You will be amazed by Chambord Castle which, as legend has it, Leonardo da Vinci (then living in Amboise) made several plans & models used for the construction of the chateau.

Chambord - This marvelous chateau began its construction under Francois I in 1519 and was completed until much later by Henri II, Charles IX and Henri III. 1800 - 2000 men worked on the construction during Francois I. Though this castle went through many owners, nobody actually made this place a permanent resident. Francois I himself lived in this place for 6 months. It was mainly used by the kings as for retreat or as a hunting lodge.

Amboise - "The Cradle nof the Renaissance" - One of the first truly "royal" residences of its kind, chateau Amboise was built during the 15th and the 16th centuries on the orders of Charles VIII, Louis XII and François.
Chenonceau - The Ladies Castle - By building chateau Chenonceau on the Cher river in the 1513, Thomas Bohier razed the castle-keep and the FORTIFIED MILL of the Marques family only keeping the dungeon. Later, it became crown property. Henri II offered this castle to his favourite, Diane de Poitiers. She then decided to have a bridge built, linking the castle to the right bank of the river. Following the death of Henri II, Catherine de Medicis took over the ruling and forced Diane de Poitieirs to return the chateau Chenonceau to crown.
