Acquired in the late 15th century by Charles VIII for his wife, Anne of Bretagne, the property was inherited by Francis I. Being a devotee of the arts, Frances invited Leonardo da Vinci to live and work at this chateau. Leonardo died here on May 2, 1519. Although the house is relatively small it is rich in history. A museum of Leonardo's inventions is situated in the basement of the structure. The adjoining outdoor restaurant is a wonderful place to have lunch or a beer and enjoy the chateau.
