Château de Chenonceau

IMG_5782 IMG_5808IMG_5753 IMG_5769 IMG_5772-tile IMG_5777 IMG_5823 IMG_5779Château de Chenonceau was my favourite château of all the ones we’ve seen during our Loire Valley cycling adventure. The romantic chandeliers, chessboard floors, gardens and of course, the river running through its arches makes this château a winner. I could admire it from afar and stay bewitched by its beauty for a long time.

The story behind this château was equally intriguing. It was a château owned by several powerful women in France during the times of the monarchs. These women made the château into what it is today.
