Visiting the Chateau of Chenonceau

900 000 visitors a year can't be wrong -- Chenonceau is the most popular of all the Touraine Loire Valley Chateau. That sounds like a lot of visitors, but compare it to the Palace of Versailles, which gets between 6 and 7 million visitors a year, and you will quickly realise that Chenonceau is rarely so crowded as to be unpleasant. The picture below was taken on a lovely July day this year, and you can see that there is hardly anyone in the garden at all (and we promise we didn't photoshop the image!)
