Chenonceau

By Haleigh In Non classé

I escaped to the Loire for a couple days, lived the good life in the sun, and played in the gardens of the region’s beautiful chateaux. Among them I visited Chenonceau, this fairytale castle built over the river. It was magic.

  37. I love Chenonceau! We were in the Loire Valley exactly a year ago for our 5th wedding anniversary. We stayed in Amboise and did some delicious wine tasting in the Vouvray region.
