We spent two nights in Amboise - home base for touring the valley's famous Chateau. Actually getting to stay in one was icing on the cake for my family. When we arrived, we were greeted cordially by reception. She offered us an upgraded room - we had booked a room with a loft in a separate building - but they... More

We stayed at this Chateau during our honeymoon and will never forget the experience. This beautiful small chateau with carefully tended gardens is situated just outside the charming town of Amboise. Our room was impeccably clean and most tastefully furnished, with a gorgeous view of the gardens. Service is exceptional with every effort made to ensure our stay was comfortable,... More

We stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed the chateau's location and well maintained grounds. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We only had breakfast one morning, the breakfast room was lovely but we felt it was over priced at 16.50 per person/per day for a european continental breakfast. Eggs cooked to order cost 7 euros extra. We stayed in... More

Dear Madame, Monsieur, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about your stay at the château de Pray.

The grounds, the room, and the atmosphere are wonderful. But what truly shines is the staff. Everyone from the sommelier to the receptionist are there to cater to the guests! They even helped with a parking ticket. Our dinner was unforgettable. This is where California's French Laundry gets its inspiration?

We stayed there just one night with our children (02 teens), The staff was very friendly and helpful give us some tips. The chateau is very well maintained and really charming, the gardens are beautiful also in the winter, and we could see a nice pool there(of course out of order at the winter time).We were in a family room...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights based on a recommendation from a friend who had stayed before, and it has been one of the highlights of our trip through France so far. The experience of staying in a 16th century castle was every bit as amazing as I was imagining, having seen the pictures and read the... More

I stayed here for 3 nights on a road trip through France. Our other accommodations were self-catering rentals (AirBNB) as we were a group of 4-5 people, but Chateau de Pray was our splurge as we were looking for an experience of staying in a castle. After much online research, we decided to go with Chateau de Pray for it's... More

The three nights' stay at the Chateau de Pray was our splurge during our stay in the loire area and we were not disappointed. It has that terrific first impression when you pull off the road onto the approach with its twin turrets and that magical open terrace in between. A picture perfect sight. Driving up to the entrance had... More

My husband and I arrived on September 11 after a very stressful car trip from the CDG Airport. Stress is what you get when you miss the A? highway you need to be on.
