You may think the title a bit trite but avoid the east entrance unless you want a long (and I mean long) uphill walk to the château. Go up the hill and park in the south car park which is much closer but did not...More

If you're a fan of Catherine Medici, you'll love this castle. This was her original home before she swindled to get Chenonceaux for herself. It's a really nice tour inside, and a great garden area out front as well that's worth a stroll. Benjamin Franklin...More

This is actually three separate visits all in one, but you have to decide what ticket you want on arrival as there are different choices. The chateau itself: to be honest, a fairly standard affair, pretty with some nicely decorated rooms but not particularly awe-inspiring,...More

Hi Sabrina, to be honest many of the chateaux are all fabulous. If you have not been before I would do the list you have in mind - you will be very happy with the variety. Villandry for the gardens, Chenonceux for the... More
