What to expect

Wearing the robes of the Renaissance like no other French castle, Chenonceau is a symbol of the Loire's castles. However, in reality, this magnificent stone construction actually spans the River Cher. To hear the word 'Chenonceau' is to desire to explore and discover it. Famous across the world, it has many claims to fame: the second most-visited castle in France after Versailles, its architecture is visually seductive, the fabulous gardens have a magnetic attraction, and the castle still retains the aura of the many personalities who lived there. Known as the "Chateau des Dames" because of its noble connections, the castle is characterised by refinement and beauty. Some of the greatest ladies of the Renaissance stayed there, including the Dame de Poitiers and Catherine de Medici. Now, all of us can share their lifestyle and take in the castle's sumptuous decorations.
