Chateau de Chenonceau on the River CherAlong a most beautiful path way you first come across an emerald laden canopied moat, where you can imagine the gallantry of renaissance horse riding.
To your left, as you draw nearer to the chateau, you pass the Italian maze created by Catherine de Medici, with it's arbor filled with over 2000 yews. Then finally your breath is taken away with the first sight of the chateau.
This was the home to 6 leading women of France during between the 15th and 20th centuries.
