Chambord and Cheverny

mardi 21 janvier 2014, par alternat.net

Loire castles full day, "The Beauty and the Beast"

After a drive through little towns and beautiful landscapes, you will get your first glimpse of the Château of Chambord at the end of the gigantic tree-shaded roadways. When the entire palace breaks into view, it is an unforgettable sight. After a visit of the astonishing roof and its numerous chimneys, take your time to enjoy the beautifully preserved park. You might even get the chance to see the horses at work ! Chambord is a magnificent château built by François I. It is by far the largest and most impressive Château in the Loire Valley. Its design is said to be one of Leonardo Da Vinci’s ideas.

After lunch, we will make a stop in one of the best chocolate maker boutiques of the area. Their creations, entirely made out of chocolate and their unique pieces of culinary art, exhibited in the shop windows, are amazing and truly delightful !

We will then go to the Château of Cheverny. The castle, while not as impressive in size or architecture as Chambord, is renowned for its beautiful interiors and collection of furniture, tapestries and rare objets d’art. There is also a pack of about 70 dogs that are kept on the grounds and taken out for hunts twice weekly. Between April and mid-September visitors can witness the feeding of the dogs ; and, during winter, take part in the Cheverny hunt. It is a perfect place to discover the wildlife and nature of this splendid region.

Then, it will be time to drive back to Amboise through small picturesque roads to discover some hidden gems of the Loire Valley.
