Château de Chenonceau

While in Tours, France, I took two tours with a company called Touraine Evasion to see Azay le Rideau, Villandry, Amboise, Clos Lucé, Chenonceau, Cheverny and Chambord Chateaus. These are photos of Chateau de Chenonceau.

To visit the Chateau, you walk on this beautiful tree lined path…

p.s.  If you’ve just began reading…I planned an 11 week, 5 European country, 21 accommodations solo trip from April – June of 2022.  Photos were taken with my LG Velvet Android phone.

Château de Cheverny and Château du Clos Lucé

While in Tours, France, I took two tours with a company called Touraine Evasion to see Azay le Rideau, Villandry, Amboise, Clos Lucé, Chenonceau, Cheverny and Chambord Chateaus. The first five photos are of Cheverny (one of my favorites) and the remainder of Clos Lucé.

As you can see, the Chateau was decorated for Easter.

Clos Lucé wasn’t as spectacular as the others, but it was very interesting. It was Leonardo da Vinci’s last home. In 1516, the he accepted an invitation from King Francis I and settled in France. From Rome, he brought with him his notebooks and 3 of his major works (the Mona Lisa, St Anne and St John the Baptist), which are now kept in the Louvre. He passed away 3 years later.

The gardens are filled with his inventions and is very educational.

Chateau Royal d’Amboise and Chateau de Chambord

While in Tours, France, I took two tours with a company called Touraine Evasion to see Azay le Rideau, Villandry, Amboise, Clos Lucé, Chenonceau, Cheverny and Chambord Chateaus. If you missed the first two listed you’ll find them here. These first five photos are of Amboise and the remainder of Chambord.

Unfortunately, Chateau de Chambord was being renovated and had scaffolding surrounding it.

Azay le Rideau and Villandry Chateaus

While in Tours, France, I took two tours with a company called Touraine Evasion to see Azay le Rideau, Villandry, Amboise, Clos Lucé, Chenonceau, Cheverny and Chambord Chateaus. I had tried to make reservations with a different company called Acco Dispo Excursions (they have the best reviews), but they weren’t able to book me although I reached out months in advance. I think because I was only one person. Anyway, these are photos of Azay le Rideau and Villandry Chateaus.

The first four photos are Azay le Rideau.

We only toured the gardens at Villandry Chateau, but they were stunning!
