- Chenonceau Chateau built on the River Cher is the one of the Loire Valley's most beautiful chateaux. Known as the 'Chateau des Dames', the ladies' castle, it owes a large part of its charm to women.
- Built in 1513 by Katherine Briçonnet, embellished by Diane de Poitiers & Catherine de Médicis, and saved from the French Revolution by Mrs Dupin.
- Chenonceau is not only remarkable for its architecture and history but also for the fine quality of its collections.
