WE TAKE YOU TO CHAMBORD & AROUND
Our tailor-made luxury holidays in the Loire Valley take you to a must see place. East of Blois, welcome to the biggest chateau from Renaissance time.
Jewel of the French Renaissance which embodied first François the 1st’s power then Louis XIV’s, the château de Chambord never stopped fascinating.

A visit with an expert guide will deliver many anecdotes and historical facts that will make your visit even more incredible as you explore the castle architecture, a true witness to the art of the Renaissance, by walking through the monument in areas usually closed to the public such as the framework or the mezzanines.
The forest surrounding the chateau is amazing. The estate covers 5440 ha and is the largest enclosed forest park in Europe. Fauna and flora are preserved and big game is the king of the area.
