Chenonceau Castle

Built on the Cher, whose waters reflect the unique beauty of its Renaissance architecture, the Château de Chenonceau is the jewel of the Loire Valley.

"Château des Dames" for the history of France, built in 1513 by Katherine Briçonnet, successively embellished by Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Médicis, saved from the rigors of the Revolution by Madame Dupin, Chenonceau indeed owes to women a part of its charm.

The enchanting site, the French Gardens, and the Park which surround it, complete the impression of delicate grace which emerges from it.

Chenonceau is not only remarkable for its architecture and its history, but also for the richness of its collections, as the interior visit reveals: Renaissance furniture, an important set of tapestries from the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries and numerous paintings by Masters.
