Chateau of Chenonceau

Chateau of Chenonceau


Chenonceau Chateau is an exceptional site not only because of its original design, the richness of its collections, its furniture and its decorations, but also because of its destiny, since it was loved, administrated and protected by women, who were all extraordinary and who, for the most part have marked history.

Chenonceau Chateau has an exceptional museum collection of the Old Masters’ paintings and a rare selection of Flanders Tapestries from the 16th century.


The chateau gardens are renowned and maintained to the highest standard. The recent creation of a maze has been built to the exact plans of the gardens of XVI century.


The yard of the XVI th century farm, recently restored, will give you the feeling of being part of a historical film set up before entering the Jardin des Fleurs where the flowers that decorate all of the chateau’s rooms are raised.


Come and visit the park of the château around the labyrinth. Their is a special play area for small children, free of charge, which is open from April to October. This outdoor play area, equipped with games, located at the entrance to the courtyard of the Farm, is reserved for smaller children.
