Situated in the valley of the river Cher within the tributary of the Loire, Chenonceaux has a unique location in the Touraine-Chenonceaux wine-growing area. This town is bordered on its northern edge by the Forest of Amboise, providing you with camping and abundant outdoor activities. Louise Dupin de Francueil, the château owner during the French Revolution, allegedly dropped the "x" at the end of the château "Chenonceau" to differentiate it as a symbol of royalty from the village name "Chenonceaux" in the Republic. Our France road trip planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
