Chateau de Chenonceau

This beautiful castle built on the River Cher was home to five different ladies between 1499-1836; Diane De Poitiers, Catherine de Medici, Louise of Lorraine, Louise Dupin and Marguerite Pelouze. During the First World War, it served as a hospital. Although the crowds were large, we enjoyed seeing this charming and beautifully restored residence. We relished a lovely lunch on site after viewing the ...

... blended with those of Flanders and Italy. In fact, the great Italian master Leonardo da Vinci is buried in the chapel at the palace. King Francois appointed him as "first painter, engineer and king's architect" from 1516 until his death in 1519. The king also gave him the Manoir du Cloux in which to live; we visited that house this ...

What a lovely day for a cycle ride

A travel blog entry by lin.crook.999 on Aug 05, 2014

Had a lovely lie in followed by croissants with lashings of strawberry jam and several cups of tea. Today we had decided to go for a cycle ride around the area. Set off about 11am having slavered ourselves in sun tan lotion, map in hand (well I thought it was until we got to the gate and I realised it was still in the van!) grabbed another one from the reception with Andy muttering about heads being left etc! And off we went, cycled through ...

Castle Cathedral Crazy Driver

... renovated old farmhouse. But that wasn’t the most interesting thing.

What stood out was that it was located right by a nuclear power plant. I’m serious. A big huge functioning Nuclear Power Plant right in the middle of rural farmland. It felt like the Simpsons!

Secretly I was quite thrilled with this little unexpected surprise of the place (which of course isn’t mentioned or shown in any of the hotel pictures or material). ...

... antlers over 6000 years old from an ancestor of the elk which was found in the Siberian ice fields 200 years ago. The antlers are hung at the actual height of the animal! The chateau's immaculately manicured gardens (including seemingly endless pathways of beautifully raked gravel) were a sight to behold, and we both came away feeling quite wowed. We were also pleasantly surprised at the lack of people - after our experience the day before we were expecting crowds, but they did not ...

    Hotel Le Monarque is a good hotel except for two areas. Firstly the WiFi does not reach many of the rooms. Saw a few guests sitting in or near the lobby using their computers where they had access. Secondly, the bicycle storage area was not secure. It is an open area at the side of the hotel. The gates are shut at 10 pm. Also the bikes are out in the open without shelter.
