... the apartment a bit. It didn't say in the book at the apartment whether we were supposed to or not but we thought we’d better. It doesn’t take long to sweep and tidy, clean the bathroom etc when it’s such a small place anyhow.
Once we’d done all we could we were at a loss what to do as we weren’t sure when the boys were going to get back. In the end we made a cup of tea and settled down to wile away some time on our computers. I did ...
... Then it was a quick hop down the road to our last chateau, the Chateau de Chambord. What an amazing building. For sheer full-blown architectural splendour, you can't top this. It is by far the largest, grandest and most-visited chateau in the Loire Valley.

So we left there for Orleans (pronounced oh-lee-ons). Wow. This place was a surprise. It's so lovely. And clean. And the cathedral here is off the chart. We got Orleans late-ish but went for a bit of a stroll to find dinner. That's when we stumbled across the cathedral. Normally it would be closed at that time but there was a military orchestra concert on. So for 5 euro we got to hear beautiful music in the most beautiful location. Scored!!!!
