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?
