Overview
More
At the invitation of Francis I, Leonardo da Vinci came to live at the Château du Clos Lucé and stayed here for the last three years of his life, devoting himself to perfecting his inventions. Leonardo was prolific and inspired, working as an engineer, architect and theatrical director, organising lavish festivities for the Court. At his residence 300 metres from the Château Royal, he drew up plans for a model château for Francis I in Romorantin and designed the double-helix open staircase in the Château de Chambord.The Château du Clos Lucé is dedicated to showing and explaining to the public the great knowledge acquired by the Italian Maestro.

If you are traveling with kids, this place is a god send. After you get past the moronically routed line that forces you to go through a very dull clutter of house bits and a schlocky food court, the gourds are wonderful. From all the...More

It was the highlight of my visit to France, an ultimate pleasure. The palace is very simple, the gardens are huge. The inside is very ordinary which is surprising. We got to see Da Vinci's bedroom. Then you see illustrations of his work and inventions...More

Interesting to see where the great man lived but the inventions in the basement are more amazing. The on-premises restaurant offers good crepes and wine and you can dine with a view of the Chateau Amboise

After seeing the Castle of Blois you can spare 90 minutes to visit the last house of Leonardo. The house has been remodeled so one can imagine the renaissance man walking around it and its garden when not spending time with Francis 1.
