Chateaux of the Loire Valley

2014/08/25 34

When you come to France think in advance what would you like to see. France offers such a wide range of unforgettable historical treasures. I would highly recommend you to see the Chateaux of the Loire Valley. These castles will take you back in time, and possibly even change your perception of art. The Loire Valley has more than 30 castles, and each has its own history. On July 2014, I’ve decided to visit the three most beautiful and interesting Chateaux in the Loire Valley. I’ve visited Chateau De Chenonceau, Chateau d’Amboise, and Chateau de Chambord. 

1. Chateau De Chenonceau. This was my favorite chateau because it is very cozy and charming. A beautiful garden is situated next to the castle. After you visit the chateau, you can spend some time in the garden, and then go and see an old collection of coaches. If you are looking for a very nice place to dine, there is a really nice restaurant called L’Orangerie. It is located on the chateau’s territory. While I was walking to the exit, I saw so many donkeys. This place has an unforgettable environment

2. Chateau d’Ambroise. Located in Amboise, a very small but pretty town. If you came to Amboise and want to have lunch before entering the chateau, there are many cafes around, and you can try out the famous French crepe, which is made with buckwheat flour. I tried a crepe with salmon and a crepe with hot chocolate, vanilla ice cream and coconut. They were so good! There is a wine tasting right next to the entrance, so you can buy a bottle of wine and some goat cheese before or after you visit the chateau. The main feature of this chateau is the Chapel, where Leonardo da Vinci was buried.

3. Chateau de Chambord. It’s the most recognizable chateau in the world and the biggest chateau in France. A “must” to see if you love incredible architecture! There you will see the spectacular double helix open staircase in the center of the castle. Two people can start walking along the staircase, and they won’t meet each other! How amazing is this? There is a big percentage that Leonardo da Vinci was the one that have designed the staircase, but this has not been 100% proven. I do, believe that the staircase was designed by da Vinci. It’s an architectural phenomenon.

    Chenonceau and Chambord were my favourite castles! I’ve been several times in my childhood and I’ve got great memories of it. I’d love to go back soon and visit some local vineyards as well. The wine in this part of France is outstanding. xx
