This château is a lovely family visit. The views of Blois from the viewpoint of the wall. The intricate stairs are gorgeous & it's so unique in how it's embedded in the heart of the city.

A big thank you to Amandine and all the other staff for making our visit wonderful. They freely gave out information about what rooms were used for (when the audio guide did not give you this information).

When we were there last week we couldn't get to Chambord but I suspect that is resolved by now. Best to check with those currently in France.
