We started the day with a visit to the Château d'Ambois, then a stop at Château du Clos Luce the last residence of Leonardo da Vinci and now a museum of his life and inventions. 

Château de Chenonceau

From Ambois, it was just 20 km to our campground in Chenonceaux. After arriving at the campground, we took a boat tour up the river to Château de Chenonceau. The boat actually passes under the Château and is a great way to see a chateau that is built across a river!
