What to expect
Discover the three most prestigious castles of the Loire Valley with this excursion to Chenonceau, Cheverny and Chambord from Paris.
Model of the Renaissance traditions, the Chenonceau Castle is an architectural masterpiece. Known as the "Château des Dames", five women played a part to the interior decoration, making Chenonceau one of the most romantic castle in the Loire valley. The guide will introduce you to the history of the castle before your free time to stroll at your leisure through the sumptuous gardens.
Considered as the largest and most majestic castle of the Loire valley, Chambord Castle was commissioned as a hunting lodge by François I. However he only spent 42 days of his 32-year reign in this royal residence. The 365 chimneys, 440 rooms, 14 staircases and 800 turrets and capitals give an insight of the magnificent period architecture. The main attraction remains the intricate "double revolution" staircase attributed to Leonardo de Vinci.
The Cheverny Castle is the private property of the Vibraye family. During the visit, you could admire its wonderful 17th century furniture. Before leaving, you could go for a stroll through the gardens and find the kennels. The castle is also remarkable because of the inspiration for Hergé's famous Moulinsart castle in the Tintin comics.
