The gardens at France’s amazing Chateau de Chenonceau are nearly as impressive as the old manor home, which spans the Cher River.

    Beautiful photos!

    I’ve never been to this region of France but after seeing this I must add it to my bucket list!

    Love the photo of the fireplace, looks so regal!

    Wandering through the gardens must be lovely too right?

      The gardens are really nice at several of the chateau. I highly recommend a trip to hop from one to another. The Loire Valley is fantastic.

    Your pictures make me want to live there! I love the chessboard tiles and that garden home.

      It really is a fantastic place to visit. And with a whole bunch of other chateau in the area, you can do so by bicycle. There were a whole bunch of people doing that when my father and I visited.

    A few of the castles I visited in Europe were disappointing, but this one looks beautiful.

      The manor homes in the Loire Valley really are beautiful. Some are really big, but some, like this one at Chenonceau, aren’t exactly huge. It’s just unique in how it spans the river, which makes it so beautiful of a place.
