Built in the early XVIth century by Catherine Briçonnet, the Château de Chenonceau got its splendor from the successive women who kept expanding and enhancing it throughout the centuries, including Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Medicis, respectively best mistress and wife of Henry II, before Louise de Lorraine, Madame Dupin and Madame Pelouze.

"a week-end at the Château de Chenonceau"
(To move to a place, click on the map above or use the menus.)

The "Château of the Ladies", exceptional jewel of the French Renaissance and one of the most attended castle after the Château de Versailles, opened its doors to us for the time of a week-end to let us explore and share with you, from the gardens to the bedrooms and living rooms, through the wax museum, a unique ambiance defying the centuries, thanks to over 50 panoramic views.

The Château de Chenonceau is located in the Tourain region, over the river Cher, near the city of Tours, 200 kilometers from Paris. It is open to visitors every day of the year. For more infos: The official site of Chenonceau.

Thanks again to the chateau guides and to the people who made this week-end tour possible.
