The Incredible Flower Arrangements at the Chateau of Chenonceau

Despite the fact that the Chateau of Chenonceau is the most visited of all the Loire Valley chateaux, it has a feature that seems to come as a surprise to almost all first time visitors. The Chateau employs two full time professional florists, and their job is to provide flower arrangements for every room in the Chateau, every day of the year. Some of the arrangements are enormous, some are small and delicate. They are always different and they are one of the wonders of the Loire Valley. Somehow though, they don't seem to get much publicity, but they are a guaranteed way to make the people we take there go 'Wow!!' and it means that a visit at any time of year is still an outstanding experience, because even if the day outside is grey and damp, inside will be an explosion of colour and floral creativity.
