France_Château_de_Chenonceau_castle

Visit the dreamy Château de Chenonceau

Come for a wonderful day in the Loire Valley where you will discover the famous castles and gardens of the Renaissance period. See Amboise, Chenonceau, Chambord Castles in one day trip from Paris.

Be amazed by the Chambord Castle which, as legend has it, Leonardo da Vinci, who was then living in Amboise, made several plans & models used for the construction of the chateau.

The contruction of the marvelous Chambord chateau began under Francois I in 1519 and was not completed until much later by Henri II, Charles IX and Henri III. Around 2,000 men worked on the construction during Francois I's time. 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, sometimes called The Cradle of the Renaissance, is one of the first truly "royal" residences of its kind. The chateau was built during the 15th and the 16th centuries on the orders of Charles VIII, Louis XII and François.
The Ladies Castle, or Chenonceau, is located on the Cher river and was built in 1513. Thomas Bohier bought the castle before 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 the Crown.
