Castles of the Loire Valley: A Journey through French History
These castles, most built or upgraded during the French Renaissance (15th-16th centuries), are nestled along the riverbanks and their tributaries. Tracing back to medieval roots, they embody significant architectural aspects. The Loire Valley, home to these remarkable monuments, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Former home of Charles VIII, who met his tragic end here aged 28 in 1498. Francis I invited Leonardo da Vinci, who also died here in 1519. Notably, the castle was involved in the conspiracy of Amboise heralding religious wars.
This iconic fortress, commissioned by Francis I, is famously described by Balzac as "a faceted diamond set in the Indre."
This medieval citadel was the main residence of King Louis XII, and later Francis I. It was the central seat of successors François II and Charles IX. After being abandoned and restored, it now features three wings in Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque styles.
Initially a hunting lodge in 1519, the castle later underwent renovations under Louis XIV. It served various roles in history, including a field hospital during the Franco-German hostility in 1870.
Notable for its high keep, Sainte-Chapelle, and the Dunois and Longueville wings.
This castle, depicted in Tintin comics as Marlinspike, has a colorful ownership history, involving King Henri II, Diane de Poitiers, and the Marquis de Vibraye.
Built to protect against the counts of Anjou, it was reconstructed in a renaissance style after Louis XI's punishment for Pierre d'Amboise's opposition to the Crown.
Implicated in financial fraud, ownership disputes, and wartime roles, it houses rooms that tell the stories of Catherine de Medici and her daughters.
Constructed over older Roman walls, this castle has hosted historical figures such as Henry II of England, Richard the Lion Heart, and Joan of Arc.
The oldest surviving stone building in France, Langeais Castle, has seen several periods of destruction and renovation.
The name Loches, derived from the ancient Castrum Locae meaning "marsh camp", was a point of interest for the English Plantagenet ancestors.
Once a residency for the Count of Anjou Plantagenet and his descendants, it was later transformed into a prison by Louis XIV and Napoleon.
Commissioned by Napoleon Bonaparte to host foreign dignitaries, it houses works from the Louvre gallery, including the Venus de Milo and Winged Victory.
The last great castle of the Loire to be built during the Renaissance, it witnessed the peace treaty between Henry II Plantagenet and Philippe Auguste.
Stay at Château de la Bourdaisière
Château de la Bourdaisière: A Historic Gem
The Château de la Bourdaisière, a historic monument, stands where a 14th century fortress once protected Tours against English invasions. It was purchased in 1482 by Louis de La Mézière, the then Mayor of Tours, and transformed into a country house between 1518 and 1522 by Philibert Babou. Through the centuries, each heir has shaped the estate through various renovations. The late 18th-century saw the partial destruction of the castle under the Duke of Choiseul's orders, with only the medieval keep and Babou manor remaining. New constructions were later added by subsequent owners.
Discovering Château de la Bourdaisière
The Château de la Bourdaisière, located southeast of Montlouis-sur-Loire in Indre-et-Loire, boasts a fifty-five hectare enclosed park. It is home to ancient trees such as cedars, redwoods, chestnuts, and oaks, and showcases a multitude of vegetables and aromatic plants, including eight hundred tomato varieties. The "Dahliacolor" contemporary garden, featuring two hundred and ten varieties of dahlias, is situated behind the Tomato Conservatory vegetable garden. An educational walkway promotes awareness of contemporary environmental and societal issues.
La Bourdaisière also functions as a charming hotel, complete with twenty-five rooms, a family cuisine restaurant, an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court, jogging path, and woodland walks.
