Château de Chambord

by - 10:39

This place has been on my list for quite some time, also because it is my husband's favourite château fort in France. Two hours drive and you're facing one of the most recognisable castles in the world. We have checked-in to our room at Le Relais de Chambord, which is the only hotel on the property! and were immediately off to explore. There's so much to do and see and makes for a fabulous family trip as much as for a romantic getaway. 

Chambord is the largest chateau in the Loire Valley (there's over three hundred castles in this wast area of France),  and people usually visit a few when they're traveling around here. We have taken this weekend to relax and really only stayed in Chambord but there was plenty of things to do.

You can rent bikes, or mini electric cars that will take you around the property. We have rented a small boat I would definitely recommend doing and saw the castle from that perspective. You can walk! loooong walks around the park we absolutely loved doing with Livia. There's that place to run around we were longing for especially after the lockdown in Paris due to Covid. You can book a ticket to see the horse show or ride one if you'd like. You get my point, there's plenty of activities to do and that's also why we fell in love with this place so much! 

Nearly all of the rooms at Le Relais de Chambord are facing the chateau which is pretty magical! Our suite had a little terrace and we took our morning coffee there admiring the view, speechless! 

You absolutely have to try their restaurant la table du Grand Saint-Michel by chef Alexandre Trazeres. The food was worth a michelin star! and I am still dreaming of their pastries. We also had dinner one night at the Bar restaurant and loved it too! If you're lucky with the weather, having your dinner or lunch with the view of the chateau is truly magnificent.

We truly loved this getaway and if you're looking for a place to visit in France, Chateau de Chambord will most certainly not disappoint. xxx
