The views were fantastic, and the gardens were beautiful as well as peaceful. We spent very little time in the formal garden, but we did wander through the outbuildings, view the interesting selection of ducks, and watched a aloof cat in the flower gardens. The reconstructed kitchen was very interesting, and we couldn't believe all of the implements and kitchen tools! I loved seeing the river through all the windows. If you have to choose between this location and Chambord, I would choose this chateau as it is furnished as well as maintained outer areas. One downside is that the interior layout was somewhat confusing for wandering, and, although others have mentioned a map, I don't think we found it. After this tour, I decided to put the book The Serpent and the Moon on my reading list although it is supposed to have an unfair bias against Catherine de' Medici.
