Next up for your consideration is Chateau Villandry. While processing this batch I realized I had only one shot with the actual building in the background. The main attraction here was definitely the gardens.
This was the first chateau we biked to, a whopping 23 kilometers west of Tours. Ok, so not too far, but it was a fun trip all the same.
Chateau Chenonceau. This was actually the last chateau we went to visit on our trip, and it was by far the most crowded. Not entirely pleasant. Truly unique, however, as it spans the entire width of the river! Very cool.
Heather and I decided to take a train part way there and bike the last seven kilometers along the river banks. The grounds and the scenery along the way were absolutely beautiful.
