a magnificent chateau, also to visit with guide. several movies where shot here, very imposing and lovely park. in spring it is more quiet. it can be really touristic crowded.
i would say a sunny day of may is perfect...see the famous stairs inside...

Chambord is the largest château in the Loire Valley and was built as a hunting lodge (and never finished). The royalty seemed to do a lot of hunting. A very impressive structure but I wouldn't want to pay for the upkeep.

Largest chateau in the Loire Valley, with distinct and fascinating French Renaissance architecture. It's beautiful from the outside and intriguing inside. The double-helix staircase inside is one of this castle's many charms. Although Chenonceau is a better overall package, if I'm judging on the castle building alone, Chambord is my favorite.
This place looks like something out of Disney, and it almost is - Disney used Chambord as the creative basis for designing the Beast's castle in the Beauty and the Beast animated movie.
