    ... He painted for them for years. Suddenly, the French king at the time, King Francois I decided to take over Italy.

    ... of the castle is built on a bridge spanning the Cher River. The 60 metre long Grande Gallerie, over the river, was used as a military hospital in WW1. Beautifully furnished. Interesting collection of full sized wax figures of the gentry at the time, housed in the stables. After lunch, on to Cheverny. Much smaller, rectangular house set in small park, really only a country house rather than a chateau. Built in 1625. Priceless art , including the Mona Lisa, were ...

The latter spent his last 4 years there and died in 1519. ...

Realistically, we only have time to visit 1 Chateau / day of travel and days when we travel 60km or more, there is no time to visit a site before ...

    ... as I would suspect, throughout much of France, a sandwich shop is never just a sandwich shop - its a great sandwich shop, a pastry shop and a mini cafe/bar rolled into one.

    After lunch we walked up the hill to visit Chateau du Clos-Luce. It was the home for Leonardo da Vinci. He came here in 1516 to accept a position at the request of Francois I. He died here in 1519 and is buried in the chapel on ...
