The Loire valley welcomes 5 millions visitors each year from all around the world.
This attractiveness is linked to its Unesco classification, the « Renaissance » castles, museums, French gardens, vineyards ...
Amboise is in the heart of this area, making it the perfect place to stay.
You will be at walking distance (5 minutes) of the royal castle, the park of Leonardo da Vinci, the shops and restaurants. Our location allows you as well to go by bike on the safe bikeway (« La Loire à vélo » is 200 meters away). Or stroll in the historic downtown, the traffic becoming very busy during the season.
The car isn’t essential. You can arrive by the railway station, coming from Tours or Paris.
And a lot of activities are within walking distance, like royal castle, leonardo park, Gaillard castle gardens, Pagode, historic downtown or Friday and Sunday markets. The trip from the train station requires a 15-20 minutes walk through the historic downtown, which is not unpleasant. (Just provide a suitcase that rolls)
From the train station to the cottage : 15 minutes waking way across the historic downtown.
From the cottage to Leonardo da Vinci's house : 10 minutes walking way.
We live in the main house at the bottom of the garden, which allows us to be on site to welcome you, and to serve or advise you when you wish, and only when you wish.
