Also known as the “Ladies’ Château” because of the notorious women who built, decorated, restored and maintained it throughout the centuries, Chenonceau boasts a fascinating royal history that dates back to the 13th century. Feel like true royalty as you stroll through the castles’ rooms, which are lavishly decorated with exquisite tapestries, paintings and furniture. See the guard’s room, where men-at-arms were constantly on duty to protect the royal family, the Chapel with its stunning stained glass windows, and the royal bedrooms, study, library, and kitchens. Stroll through the gallery, a magnificent ballroom with 18 floor-to-ceiling windows and a slate-tile floor.

Round off your visit with a walk through the extensive royal gardens alongside the Cher river, featuring a maze, a 16th-century farm, a carriage gallery, and a vegetable and flower garden. With its elegant gallery bridge, Renaissance architecture, lavishly decorated interior and extensive gardens, a visit to Château Chenonceau offers an unforgettable glimpse into the luxurious lives of the French royals.
