Chenonceau with lunch at La Roseraie in Chenonceau. It was just wonderful and fairly priced food. Part of a charming inn as well. I would almost make a day trip from Paris to go there again.

My personal favorite is Angers; older than most of the Loire Valley Chateaux in as much as it dates back to the 9th century under the then Foulques Nero or better known as the Black Falcon, and for being the current venue of display of thr Apocalypse Tapestries, woven in 1375 by Nicholas Bataille.

Angers is an easy 90 minute ride on the TGV from Gare Montparnasse..

One of mine too and for one reason it is not all gussied up like the others - a bit out of the main path from other castles of the Loire but if heading east or southeast it can be a convenient stop for a few hours - not a huge place and not with a huge surrounding park/gardens.
