No need to head to the Loire Valley to see magnificent homes: There are plenty of historic châteaux within an hour of Paris, by car, train, or metro that can be easily explored in a single, history-filled day. Many of these properties are little-known gems, while others contain world-class museums or are located in the midst of gorgeous gardens and untamed forests. Whatever your interests, you'll find a world of majesty, history, and serenity just a short day trip away from Paris.
