Guided walking tour of Chenonceau chateau

Guided walking tour of Chenonceau chateau

This is a site with many stories: I'll talk about a wide range of subjects including womens history, mysterious graffiti, technological and scientific changes, peoples beliefs, dietary changes, garden history and what drove the economy when the chateau was built. Some powerful female characters have occupied this place - some of them you will have heard of, some will be new names for you. but all are fascinating. I'll cover a bit of modern history too - what happened here during the two World Wars. I'm very happy to tailor the presentation to clients interests. If there is interest I can cover medicine, engineering, textile manufacturing, transport and more, all of which can be demonstrated by elements of this magnificent site. But the lives and loves of the women who lived here will not be forgotten in all of this. Nor will the beautiful objects inside. My background is not art history, but collections care and the behind the scenes management of historic sites.

Private tour of Loire Valley most visited castles
"We had a private tour of two Châteaux: Chambord and Chenonceau with lunch in between. That was interesting since it was in the caves of a local winery and the lights went out after we sat down. A little daylight and many candles rectified the situation although it was still a bit dim. The owners were very nice, however. The actual tours were very good; our guide Nicolas (not quite sure of the spelling), was marvelous. He is personable and extremely knowledgeable about the chateaux and the surrounding area. We highly recommend him."..."

"Great, but exhausting tour! There was a total group of 8 in our van and we were driven by Patrick, who was wonderful.

We were told to grab food at the second chateau."..."
