Château di Chambord

Castle Châteaux of the Loire Valley, France

In the middle of the nature stands the Château di Chambord

Built in the heart of a vast forest full of game, Chambord was not designed to be a permanent residence but simply a hunting lodge. Francesco I loved spending the days there to devote himself to the pleasure of hunting, at the time a privilege reserved for nobility. He stayed only for short periods in the castle, leaving it completely empty after each passage and, ultimately, the castle was never finished ... Over the centuries, other characters and kings of France, including the famous Sun King (Louis XIV) and the castle has been continuously transformed and embellished.
