Chateau Chenonceau

Leaving Tours the next stop was at one of the beautiful Chateaus of the Loire Valley. Chateau de Chenonceau is a beautiful Grand House, set among perfectly manicured gardens. It also boasts the unique feature of having been built spanning the river Cher.

The grand drive leading up to the Chateau, snapped in a rare moment largely free from other tourists 🙂

The entrance to the lovely Chateau.

The Great hall at Chenonceau is the part of the Chateau that spans the river in a series of arches.
