The castle looks great on the outside, not one of the best decorated on the inside though. However, it is host to lots of artworks, and collections do change. The stables are the most beautiful in France. Mostly, people go to this castle to visit...More

Venturing eastwards to Chaumont to explore the chateau we purchased the additional ticket to the Festival Gardens. What a treat. Acres of beautiful gardens set out in a huge parkland which is the Goualoup Park and each designed by a different artist and all full...More

I bought the complete ticket package on line before leaving the US, and I'm so glad I toured the entire place. Completely enchanting from start to finish. Be prepared to walk a lot, as the grounds are extensive. The whole experience, the castle, the grounds...More

This is such a pretty, fairytale chateau, you almost expect Cinderella to come tripping out! The massive pinnacle turrets soar up into the sky and the castle is located high on the bluff above the Loire. A beautiful setting. Inside you can follow the history...More

Lovely grounds - especially the gardens (part of international garden festival). Inside was somehow more interesting than the larger chateaux - felt more intimate and interesting (similar feel to Berkeley castle in the UK).

In retrospect, if I had to choose just one castle I had a pleasure to visit along the Loire, I would choose this one. Do not get me wrong: it has enjoyable grounds, looks a bit fairytale-like, and it is definitely well-preserved. Original furniture and...More

After visiting two lovely chateaux (Chambord and Chenonceau), we found this chateau to be a total waste of our time and money. Yes, the grounds are nice (others are nicer) and the structure is ok (not fabulous, but we were 'game'), but the most annoying...More

We started off looking at the contemporary art exhibition which was very varied and full of creativity, from video through to sculptures in various out buildings around the grounds. The numerous conceptual gardens will probably look much better as they grow during the season but...More

Chaumont-sur-Loire castle is a major landmark on the road from Blois to Amboise, not to be missed. After the king’s accident, his wife Catherine de Médicis made a swap with the king’s favourite Diane de Poitiers and took over Chenonceau. A good choice apparently …...More

Hi Sabrina, to be honest many of the chateaux are all fabulous. If you have not been before I would do the list you have in mind - you will be very happy with the variety. Villandry for the gardens, Chenonceux for the... More
