Château de Chenonceau

The Château de Chenonceau is undeniably the most beautiful of all the castles I visited. It’s something of a dream seeing this castle sitting on the river Cher in all its French romantic splendour. I canoed down the river at sunset which provided unbeatable views over the castle and floating underneath the arches was by far the most serene moment of my time in the Loire Valley.  I was too scared to bring my camera and phone along for fear of them falling in the water but fortunately the moment will be etched into my memory for a long time. I would highly recommend waiting at the gates at the opening time to be the first one in here to beat the swarms of tourists, that way you’ll have the chequered and marble grande salle all to yourself and get some iconic shots of the castle without people in the way. Make sure to spend a whole day here basking in the glorious rose gardens and later picnicking along the water.
