General Information on your Loire Valley castles guided tour

Experience a full-day trip from Paris, and discover three of the Loire Valley’s most famous châteaux with an expert and luxury guide. Visit the majestic Château de Chambord, surrounded by one of the largest forest parks in Europe, the charming Château de Chenonceau, built across the River Cher, and the private, atmospheric Château de Cheverny. Go back in history, and discover what life was like during the Renaissance period, in these stunning properties that once accommodated the courts of the Kings of France.

Chambord

Chambord is one of the largest châteaux in the Loire Valley, nestled in the middle of a huge hunting ground. It was built for King Francis I of France in the 16th century with the help of none other than Leonardo da Vinci. See the amazing double helix staircase, which represented the Tree of Life during the Middle Ages, and the château’s wide panoramic terrace with its sea of chimneys that overlook the grounds. The castle was also the inspiration for Disney’s ‘Beauty & the Beast’.

Chenonceau

Experience Chenonceau, which was built in the 16th Century and has been home to many famous aristocratic French ladies, such as Diane de Poitiers, Catherine de Medici and the White Queen, Louise de Lorraine – also known as “The ladies Castle”. You will meet the view of Chenonceau over the River Cher. The architecture is overwhelming, and bears witness to a sophisticated and typically French style of living, with elegantly furnished floral rooms, tapestries, antique paintings and fascinating kitchens housed in the piers of the bridge that supports the château.

Cheverny

The final château of the day, Cheverny, is a stately home decorated castle with beautiful furnishings dating back to the 17th century, with remarkably well-preserved interiors.
