DAY 2


BREAKFAST AT THE HOTEL
GUIDED TOUR OF THE ROYAL CASTLE OF BLOIS 09H30

Proudly set up on its promontory, the castle offers a panorama of French architecture. Each facade evokes the passage of its occupants: Louis XII, François I or Gaston d'Orléans, each imposing the style of the time. As one of the first castles to be classified as a historical monument, it has been restored several times since the 19th century. 

LUNCH IN A RESTAURANT 12:30 PM


GUIDED TOUR OF THE CHÂTEAU DE CHAMBORD 15H00
The Loire Valley, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offers us a dream and exceptional stay. The Chambord national estate fits perfectly into this unique setting, both in terms of its incredible architecture and its sheer size. François I realized his dream of greatness by initiating the construction of this masterpiece in the heart of a forest estate enclosed by a 32 km wall. Its symbol, the salamander, adorns the coffered vaults of this immense palace. Leonardo da Vinci's shadow hangs over the central body of the castle, through its famous double-revolution staircase.
