Chenonceau is a beautiful chateau on the River Cher. Unfortunately, we did not have enough time to view the inside but loved the beautiful grounds. There is a maze and two formal gardens. The flower/vegetable garden is well worth a visit. Here they grow all...More

Thoroughly enjoyed the visit. As Rick Steves suggested the audio tour was quite good as the interior space has much history to tell. By starting our tour at about 9:30am we beat the worst of the crowds. Two hours later, as we left, they were...More

Unfortunately, the Chateau is deep within the park, so getting any sort of decent pictures is impossible. I would estimate the distance between the ticket booth and the Chateau to be at least 1/4 mile, if not 1/2 mile. I... More
