The many faces of Chateau de Blois

Louis XII wing of Chateau de Blois

We returned yesterday for a revisit to Chateau de Blois,not our original destination it has to be said but a good visit none the less.

View of Louis XII wing of Chateau de Blois from the courtyard

We had intended visiting this years International Garden Festival at Chaumont-sur-Loire but the weather was against us so thus the change of plan.


Although we have visited the city often it had been quite some time since we visited the inside of the chateau itself. It we good to be reacquainted with its many historical and architectural facets.

Monday's Loire Valley chateau - Chateau de Cheverny


If you need to shelter from inclement weather which chateau's interior is best? Chateau de Cheverny is certainly up there as one of the best appointed.
