Chateau.....

Seems it is:
1) Chateau Villandry- Route Info/Speedbump
2) Chateau d' Amboise- Route Info, RB or Detour
3) Chateau Cheverny- Route Info, RB or Detour
4) Chateau Chenohceau- Pit Stop

That looks right (with the cave/wine cellar thrown in the middle somewhere and the plowfield either in the middle or starting the next leg). It would be nice to get more details from the lady blogger, but you take what you get.

Just another confirmation of Villandry:

The Amazing Race - Take Down that Million (Sneak Peek)

With the $1 million dollar prize on the line, the final four teams race through France en route to the finish line in New York City, where they'll encounter a terrifying Houdini-inspired Roadblock, during the two-hour season finale of The Amazing Race airing Sunday at 8/7c.

So, from the pictures, it seems like Palma -> Route Info: Chapelle Saint-Hubert, Château d'Amboise -> Detour: Château de Cheverny (and around)
with Château de Villandry (with Speed Bump and possibly the Roadblock) coming after the Detour

That's quite a distance from the Detour card to the task--a record, maybe? If the plowfield isn't just as far away (or the plowing a lot harder than dog food), it may turn out to be a lopsided choice.
It looks like they're having trouble finding the Fords at Tours: running one way, then the other.   :cmaslol

They seem to be running towards the Avis office. But Avis France does not list any Fords on options. I guess Production could have used the Avis car park to park the free Fords.

32 Rue Fabienne Landy, also in Tours.  (Next to Place de la Gere)


Anybody noticed the different positions of the street tables between both pics?  Maybe on purpose to make a little more difficult finding the Avis?

Yeap, the corner in your pic is in the other side of the block; so they're running torwards the one with the tables.

The Elipsos train that Boingo identified is on time...no surprises there.




Nice one on the bistro!

Slowhatch gets the Train Station.  :xmas49

That was easy, if you see the left side of the cap in the background, the bistro is there.

Seems like we do not see the Beekmans running out of the station with these 3 teams, is it possible that they took another train?

No.  They're all  toghether.

Throwing this out there... we've had no indication of a Roadblock for this leg.. is it possible we might not have one since we got an extra Roadblock in leg 1? or maybe we just arent getting anything in the previews  :cmas5

I think Twinnies screw their own chance by going to the wrong Detour. They were second but chose the harder, more complexing one. Too bad....

I do not know if this fits in this thread, but I just noted an interesting detail when re-watching the final.

When Josh & Brent leave the road block in France we see that the car parked next to theirs has a big sign on the windshield:

Twinnies completed the Speedbump and reached the Detour location before two other teams... I give them full credit for it but I just don't get why they decided not to join Trey and Lexi and do the same Detour...
