Recent Amboise property reviews

  • Wonderful Stay in the Loire

    "My friends and I had a wonderful stay in Le Cardinal - it was a perfect location for the part of the Loire we wanted to explore. Steven & Veronica were wonderful hosts and could not have been more helpful! The house was very comfortable and had everything we could possibly need - including champagne glasses!"

  • Great hospitality in the Loire Valley

    "We felt so welcome on our recent stay with Brigitte and Gilbert. The house is lovely and the gardens a site all on their own. We came here as our first destination in France, and pulling up to such a lovely setting, with local wine and products available in the kitchen was very welcoming. The location is very central to visiting all the neighboring chateaux, but you do need your own car to get around. Although their was one very tasty restaurant about a 10 minute walk away through the woods. We had our 9 year old son with us and it was a great place for him as well. We played petanque in the afternoons, roamed around the gardens and read Tin Tin books. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in a time in the Loire Valley."

  • Loire Valley Vacation

    "My husband and I (60's) and our son and daughter-in-law (30's) appreciated having 2 bathrooms. The property was very well maintained and as advertised. The owner was very helpful with recommendations for meals and shopping and we loved being greeted with a jar of apricot jam. We spent a week with the village as home base and with excursions to see the chateaux each day. We walked out to one of the excellent boulangers each morning, found a pleasant small restaurant for dinner and an outstanding boucherie for picnic supplies. There is a lovely path along the Cher for evening walks. I would definitely return and spend more time just enjoying the property!"

  • Superb!

    "Relaxing, beautiful, comfortable! If you want an extremely pleasant experience, you have found the place to stay. After a fun day exploring Amboise and its environs, my grown family of five would return to this lovely retreat and have a great night's sleep. Thank you, Karine and Thierry, for providing such a lovely apartment for our use. It is a little slice of heaven!"

Amboise Travel Tips

Experience Beauty with Amboise Vacation Rentals

Amboise lies quietly on the bank of the river. The picturesque town will provide you with a variety of different activities. The foliage in this area of France is gorgeous. Gardens, fountains, and little copses of trees can be found in surprising places throughout town and lend a beautiful kind of charm to the riverside town. Simply walking through the narrow streets of the town will provide you with beautiful and unique sites.

Tour Historic Sites

One of the greatest draws of Amboise travel is the presence of such historical sites as the Château, and Clos-Luce—the residence of Leonardo da Vinci. Both of these sites are open to tours and offer shows on certain days of the week. At the home of Leonardo da Vinci, you can see an exhibit of da Vinci’s inventions. The castle also offers tours. The castle is a combination of both Gothic and medieval architecture as it was added to by Charles VIII and following rulers.

Enjoy the Local Parts of Town

While Amboise does have interesting tourist sites like the castle and Clos-Luce, the local parts of town are also notable. The open market takes place on Saturday and Sunday mornings by the riverside. Local produce and crafts are displayed and sold in the market. Instead of a manufactured tourist item, remember your stay with something more authentic from the local market. Stroll the streets and shops of the town without a map or destination and you will make surprising and memorable discoveries.

Stay in Style
