Domaine National De Chambord - Review
One of the most exquisite chateaux of the present day is the Domaine National De Chambord in France, where the exceptional French Renaissance architecture blends impeccably with the traditional French medieval forms. The monument that holds such beauty even today was constructed over a period of seven years from 1519-1547. Experience the life of the fairy tales when you visit this place, as till date it has been maintained in some parts in its original form. The damage that the French revolution did to the place was severe, yet this place is as charming as the dream of young girls.

Domaine National De Chambord, Chambord Reviews
The entire experience here was refreshingly low-stress - we didn't feel squeezed into tiny spaces with crowds like we did at some other chateaus. The grounds are huge and great for a picnic with a view (you can get great views of the outside for free) - but entry is well worth it for the views up closer and for exploring the interior and roof terrace. This was my favorite interior of any chateau - so much to explore and without feeling squished in small spaces. Most rooms had multiple entrances/exits, so we could explore freely. It was a lot of fun, and the place is so beautiful. This was my favorite chateau experience!
It's a very big castle, but the inside of the castle is mostly empty space. The architecture and gardens are visually impressive and the paintings and sculpture are good but it is most a tourist destination. The food onsite is delicious and there is a building just around to the right from the ticket shop that sells delicious chestnut paste, jams biscuits, clothing and liqueur. I personally found this part more interesting than the main building. If you want to spend a lot of time here you can hire a golf cart or a bike to travel around the castle gardens which extends several kilometres away from the entrance.
One of the best castle of the area. Fair price, free for students in Europe. They rebuilt the former garden with the original French style which gives a fantastic view from the top. As you can picnic any place on the grass, you 'll have a beautiful lunch with a wonderful background. Highly recommend you have picnic there. You 'll need a couple of hours to go around the castle and garden.
An amazing and large Chateau in the Loire Valley. It’s free to enter the park/grounds of the Chateau and you can see the full glory of the building and estate without having to enter. For €11 you can enter the house and royal gardens, although we did not do this as we had our dogs with us. Good day out, but not necessarily the most spectacular of the Château in the Loire.
The Chateau was worth a visit, interesting history and elegant gardens. Keep an eye out for the graffiti on the castle walls going back to the revolution. Impressive horse and bird show with multi talented young people with great horsemanship, comedy, acting and fighting skills. A great day out. Bring along ID to prove under 25 in European union. Food was expensive and service was unimpressive so recommend bringing a picnic.
