What people are saying about Loire Valley Châteaux

Aún cuando a algunos les parecerá un lugar lejano de Paris, Chambord es un sitio esencial de Francia. Su arquitectura, jardines y la tranquilidad que se respira son insuperables. Creo que puedo sugerir, sin temor a equivocarme, que debe ser uno de al menos dos lugares a visitar en esta zona del Valle de Loire. El segundo: Blois. Con respecto al Castillo, está lleno de sorpresas arquitectónicas contiene espacios y paisajes bellísimos y pasar un rato debe ser un must do para cualquier persona que, con suficiente tiempo, visite Francia! Destacan las escaleras, los torreones, las vistas desde los jardines y desde lo alto del palacio, hay muchísimo que ver allí. Al menos un par de horas tranquilas y muchas ganas de caminar, subir, bajar, explorar. Es genial!

It was my dream and trip was great. I was very happy that the weather let us fly. The Crue was super they had a lot of job with preparing the balloon but they are very organized so everything was perfect. And in the end there was refreshments with champagne with sunshine in the back so it was AMAZING!!!

Here is a very well maintained Castle, which will satisfy you both inside, and in its large and beautiful gardens intended to be admired as well as to stroll quietly. Note the existence of large parking lots outside and toilets whose cleanliness must be emphasized and which are both free.

We arrived at 9:30 in the morning as the crowds are smaller then. Plan for at least two hours to se everything. The skip the line did save us a stop at the ticket line and was worth it. Be sure to pay for your parking before you leave the grounds and head for the parking lot.

YOU RECEIVE A SELF GUIDE WHEN YOU ENTER, SO ENTRY TICKETS ONLY WERE THE SMART WAY TO GO. YOU CAN GO AT YOUR OWN PACE
