The Loire Valley is replete with bold medieval castles. Historically, the Chateau Sully-sur-Loire defended a strategic river crossing. In Amboise, the Amboise Chateau (Chateau d’Amboise) was home to Francois the First, while the manor house of the Amboise Chateau, Chateau du Clos Luce, was once the brief home of none other than Leonardo da Vinci, who spent his last remaining years here. Da Vinci had a hand in creating Francois the First’s hunting lodge, the enormous Chateau de Chambord.
