Overview
More
Chambord is the emblem of the French Renaissance through Europe and the world. The Domain of Chambord is made up of the château, a village, farms and a wooded area. The domain of Chambord is completely enclosed within a wall, all 5,440 hectares of it. That’s the equivalent of the city of Paris! It is the largest enclosed forest in Europe. The entire site has been the property of the state since 1930; when the public estate was created, article 230 of the law dated 23 February 2005 stated that the possessions making up the domain were given over to it without restriction or exceptions.

We read somewhere that is is best to go to Chambord as soon as it opens as 9am to avoid any queues so this is what we did. When we arrived, there were few people around but barely an hour later, all the coach parties...More

We have now visited Chambord twice and it remains most impressive in the size and scope of the building and the grounds. They do rent golf carts, which is an excellent way to see the gardens.

the chateau itself and the grounds were fantastic. The interactive audio guides were very informative. I could have done with two days there rather than one. The only room for improvement would be the café inside of the chateau.

Hello, To visit the château and gardens, plan approximately two hours (minimum). It's possible to lunch on the spot : in the castle or in the restaurants located on the square of the village (next to the château of Chambord).
