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.
