Duration: about 10-hour tour.


• Visit the iconic Château of Chenonceau with your local guide, one of the most stunning examples of Loire Valley architecture, with its immense gallery that spans the width of the Cher river, giving it the nickname of the “Ponte Vecchio of France.” Nicknamed the Château des Dames – the Ladies’ Château – it was successively owned by many women of power and influence including Diane de Poitiers and Caterina de’ Medici.

• Inside the château we will discover the incredible collection of masterpieces (Reubens, Van Dyck, Corregio…), the royal bedrooms, salons for King François I and King Louis XIV, the chapel, and of course the gallery designed by Caterina de’Medici.


• The fairy-tale Château de Chambord is the largest of all the Loire Valley châteaux and is housed deep in the largest closed, forested park in Europe. Commissioned by King François I, Chambord is the culmination of Renaissance architecture and ingenuity.

• We will pay special attention to the innovative design –  from Leonardo da Vinci’s double-spiral staircase at the heart of the château, to the blueprint of the château in the form of a cross, to the royal rooms and incredible gardens.  We will take the time to discover this revolutionary château.

• Following our visit to the château, we will meet a local winemaker and have a private tasting in his winery near Chambord.
