I visited many stunning castles during my recent holiday in the Loire Valley. Guess what these are called in the comments and if you’re the first to give all the right answers, you’ll win a month of free French podcasts courtesy of frenchpod101.com. Go!
Castle 1 is mainly known for its incredible vegetable garden.
Castle 2 was the home of one of Napoléon’s ministers, whose nickname was “the limping devil”.
During the Second World War, one end of Castle 3 was in the free zone and the other in the occupied zone.
Castle 4 is one of the earliest French Renaissance castles.
Castle 5 was the home of Agnès Sorel, the very first official royal mistress.
