Visiting Chambord means diving into a unique and fairy-tale atmosphere. From its Renaissance architecture, inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci, to its breath-taking views from the terraces to the furnished 18th century apartments, you can go through five centuries of history in just a few hours.
Since June 2019, a new setting for the itinerant court has been presented in the chateau. Redevelopment was entrusted to the internationally renowned decorator and scenographer Jacques Garcia, who was tasked with recreating the atmosphere prevailing within the chateau on the arrival of the king. The restoration of François I’s mobile (bed, tables, sideboard, folding stools) and textile (velvet, satin, linen…) decorations during his last visit to Chambord in 1545 and the restoration of the King’s room bring about a spectacular, concrete and sensitive transformation of the visitor experience.
On the first floor, the atmosphere of the theater set up by Louis XIV for Molière’s troupe on the occasion of the world premiere in 1670 of Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme has been recreated.
