TravelPod Member ReviewsLe Choiseul Amboise
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!

The Chenonceau chateau is the most popular chateau in the area. It is built over the river Cher and has some beautiful gardens around it. Very nice. After that we checked in to our hotel. Later a trip downtown for some dinner.
Tomorrow, two more chateaus and then we head farther south.

I was allocated a Specialised Vita. It was Very light - a hybrid. We headed off around 9:30 and had only got down the road ...
... she was, and the meal was ok. Treas had Coquille St Jaques (scallops ) and I made the mistake of feeling like a steak..... Note to self - do not order steak in France! Ever again! Now, I know this - I've been caught before, but keep letting it slip my mind.... Also - I know this too, but also forgot - order it much better cooked than you would if you were at home. You will find that rare = raw!, medium-rare = raw, medium = raw, and well-done = raw! I had ...
... however it is dull, tired and bleak and the grounds seem relatively neglected. We spent only an hour here and it is a reminder to us that we have seen enough chateaux and fortresses for one holiday. We then made our way into Tours for dinner. Tours appealed as it has quite an attractive city eating area. However the modern trams and the GPS made getting into the centre a little ...
... inside a crystal reliquary, and she looks like she is simply sleeping peacefully. We left the chapel and visited the chapel gift shop, where I bought a couple of rosaries, a bookmark and a postcard. I don't buy too many souvenirs unless they are very lightweight, because we carry our rucksacks and do not normally check baggage when we fly. Before leaving the chapel grounds in Nevers, we visited a museum where several personal items of ...
