Château de Chenonceau

Today we have been with our guests, Elizabeth's sister Mary and her husband Ernie, to the Château de Chenonceau which is modestly described by Wikipedia as "a manor house near the small village of Chenonceaux". It is probably one of the more noted of the Loire valley châteaux and is regularly featured on the front of guides to the Loire. For full information follow our link above.

We managed to dodge the showers and here are a few of our external pictures.


Despite heavy showers there was not much water in the river Cher...


We did notice this young french chap who obviously has high aspirations in the field of photography...


Say "Fromage!"...

That 'manor house' looks well worth a visit and the gardens are beautiful. I am getting a little fed up with these showers, and hail today! We still have the wood burner on, it is really chilly in the house with no sun. Diane

Gosh, that takes me back to my only visit as a teenager in the summer before I started university. Thanks for the memories. :-)

I was pointed towards your blog by Jean and am enjoying it.
