The château de Chambord is world-famous. Known as "the greatest château in Loire valley" with 426 rooms and 282 fireplaces !

Our advice : if an english-speaking guide is available when you arrive, do not hesitate to ask for a guided tour. Chambord is a real maze !

Useful leaflet with maps (for free) at the entrance in every language.

Your budget : the parking is not free (4 euros for a car). Do not forget to pay before leaving and don't loose your ticket, if you want to avoid stress.
