This is part of an ongoing set of Chateau Chenonceau which I took on my last visit to France in Sept 2011.
This fairytale chateau Chenonceau was built on the River Cher and owes a lot of its charm to women.
Built in 1513AD by Katherine Briconnet , then made more attractive by Diane de Poitiers, then made famous by Catherine de Medici.
