Looking for a castle to call your own? We've got the next best thing. Visit the magical Château de Chenonceau, which has stood proudly in this spot in one form or another since the 12th century! Access the Royal Gardens, Dômes Gallery, Carriage Gallery, and of course Chenonceau Castle itself.

The history of Château de Chenonceau features an almost uninterrupted succession of women at the helm. They built, embellished, protected, restored and saved parts, until it became what it is today.

What you'll see as you walk around was mostly built between 1513 and 1517, by Thomas Bohier and his equally passionate wife, Catherine Briçonnet. The site of the first château dates back even further, to the 12th and 13th centuries. Only the spooky dungeon remains of the original construction. Dare you sneak a peek?

You'll also come across an extraordinary collection of furniture, tapestries and paintings by some of the greatest European painters of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.

The varied artwork reflects the history of the château, and the leading role played by women in its history. Just imagine what it was like back in the day, strolling through the gorgeous gardens!

Worked great easy to use.you have to purchase ahead anyway since you need a reservation. Unfortunately very busy with 2 bus tours. They had a reservation time why did they let so many in at once?
