Dominating majestically the Loire River, the Château de Chaumont-sur-Loire was built in the 15th and 16th centuries. It used to belong to Catherine de Medici and then to her rival Diane de Poitiers. Open to visitors, its apartments contain some magnificent tapestries and rooms like Catherine de Medici's and Diane de Poitiers' bedrooms, the council room and the library.
From the château terrace, the panoramic view of the Loire Valley is magnificent.
An event not to be missed: the International Garden Festival, which takes place in the château park from June to October every year and brings together landscapists from all over the world. This very creative and colourful event is a showcase for fantastic plant-based compositions and works around a given topic. A delight for the eyes and the nose!
