Discover Chenonceau and create your floral composition


You will discover a French renaissance masterpiece, refined and elegant with an admirable collection of paintings, tapestries, furniture and the beautiful flower compositions created by a Master Craftsman of France.
Built in the early 16th c, it has been embellished and protected by a succession of women from that time.

Through this visit, let me tell you thousands of anecdotes about Catherina da Medici, king Henri II mistress and how the royal court lived back at that time.

Before or after the tour you will meet the floral designer of the castle, Master Craftsman of France. We will be with him during 1 hour 30 min. On the program demonstration and creation of compositions from flowers cultivated specially in the flowers garden of the castle. You will be able to take home your composition.

I can customize this tour upon request
