Loire Valley, France

We took a trip to the Loire Valley where we visited the Chateau de Chenonceau. The château was built on the site of an old mill on the River Cher, sometime before its first mention in writing in the 11th century. It was designed by the French Renaissance architect Philibert de l'Orme.
We visited the Le Chateau du Clos Luce - Parc Leonardo da Vinci, this place is famous for being the official residence of Leonardo da Vinci between 1516 and 1519.
After exploring we were ready for some champagne tasting.
We arrived back to Paris just in time to enjoy Oysters on the half shell, fillet of seabass, medallions of lamb, the finest French vino and to finish it all off...Crepes Flambé. The restaurant we went to was called Brasserie Lorraine and it was phenomenal.
