Chinon, history and wine - holiday lettings in France
Starting from a holiday home in central France, you have ample opportunity to experience this city that is listed on UNESCO's World Heritage List. Chinon has been known as a city of wine on the river Vienne. Henry II, King of England, built the Château de Chinon castle in 1154 and in 1205 the castle became one of the royal estates. The castle was also Henrys II's absolute favourite homes. In 1418, Charles VII sought refuge in France in the area during the Hundred Years War. After the war, Charles VII often visited the city. The famous Jeanne d'Arc also visited the city back in 1429. The castle itself, however, has been partially restored and is the area's most important historical attraction. Alone that such great historical personalities have walked around the area gives the place a very special character and claim to fame.
