Chenonceau area - Here they walked...
Decline of the Valley of Loire coincides on time with a decline of Valua dynasty. Royal departures become more and more rare, festivals and entertainments in the residences created specially for these purposes stop. Kings start to prefer more extensive, monumental palaces. So the star of Fontainbleau began to ascend. Castles of Loire quit the stage.
Coming back from Italy, Charles VIII used waters of Loire to transport on the Italian vessel military extraction - Gobelin tapestries, draperies from a leather, a velvet, Damask fabrics, hand-written books, pictures and a sculpture. The king brought to France also artists, handicraftsmen, cabinetmakers, and set dressers, the manufacturer of incubators and even the expert on cultivation of parrots.
