this was a timed entrance and valuable to have the GYG tickets in hand in advance. Lots of walking - to be expected - but well laid out and lots of history provided in the printed guide - a must to have in hand. We toured the gardens and took advantage of a bench with a view to relax and take it all in. A gem not to be missed and GYG tickets really helped make it all smooth.

My whole family really enjoyed spending the afternoon at Château du Clos Lucé. My two year old daughter loved the VR recording of Davinci and Francis I as well as the kids play area and playing around with Davinci's inventions. The staff everywhere was friendly and helpful which made the day relaxed and enjoyable.

Very well organized guide booklet that led one through the castle and gardens. Fantastic!

This was an amazing chateau to visit. Much to see. We enjoyed the experience very much.

This was a worthwhile stop. No covid protocols in place if you are concerned.
