Chateaux in Loire Valley

Jump to last reply

I am going to spend several days in the Loire Valley in a rental car to visit chateaux. I have read numerous posts and other articles on the various Chateaux, and I am having a hard time narrowing down my choices. I hope to actually visit as many as time allows, but to do it right I know I have to exclude several.

Can anyone help by denoting which chateaux, if any, you can see from the road or highway without actually paying the entrance fee and driving into a parking lot before you see the chateau. If I can see several from the road (and it is not Chenonceau or one of the others that I have on the "for sure" list), I might decide to skip that chereau and just do a "windshield tour" without getting out of the car.

Therefore, of the following, are any visible from the road?

1. Chambord
2. Villandry
3. Ambroise
4. Cheverny
5. Beauregard
6. Blois
7. Montrichard
8. Claumont
9. Any other?

While I am asking, is Chenonceau visible from the road or highway?

Moreover, other than getting there early, any other suggestions about how to budget your time so you can see as many as possible? I just don't want to speed thought the ones I really want to visit in order to go through some on the "maybe" list.

Thanks in advance.
