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.

Amazing building and grounds and that is the reason to go. There is very little furniture in the building but the building is a wonder as are the grounds. The gift shop and resturant are ok and there is free parking.

I wonder what it would have been like of the other half had been completed. As it stands today, with Nazi bullet holes in the outer walls, it's very impressive and very strange at the same time. Huge rooms with high ceilings that are hard...More

We travelled to Chateau de Chambord as part of our Trafalgar Tours. What a magnificent building! Mouth dropping! Seriously... you wonder how these buildings were made so long ago! Worth the trip.

Chambord is amazing for its architecture and the famous stair (conceived by Leonardo da Vinci) - what I like most was this stair, and the appartments of François 1er, as well a the gallery on the roof, as otherwise it seems so empty and the...More

I regard myself as a château sceptic, but I was pleased to have made this visit. The imagination of the design is so unusual, this is not a 'box' of a building. I also admired the skills of the artisans in realising the ambition. Rent...More

You will not believe the size of this beautiful Château. The grounds are breathtaking with the manicured gardens and beautiful flowers. This is also an animal refuge. We saw some sheep grazing. The circular staircase was designed by Leonardo da Vinci. I made it up...More
