Join in for a day of discovery, wonder and delicacy on this guided tour to the chateaux of Blois, Cheverny and Chambord departing from Tours.
Guided tour of the Royal Chateau of Blois.
This chateau is an amazing synthesis of 5 centuries of French architecture. From the courtyard, you will clearly make the distinction between the medieval, gothic, renaissance and classical façades. Very dramatic events happened inside this former royal residence...
Lunch at local restaurant in the Cheverny & Cour Cheverny wine area.
The vines that grow around the village of Cheverny are known for producing extremely elegant red wines, and very fruity white wines. As custom dictates, a traditional local lunch will be paired with a great selection wines. Bon appétit !
Guided tour of the Chateau of Cheverny.
Privately owned, this chateau has been property of the Hurault family for over 6 centuries. Charles-Antoine Hurault de Vibraye, the presen owner, lives with his family in a part of the chateau. You will probably not see them, but you will feel at home in the numerous rooms of this tiny and cozy chateau. From the outside, you will notice that the classical architecture of Cheverny inspired Hergé when he draw the chateau of Moulinsart in the famous comic book Tintin.
Guided tour of the Chateau of Chambord.
Surrounded by an extended forest, the chateau of Chambord is the greatest expression of King Francis I’s prestige and fortune. Your tour guide will show you the way in this maze of rooms. You will surely use the double spiral staircase that has amazed every single visitor since the 16th century. Did Leonardo da Vinci design it?
