the views from the upper gallery are wonderful, especially when boats go underneath. The museum section is also most interesting Since my last visit many years ago the furniture and rooms are now much more ornate and complete. I was amazed at the volume of visitors. The gardens are just as beautiful as I remember. To me this is the most interesting and different of all the chateaux I have seen in France . Lunch at the take away cafe was excellent and very good value with a really excellent variety available.

This is my favorite chateau on the Loire. The tour is lovely. Did you know that refugees snuck over the border here during WWII? On their way out of Vichy France. The grace of the design on the river is breathtaking.

Nice castle to visit. However, during the Covid-19 period, the castle is sometimes a bit small (corridors and rooms) to allow the visit to run in one walking direction. You pass a lot very close to someone else. Mouth masks are mandatory but not everyone wears them correctly and the French are not so careful with keeping their distance. There is only surveillance at the entrance and the doors and windows are open for ventilation, but the staff does not address anyone about it if they are not wearing their masks or are not wearing them correctly. Tickets cannot be reserved for one specific day or hour, which means that many people are present at the same time. We did not feel comfortable on this visit.

Château de Chenonceau is a must to visit when you are in Loire Valley. The castle has been built on the river with an interesting architecture. The history of the castle is also amazing. Be sure to visit the castle as well as the gardens. You can also plan a visit on the river getting boats in the village near by to see the castle from other perspectives

We were there on a Tuesday morning outside of the main season. There were many people, although probably not comparable to main season. In the castle it was very narrow so no distancing possible. There were people everywhere and as it is rather small it felt very cramped. The parc is very nice with many different places to visit. If you don't mind crowds this is certainly a beautiful castle to visit.
