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.

One of the most picturesque chateaus in all of France. Built over a river with beautiful gardens you will get the wow factor from your friends back home when sharing pictures from here. Cafe up front overestimate good sandwiches so stope there to get your...More

As far a venue amenities, this...More

I stayed in Amboise, a glorious medieval (and later) town quite close to Chenonceaux. Much nicer than Tours with lots of hotels, pensions, etc.. Has its own castle and fortifications, and Leanardo da Vinci lived and died... More
I stayed in Amboise, a glorious medieval (and later) town quite close to Chenonceaux. Much nicer than Tours with lots of hotels, pensions, etc.. Has its own castle and fortifications, and Leanardo da Vinci lived and died here. Amboise is the perfect base for exploring the chateau and wine tasting for the region.
