Le château de Chenonceau

A Renaissance masterpiece, the Château de Chenonceau is considered one of the most stunning chateaux of the Loire. Throughout history, the spectacularly beautiful Château de Chenonceau has been protected, embellished and restored by women with an incredible destiny. Katherine Briconnet, Diane de Poitiers, Catherine de Médicis, Louise Dupin and Simonne Menier, the amazing ensemble that led to the chateau, whose beauty is reflected in the waters of the Cher, being named the Château des Dames. Katherine Briçonnet, celebrated for being the chateau’s architect, wrote: “If it works, I’ll be remembered”, meaning “If I succeed at building Chenonceau, I will be remembered.” A stunning success.
