Chateau de Perreux - Amboise
Travel Blogs from Nazelles Negron
The morning started wet and cold and didn't improve for much of the day. A taxi took us to Orly airport to collect our car. It took a while to locate the pickup point but in the end all went smoothly. The car is a black and white Citroen DS3 diesel, with zero kilometres on the clock. Our bags fit but if I find an attractive hitch hiker Robyn will …
This beautiful castle built on the River Cher was home to five different ladies between 1499-1836; Diane De Poitiers, Catherine de Medici, Louise of Lorraine, Louise Dupin and Marguerite Pelouze. During the First World War, it served as a hospital. Although the crowds were large, we enjoyed seeing this charming and beautifully restored residence. We relished a lovely lunch on site after viewing the ...
We experienced a bit of difficulty with the language barrier yesterday. Amsterdam and Belgium are such small countries that almost every speaks English. In France, that's not the case. We had requested a GPS in the car at St. Pierre des Corps, which we didn't get. Neither did Enterprise have a map in English. Through trial and error, we ...
... turned into evening we were sitting munching away on our evening meal of pasta and a rather nice cheesy French sauce, with slices of this lunchtimes left over huge mutant baguette, having sipped a couple of cold ones and opened a bottle of France's finest (well cheap plonk) when we heard him ask, I think it's about time for a beer, ooooo yes please she replied but could I also have a carrot, Andy nearly spat his wine out and I ...
The guy from the camping was a fan of old Citroëns and you'd find them parked around the camping side. Old pictures showed his organized meetings for old timers in the recent years and some of the campers came with their camping cars or caravans pulled with an old timer - fun !! As it was raining a little again but it seemed to get better so we went to visit a small town called Chinon about a half an hour away.

TravelPod Member ReviewsChateau de Perreux - Amboise Nazelles Negron
Very comfortable room with an eclectic mixture of old furniture. The building dates back to the 17th century and is built on old caves which have been enlarged by generations of quarrying for limestone. In fact the parking is inside the old cave.
It's not new and slick but showing an elegant decay which is in line with its age.
The exterior and grounds are a visual feast and every girls fairytale castle.
Charlotte the manager could not have been more helpful or more friendly.
A terrific stay.
