Travel Blogs from Blois
to the lovely Blois this morning, although it was a little
disappointing as the 'Musee de Magic' was not open. Should have never
told Ella about it as it got her excited! (It was the former home of
the French 'Houdin' who the American Houdini got his name from. But
we ended up exploring all the quiet backstreets of Blois, very quiet
and built into the hills so many ...
up frosty and cold (trying to scrimp on what gas we have left!) we
got on the road to the biggest and best chateau of the Loire Valley:
Chambord! The pics say it for themselves really, but it was quite
amazing although very cold inside! They were not so clever as the
bigger the rooms/higher the roofs, the harder to heat! Was built in
the 15th ...
Once again a lazy start to the day but eventually we got on the road to Amboise! This is a very very pretty town with a lot more upmarket troglodyte living! Very hip. But the main highlight here was 'Clos Luce' Leonardo's last home for 3 years of his life which was a big ...
... had over 3 glasses...and that's before 11am! He took us through the incredible caves where barrels are left in a perfect temp to age.

We got to our campsite nice and early to chill...this moving about can be hard ...
... We saw a number of rooms lavishly decorated and furnished.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Le Monarque Blois
Hotel Le Monarque is a good hotel except for two areas. Firstly the WiFi does not reach many of the rooms. Saw a few guests sitting in or near the lobby using their computers where they had access. Secondly, the bicycle storage area was not secure. It is an open area at the side of the hotel. The gates are shut at 10 pm. Also the bikes are out in the open without shelter.
