the largest enclosed forest park in Europe
Chambord is the largest of the Loire Valley castles. Around the imposing central castle, there are many architectural features in the park, all listed as historical monuments. But beyond all that has already been written about the majesty of the place, about the magnificence of the castle, we can focus on the exceptional character of the forest that surrounds the castle.
Chambord is quite simply the largest enclosed forest park in Europe (about 50 km² surrounded by a 32 km long wall). An emblem of the French Renaissance throughout the world, the castle cannot be dissociated from its natural environment. The Domaine de Chambord is home to an exceptional fauna of which deer and wild boar are the emblematic species. There is a very rich bird population: 150 species.
The Domaine de Prin pursues this same quest for harmony: to associate the refined architecture and art of Man with flamboyant and generous Nature.
