CHENONCEAU & CHAUMONT
A Private Loire Valley Tour By RiverLoire
At 9:15 am, you will start your day with a nice drive to the town of Chenonceaux through the beautiful forest of Amboise. The Château de Chenonceauis a supreme example of the Renaissance architecture. Set on its anchors of stone it withstands the ravages of time. On the way, you will have the opportunity to have a quick glance at the amazing Pagoda of Chanteloup, built in the 18thcentury to celebrate friendship.
For your lunch, we suggest you to have lunch at the chic restaurant “L’Orangerie”, located in the park of the Château of Chenonceau.
After lunch, we will drive through the countryside and cross charming villages. On our way, we will stop in Chaumont-sur-Loire. Nested at the bottom of a park of huge centenary cedars, the Château de Chaumont dominates the peaceful course of the Loire river. Built between 1469 and 1566, this harmonious and fine building shows the transformation of a medieval fortress into a Renaissance residence.
Driving along the north bank of the Loire river, we will make our way back to Amboise. This drive will allow you to enjoy a wonderful view of the Château de Chaumont and the Royal Château of Amboise. Don’t hesitate to ask your driver to stop for unique picture opportunities !
