Castle Chenonceau, the pearl of Cher

The Loire Valley has several beautiful castles, but my favorite was the Château Chenonceau. It has such charme and beauty, as it is on the river Cher with pretty gardens. It is called the castel of women, because during the centuries it was owned by outstanding ladies, maybe that is why I love it so much. Walking in the rooms you can find amazing fireplaces, paintings about the owners, huge beds with balanchin and wooden painted ceilings. Enjoy the photos!

Tours, the heart of the Loire Valley

17:31 Agnes Domany 0 Comments

It is half a year since I have posted something, I apologize for it. The reason of this was not the lack of adventures and photos, but the time. So now I am back with fresh pictures from the Loire Valley. One week ago I had the opportunity, to visit this special part of France, which is also listed in the Wold Heritage Site. Our stay during the 5 days was in Tours, so I start to present this city first.
The most interesting about Tours, that it was 2 different tows at the beginning. In the 14. Century it was united and so it is an example of a medieval double city. The Cathedral of Tours is worth a visit because of its amazing gothic style. My favorite spots were: the Place Plumereau and the half timbered houses, the Town Hall, the Loire River bank with the Pont Wilson and the St Gatien Cathedtal, where the original Cathedral was spit in two because of new street so it remained as a ruin. Here are the photos, enjoy them.
