Chateaux in Loir-et-Cher

The Loir-et-Cher is blessed with some of the most sumptuous chateaux that France has to offer.
Its proximity to Paris and mild climate made it an obvious choice for the Royal Court.
The Loir-et-Cher was also perfect hunting ground with vast forestland and waterways.

There's a chateau here to suit every taste and architectural interest from the Renaissance splendour
of Chambord and Chenonceau to the feudal Chateau de Chaumont and the more classical Chateau
de Cheverny

Quite simply chateaux heaven!
