Château de Chambord, Loire Valley

A Friday in February is the optimal time to visit a Renaissance chateau if your priority is avoiding the frenzied tourist stampede and queuing.

If, however, you don't mind being pushed around by hordes of visitors but wish your stroll in the park to take place in sunny weather, then the icy winter rain may make you want to select a more propitious moment.

Regarding the chateau itself, I don't have that much to say : While the architecture is elegant, 17th century interior decoration is just hideous.

Sub-zero temperatures indoors (well, that's what it felt like, anyways) but a lovely (heated) gift-shop.
