Chateau du Lude Loire
Castle of history
Activity for the family
Chateau du Rivau Loire
Chateau Amboise Loire
A place of residence for French kings from the 15th to the 19th centuries, its destiny is inextricably linked to the history of France. Numerous literary figures and artists were invited here, like Leonardo da Vinci whose tomb is preserved at the château.
This royal château is thus the expression of French-style luxury.
From its balconies, its roofs and its terraced gardens, visitors can take in the Loire landscape and delight in what the kings enjoyed.
Clos Luce Da Vinci – Loire.
Fascinating and well worth a visit, one of our favorites – allow a full day or as much time as you can.
