  • Overview

    With guided tours of Chenonceau Castle, Cheverny and Chambord Chateaux, you have a smorgasbord of French style and country chic to engorge on.  Built on the site of an old mill, Chenonceau Castle stands on the side of the River Cher. The roots of the Castle lie in the 11th century, and after that tells a chequered story of malicious fire, destruction, rebuilding, repossession, disputed ownership, periods of habitation and abandonment, use as a hospital during World War I, and as an escape route during the Second World War. Now privately owned and faithfully restored to its former glory, Chenonceau displays elements of late Gothic and early Renaissance architecture.  Cheverry Chateau is renowned for its lavish interiors and collections of furniture, tapestries and objects d’art. Its ownership charts the rise, fall and restoration of French aristocracy, a reflection of the main historical periods of France. Chambord Chateau is arguably one of the most recognisable chateaux in the world due to its architectural blend of medieval and Renaissance design, giving it a quintessentially French appearance. Chambord is the most typical representation of a castle with a keep, corner towers, and a moat. It is the largest Chateau in the Loire region and boasts 440 rooms, 282 fireplaces, and 84 staircases. Instead of a tale of two cities, this tour will take you on a tale of three Chateaux! You will be enlightened, entertained and impressed by your day in Chateaux Country.
