More about the castles….
We saw Chambord and Clemenceau. All of the places that we visited were homes – summer / winter / hunting lodge of Francis I and his wife and mistress (s?), and his heirs and their wives, mistresses et al. There is no way for me to pass to you all the convoluted relationships that make up this history of this one small place in France.
Now how to finish this off without turning you away from France all together. First I will limit myself to 6 photos of each – Amboise (those above don’t count), then Chambord with its double staircase designed by Leonardo di Vinci (6 only???) and then Clemenceau. Okay here goes (yes I cheated started off with 7 photos of Amboise – and only added 3 more of the Castle. Did I mention that I love this place?)
