Travel Blogs from Amboise
It was a very long day, but when we finally reached Amboise we were absolutely delighted! The long twilight means it isn't fully dark until after 10pm, so even though it was quite late we were greeted with the vision of a huge cliff, topped by a magnificent chateau. Our hotel is a luxuriously appointed group of historic buildings and it backs on to …
Today the weather changed on us and we had intermittent showers throughout the day, but the temperature was pleasant and the rain didn't really dampen our desire to explore the countryside some more. We drove through Tours to a small village on the other side where we visited the Chateau de Villandry, renowned for its gardens more than for the …
This morning we went to Le Chateau de Chenonceau, probably the most popular and most developed of the Loire chateau's.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
- Swimming pool
- Room service
- Free High-Speed Internet
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!
