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.

It is by far the largest, grandest and most-visited chateau in the Loire Valley. Begun in 1519 as a weekend hunting lodge for King Francois 1, it quickly snowballed into one of the most ambitious and expensive architectural projects ever attempted by a French monarch.
