      Staff - very friendly.
      Location - 5 mins walk from the city center. Other towns/castles are easily accessible by car.
      Rooms - large, beautifully decorated in Renaissance style with either a garden or river view. This is the main reason to chose this hotel in my opinion.
      Restaurant - very "interesting". The French guests seemed to enjoy their meals very much. I had a little difficulty eating the "rabbit stomach cooked in its own skin" (or something along those lines). But the deserts were excellent and they provided some gratis surprises, which made things extra fun. I didn't leave hungry!

      ... King Francois fell in love with one of the paintings Leonardo had brought: The Mona Lisa. Francois gave Leonardo a nice house which was Francois' boyhood home! That house is the very house that is known a Clos LucÚ! People also say that Francois looked up to da Vince a lot. The French king even called him "Father" and many known paintings show da Vince on his deathbed, with Francois holding his hand! You probably know many of ...

      ... and peaceful house is set in Parc Leonardo Da Vinci. Here he finished work on his 3 favourite paintings, including the Mona Lisa. A copy of this hung in one of the rooms, much larger than the original that we hope to see next week. In the basement were numerous models of his inventions. The grounds and gardens were lovely, and more models were round every corner. Flying ...

      It started to rain so we quickly rushed to the hotel, Le Breche. This was a 2 star hotel, just outside of the city centre that had a lot of character. The dinner at the hotel was another feast to remember. The French food has been outstanding, the presentation, taste, friendly service and the endless courses of local dishes just amaze ...

      We enjoyed the cycle in the grounds and back to St Dye some 8km away.
