment, you will enjoy a simple, home cooked meal.
Chambord, the extravagance of a king
Desired by Francois the First as a hunting lodge in 1519, this grandiose castle mixes the style of a medieval fortress with the elegance of the Italian Renaissance. Leonardo da Vinci left his mark through the main stairway using a double helix revolution similar to DNA.
