France, Loire Valley - Château de Chenonceau V

The chateau is distinctive in part for being constructed in the middle of the Cher River. 
The river, placid as a lake on fair days, reflects the castle’s white stone and dainty turrets like a noble lady’s looking glass. 
Which is appropriate, for Chenonceau is popularly known as “the ladies’ chateau.” 
Through the centuries, six strong and memorable women built Chenonceau, 
maintained it, expanded it, loved it, fought over it, and made its place in history.
