The rain had mostly stopped by the time we arrived in Chartres. We visited the cathedral and ate lunch at a local sandwich place. Both were very nice.
We then drove to Amboise to visit Chateau Du Clos Luce – Parc Leonardo Da Vinci. This is the house where Da Vinci died after living here for the last few years of his life. I really like the house, and the grounds and garden are beautiful.
Next stop – Château de Chenonceau. This beautiful Loire Valley castle is built over a river.
We drove back to Amboise to walk around the castle here.
