Chambord is the emblem of the French Renaissance through Europe and the world. The Domain of Chambord is made up of the château, a village, farms and a wooded area. The domain of Chambord is completely enclosed within a wall, all 5,440 hectares of it. That’s the equivalent of the city of Paris! It is the largest enclosed forest in Europe. The entire site has been the property of the state since 1930; when the public estate was created, article 230 of the law dated 23 February 2005 stated that the possessions making up the domain were given over to it without restriction or exceptions.

The chateau is wonderful and beautiful. However I felt that too many parts were closed for maintenance and the place looks disorganised. Most of the displays are only explained in French and those with English description are in the smallest font possible. I somehow felt...More

This chateau is worth a visit if only for the sheer magnificence of the place. The structure itself is so huge it is hard to see it all in one trip. The surrounding gardens and forest are equally stunning. Take it all in from the...More

Save this one for last - only because the rest will not even begin to compare. We went to 3 other Châteaus before we arrived, and, we all agreed this was the best. If you only have time to visit 1, come here. You need...More

Exceptional architecture with two winding staircases where those going up never see those coming down. Very convenient even in our times.
