Chenonceaux is a commune in the Indre-et-Loire department in central France.
It is situated in the valley of the River Cher, a tributary of the Loire, about 26 km east of Tours and on the right bank of the Cher.
The population of permanent residents hovers about 400, as of 2012, but there is a large influx of tourists during the summer months, because the village adjoins the former royal Château de Chenonceau, one of the most popular tourist destinations in France. The chateau is distinctive in being built across the river. The village is also situated in Touraine-Chenonceaux wine-growing area, and bordered on its northern edge by the Forest of Amboise.
