ChÃ¢teau de Chaumont-sur-Loire
Dominating the Loire valley in a strategic position, the chÃ¢teau was rebuilt in the late 15th and early 16th century by the Amboise family.
The property of Catherine de MÃ©dicis in 1560, it passed to her rival Diane de Poitiers.
At the end of the 19th century, the princes of Broglie luxuriously refurbished the chÃ¢teau and in 1884 had the very beautiful grounds designed by Henri DuchÃªne.
