The château of Chenonceau contains an unequalled collection of renaissance furniture, and paintings. You will also be able to visit the very nice gardens of the château.
 
In the afternoon, on the way back, visit a local winery where you will be able to meet the winemaker and tour the cellar. This will start your education about the Loire Valley wines. The Loire Valley produces red wines, white wines, rosés and sparkling wines. Before the end of the day, you will have tasted many of the Loire Valley varietals.
 
On the way back, drive through the countryside and forests over to the banks of the Loire river, going through small picturesque villages. There will be plenty of chances to buy the wines you tasted. The shipping and customs paper can be organised for you if you wish.
