That's the most beautifull Chateau I have ever seen. Beautiful outside and Inside. It was winter and too cold, that is the only problem I faced.

This is truly a beautiful chateau. The grounds are gorgeous as well. This place is full of history, and if you like history you will like this place! We spend about 1/2 a day here which was plenty of time to see the chateau and relax on the grounds.

The Château Royal de Chenonceau is a beautiful castle with a very interesting story. During the summer, visitors can flood the property, and it can feel overcrowded with the rooms being historically of much smaller size than nowadays.

This was a fantastic visit to an old chateau. The rooms are a bit sparse on furnishings, but what they do have is just awesome. There is a nice chapel here, as well as a nice tour of the kitchen areas. The hallway on the second floor acts as an art museum and it would be nice if they were... More

I can never make my mind up whether I prefer the Château de Chenonceau or the Château de Chambord. Both are outstanding and well worth making a detour to go visit. Chenonceau is smaller but, in many ways, more personal than Chambord, so you get to see, for instance, the kitchens (just above river level) as they would have been... More
