The chateau, of Renaissance style, was built according to the plan of the fortified castles of the Middle Ages, as a donjon formed by its four big towers, directed in cardinal points, before being completed by a surrounding wall.

It is FRANÇOIS Ier, 1494-1547, king builder, which launched in 1519 the construction of the château de Chambord, which ended in 1690 under the reign of king of France Louis XIV, 1638-1715. This castle was built in place of a ancient fortress of the Comtes de Blois.

The château de Chambord, the vastest of châteaux de la Loire, is in a 5433 hectares park which extends over the municipalities of Saint-Dyé-sur-Loire, Muides-sur-Loire, Thoury, Maslives, Neuvy, Tour-en-Sologne, Huisseau-sur-Cosson. The castle and its park were intended for the hunting. The castle is situated on a curve of river Cosson, small tributary of Beuvron, tributary of the Loire.
