That is the Château de Chambord indeed, a very famous one. It has a fascinating history, and you can see pictures of it appears every now and them, I would guess because the special architecture. You can find the official website of the Château here

The Chateau de Chambord is probably the biggest and fanciest in the Loire Valley. Da Vinci designed the double helix staircase for Francois I so he and other men would not have to pass by their wives when they were with their mistresses.

No, they filmed it in the Dordogne. By the way, I wondered how they got my photo! I took pretty much that exact photo once!:) I walked and walked a good distance so that I would have the entire castle in my photo. I had a little cheapo camera at the time. :)

I agree. It seems like a beautiful place, but I haven't seen it in person either. I remember day-dreaming in French classes about staying in it, and what it would be like finally seeing it. I'm still waiting for the day to come. :(

I have visited the most beautiful castles of the Loire Valley in 1993 (so long ago:o ): Chambort, the biggest castle in Europe; Chenonceaux, the most romantic castle; Blois, the castle with the large stairs in the center of the town; and Cheverny, the only castle still inhabited. Last summer I returned on the Loire Valley and visited the castle of Blois again and the castle with the beautiful gardens, Villandry.:)

Here is a link to the castles of the Loire Valley:http://www.castles-france.net/chateaux-loire/


PS: @ Administrators: It would be a great idea if we had a thread in this forum about all the beautiful castles of the world, where members could post pictures and informations about the royal buildings of the present and the past.

Blois is a beautiful castle too and I enjoyed that town as well. Unfortunately, it was undergoing some renovation when I was there and I didn´t get to see much but the rooms I saw were pretty nice. Chenonceau is great too.

Thanks for all of the links. I just received my copy of CASTLES AND PALACES OF EUROPE from Amazon. Its big, heavy, and full of beautiful pictures. There are 415 pages including the glossary. A must if you're interested in castles and palaces. Very inexpensive.

That's is one very interesting site. Never seen it before. I checked some links and loved this funny picture they had of a very diverse family tree:
http://www.nobility-royalty.com/1e9eaad90.jpg

On the site in general, I went around and found something that gave me a red flag alert: there is a page asking for contributions. And I mean in the thousands of dollars. My advice is approach with caution in case anyone here gets too exited and ready to dig into your pockets. I've seen things like these before and any shinny bogus site asking for contributions in the thousands of dollars is questionable. Pictures are cute, but there is something about that site that gives me an unneasy feeling. This is the page asking for 'contributions' that gave me that red flag alert in my head: http://www.nobility-royalty.com/id18.htm

I just added two more "coffee table" books to my collection:

German Castles and Palaces by Uwe Albrecht and Palaces That Changed The World by Klaus Reichold.

Great photography and interesting history, too. Think I'll order The Royal Palaces of Spain next. Its a little costly but I want it.
