Travels in France - Loire Valley


Chateau de Chenonceau.
When in the Loire valley you have to visit  a chateau, and so we chose the Chateau de Chenonceau, around 10 miles south of Amboise. This lovely chateau that straddles the river Cher is steeped in history - Catherine de Medici, Diane of Poitiers, Louise of Lorraine,  Charles VIII of Frances, Francis 1st of France, and even up to the second world war when Jews were smuggled through the property to freedom.

Lunch was back at Amboise, and after that we went to see the Chateau where Leonardo da Vinci lived for 3 years prior to his death. We were on the English-speaking tour of the chateau, and there were only two of us on that tour. Hugely enjoyable. He is actually buried in Amboise, in the chapel of St Hubert.

Note to self, Vouvray is very nice as well.
