Castle of Beauregard:
On the edge of the Russy forest, a few kilometers to the south of Blois, the hunting grounds of François I was transformed into an elegant manor by Jean du Thiers, Secretary of State to Henri II. He had an elegant room built called the bell cabinet due to the three silver bells on the Thiers’ family coat-of-arms that is painted on the ceiling.
The following squire, Paul Ardier, treasurer of Spain under Louis XIII, commissioned a gallery of three hundred sixty-three portraits: fifteen kings, from Philippe VI de Valois to Louis XIII, a flock of ministers, courtiers and celebrities. This collection, of which 327 portraits are still in place, gives the room the name of "the gallery of fame". The floor is tiled with china from Delft representing an army of parading soldiers and cavalry, dressed in costumes from the Louis XIII era.
After a visit of the monument, a walk in the beautiful landscaped park and closed garden called "the Portraits" with 400 species of perennials and 100 climbing plants.
Castle of Chambord:
To understand Chambord, you first have to let yourself be won over by the exaltation and excessiveness François I, who, at the age of only twenty-five, wanted to give the world a spectacular testimony of his two passions: hunting and architecture. To take in the full measure, you need to let yourself go progressively to the discovery of a unique place built at the beginning of the Renaissance. First of all, cross a 32 kilometer long wall, penetrate a forest teeming with game and discover in its heart an architectural jewel still intact. Afterwards, let yourself be overwhelmed by its gigantism, beyond any human scale, and enjoy the surprising alchemy in the forms and structures where nothing is left to chance. Chambord is much more than a castle: it is exceptional architecture, technical prowess, a stone giant... simply the dream of the young king François.
