The history of the chateau was also very interesting as it was home to whom would have been next King of France after the revolution, but he insisted on being crowned under the King colors rather than the tricolor of the revolution. As a result Napoleon stepped up to the plate and took the prize from under his nose. In more recent history the chateau was used to hide and store much of the Lourve's art work during WWII.
Words can't describe all that we saw in the Loire Valley so we hope our photos help.
Goodbye Loire Valley, hello Dordogne here we come!
