    ... 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 ...

    ... 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 ...

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

    Day trip to see castles in France!! This was the only organized tour we took on the trip. We met our guides and bus at an office close to the Louve and headed Southwest of Paris to the Loire Valley. There are hundreds of chateaus in the valley and we were going to tour 3 of the most famous and accessible. The first chateau we arrived at was Chambord. It is the biggest chateaux we toured and was originally a hunting ...
