Touring Tour

A travel blog entry by lcmckay on Oct 18, 2014

Today we said good bye to our French hosts and head to Tour for the night. I really wanted to spent at least one night here as I had built myself up to visiting while back home and I'm so glad we did. We arrived around lunch time and spent the afternoon wandering the streets and shopping, it is a beautiful town just like most in central France. I spend far too much shopping I think I am all shopped out now my bag ...

... King Francois fell in love with one of the paintings Leonardo had brought: The Mona Lisa. Francois gave Leonardo a nice house which was Francois' boyhood home! That house is the very house that is known a Clos Lucé! People also say that Francois looked up to da Vince a lot. The French king even called him "Father" and many known paintings show da Vince on his deathbed, with Francois holding his hand! You probably know many of ...

... again so we were lucky to get some riding in. That night the owners made us, and the other guests dinner. It was nice to again have a home cooked meal with some local wine. Unfortunately Liam must have picked up a bug that day which meant he was quite sick all night :(. We were all up for the majority of the night which meant we were very tired for our travel day to Paris. The joys of travel! He is better now and a lot better at washing his hands! Onto ...

... in WW2. Beautifully furnished, with a nursery full of toys and the birthing room with cot etc. This chateau is the model for Tintin's adventures with Captain Haddock! We had thought there was to be some wine tasting, but this was an alternative to seeing the chateau, so we missed the wine. On to Chambord, the Loire's largest and most visited chateau. Truly vast, 4 wings modelled on Maltese Cross, mostly unfurnished and with Da Vinci's double helix staircase in ...

Drove across more pretty county, more corn, sunflowers and grapes. Arrived at Tours. Booked our chateaux tour for tomorrow. Then went to find a campsite and have lunch. Set off for Amboise, where we went to Clos Lucé, a small chateau/country house built in 1590. It was given in 1516 by King Francis 1st to Leonardo Da Vinci. The latter spent his last 4 years there and died in 1519. ...
