Today was Tom's birthday and also our last day in the Loire Valley before heading back into Paris. Ivan only had a few days and it was great to spend time with him before he heads back to the Pyrenee's where he is currently living close to the Spanish border.
For our last visit we chose the Chateau du Chambord. The most fabulous of chateaus in the Loire Valley. And we were not disappointed. Being a Monday morning, it was quiet and there were not a lot of tourists. We parked near the entrance and enjoyed a three hour visit with audio guide. The palace is massive with a unique collection of fairytale towers.
