Castle Hopping

If you ever find yourself wanting to see multiple castles in one weekend, or even one day, then go to Loire Valley. I was there for just under 36 hours and was able to visit and tour three castles all from around the 15th and 16th centuries. I visited the cozy Château d’Amboise, ultra-feminine Château Chenonceau, and the grand hunting lodge Château Chambord.

Each were very French in their style, but all had slightly different grounds surrounding them. Amboise was raised above the small town surrounding it with a small garden. Chenonceau had the typical long, gravel driveway leading to the front of the château and was surrounded by beautiful flower filled gardens and forestry — not pictured: hedge maze and small petting zoo. Chambord, which was used to host royalty and their guests for hunting, was surrounded by miles of forestry and a small river.

If you aren’t tempted to visit them yet then take a look at some of my snaps from the weekend and hopefully you will be persuaded.
Exploring castles and gardens all day long? What more could a girl ask for?
