About

Renaissance château. Unique architecture,built over the Cher river. A collection of masters paintings and a remarkable series of 16th-century Flemish tapestries. The Galerie des Dômes (wine cellar), exhibitions. Night-time promenades in the gardens during the summer, boat outings in July and August.

Built on the Cher River whose waters reflect the unique beauty of its Renaissance architecture, Château de Chenonceau is the wonder of the Loire Valley. Museum: a stone's throw away from the Diane of Poitiers and Catherine de Medici gardens, the Galerie des Dames de Chenonceau found its place in the former royal stables. You will see the dreams, ambitions, major projects and destines of the women who made the history of the castle.

Its arches gracefully straddle the Cher. Beloved home of Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Medicis, Chenonceau is the second most visited castle in France, after Versailles. This 16th century castle is marvellously furnished (the kitchens are a delight!) and an iPod tour is available. The gardens planted all around the keep will enchant you, not to mention the delightful village, which is spelled with an "x"!
