Castle of Beauregard and the Gallery of the Renowned, Loire Valley

Castle of Beauregard is located south of Blois, and you can reach it in few minutes by car. It isn't as popular as Chambord or Chenonceau, but it definitely deserves a visit.

This castle was known  as a hunting house for the King Francis I , but Paul Ardier, treasurer of the King Louis XIII, gave him his major treasure : a collection of 327 portraits of the European history key characters.

This collection is shown in a wonderful room, with a lapis-lazuri ceiling and a floor made of 5600 earthenware tiles.

And, if that isn't enough, you will be impressed by the authentic 15th century kitchen.

The castle is surrounded by 4 hectares landscaped park with hundreds of plant varieties.

If you are still not convinced that you have to visit Beauregard castle, you can look to the below video😄
