Description

Immerse yourself in the royal splendour and Renaissance beauty of the Loire Valley on an outing to the celebrated châteaux of Chambord and Chenonceau. Learn the fascinating history behind each place, savour lunch hosted by a French countess, and enjoy coffee and an aperitif in the stunning gardens.

Meet your guide in the centre of Tours and hop in a comfortable van for the scenic ride to Chenonceau, a must-see of the region, built on a bridge spanning the River Cher. Before entering, stop for a nice coffee break in the park. Your guide then leads you through the elegant, manicured gardens and tells you tales of the château's most famous female residents—Catherine de Medici and Diane de Poitiers. Note the refined decor and feminine styling of the castle's lovely interior, which is filled with beautiful antiques and fresh flowers.

From there, make your way to a smaller château for a delicious lunch, hosted by the French countess who calls it her home. Soak up the cosy atmosphere during this only-in-France experience and experience what it's like to live in a 500 years old château today.

After this pleasant break, your guide drives you to Chambord, one of the grandest and most recognisable Renaissance châteaux of the Loire Valley. Follow your guide into this historic palace, travelling back in time as you hear stories and anecdotes about the royal happenings that took place within its halls. Seek out hidden details in the 16th-century rooms, and then stop for coffee in the park with a stunning view of the château's moat, towers, and decorative facades. Afterward, head to a quiet corner of the park to enjoy an aperitif of local gourmet products before your evening return to Tours.
