This elegant period house in creamy tufa stone combines the peace of its spacious walled garden (the clos), but also the benefits of authentic small-town life in the animated, historic riverside town of Amboise.

The 17 tastefully decorated rooms are all different, with eclectic antiques and funky mirrors, there’s a swimming pool carefully hidden at the end of the garden, while friendly, helpful staff make staying here a real pleasure.

It’s the ideal base for exploring the Loire Valley by bike or by car. The chateau is an easy stroll from the hotel; pop into the Bigot patisserie en route for wonderful cakes and chocolate.

Surrounding area

Situated in the centre of Amboise, one of the most attractive towns in the Loire, the hotel is just a few minutes’ walk from the Château Royal d’Amboise and the Clos Luce.

The town itself is also well worth exploring with its white stone, half-timbered and even troglodyte houses and its pedestrianised shopping streets, but also makes a good base for exploring the rest of the Loire Valley by bike or by car.
