We visited in early October and were blessed with fine weather. It meant the tourist hords (of which we were too!) had died down and the place was quite quiet in the afternoon. The place is pretty unique, straddling the river and has a wealth...More

On last September we visited 6 castles in the Loire Valley. This one is our favorite. Not only it is beautiful as a building but it is also decorated inside, because some of the other castles are really empty inside. It also has a detailed...More

Obviously the chateau is beautiful - that's self-evident but it's also reasonably priced and well presented. You can see a lot of the rooms and there are interesting contextual displays. It's very busy in the chateau itself and because, as chateaux go, it's a small...More

Go early. Be there when it opens at 9:00am. Otherwise it can get to.be quite crowded once the tour groups and other tourists start arriving. Be sure to get the audio guide. Allow plenty of time to see not only the buildings, but the grounds.

My husband and I debated which chateau was our favorite (we went to 5) and we both agreed that this was the winner. We loved walking the grounds as well as touring the interior of the castle. There was a photo op at every corner....More

Also known as the most romantic one, Chenonceau is plain and simple beautiful! Allow about 1.5 hours for this visit, at least. Many photo ops. Fully furnished chateau.

This chateau is both architecturally beautiful and well furnished. The setting over the river is very impressive. If you are only visiting a few chateaux, this one makes the list of the top three along with Chanbord and Cheverney. As far a venue amenities, this...More

I have come back to the Chateau multiple times, it is my favorite in the Loire Valley, it is one of the few that didn’t get destroyed in the wars and remains absolutely beautiful! If I could only see one Chateau, this would be it!
