Full description
The Chambord Castle was created by François I, but not as a permanent residence, as the king only ever stayed for a few weeks. Chambord is well known because of its unique and sumptuous architecture, which is imbued with the spirit of Leonardo da Vinci. The castle is located in a large park of 5,000 hectares. The encircling walls are about 30 kilometers long. Chambord Castle is the most impressive castle in the Loire Valley. It has about 400 rooms, more than 80 staircases, 365 fireplaces, and an exceptional number of towers, high ceilings, pointed domes, and graceful pinnacles. You will be able to discover, among other sights, the renowned double-helix staircase: 2 staircases going around on the same side without crossing. To learn more about the Castle's history and architecture, you will have the possibility to watch a 20-minute film translated into 4 languages (English, Italian, Spanish and German). A free visitor guide is also available in 14 languages: French, English, German, Dutch, Polish, Hungarian, Romanian, Italian, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

    Aún cuando a algunos les parecerá un lugar lejano de Paris, Chambord es un sitio esencial de Francia. Su arquitectura, jardines y la tranquilidad que se respira son insuperables. Creo que puedo sugerir, sin temor a equivocarme, que debe ser uno de al menos dos lugares a visitar en esta zona del Valle de Loire. El segundo: Blois. Con respecto al Castillo, está lleno de sorpresas arquitectónicas contiene espacios y paisajes bellísimos y pasar un rato debe ser un must do para cualquier persona que, con suficiente tiempo, visite Francia! Destacan las escaleras, los torreones, las vistas desde los jardines y desde lo alto del palacio, hay muchísimo que ver allí. Al menos un par de horas tranquilas y muchas ganas de caminar, subir, bajar, explorar. Es genial!

    We arrived at 9:30 in the morning as the crowds are smaller then. Plan for at least two hours to se everything. The skip the line did save us a stop at the ticket line and was worth it. Be sure to pay for your parking before you leave the grounds and head for the parking lot.

    Easy and convenient to have the skip the line Tickets to enter the castle. Really amazing architecture, worth it to look inside and wander along the corridors and go up and down the spiral and the double helix staircases. The gardens are accessible to the public without buying tickets. There is one cafeteria inside the walls but at least 4-5 outside. We cycled the grounds, it's huge!
