About
The history of the Château d'Amboise dates back to the 11th century, when the Count of Anjou built the castle on the promontory, surveying the Loire River, as a defence strategy. Between the 15th and 16th centuries , under the orders of Charles VII, Louis XII and Francois I, the castle was refurnished. Its magnificent facade can be attributed to Charles VIII and Francois I, and their love for Italian art and style. It was because of this passion for Italian art that Francois I invited Leonardo Da Vinci to come and reside in Amboise as his first painter, architect and engineer. Da Vinci arrived in 1516 and spent the remaining three years of his life living and working in the nearby Chateau du Clos Lucé (connected to the royal chateau by an underground passage). Leonardo Da Vinci died in Amboise and was buried in the Chapel of Saint-Hubert (on the ramparts of the Chateau d'Amboise). Visit few wineries and enjoy a delightful 3-course lunch during this wonderful tour.

What to expect
  • Spend a full day enjoying the gorgeous Loire Valley countryside during a small-group 11-hour wine tour from Paris. Get picked up at your hotel in Paris and head straight for the Château d'Amboise (the Royal Castle of Amboise). Enjoy a 1-hour tour with an audioguide. See the chateau, the gardens, and the chapel in which Leonardo da Vinci is buried. Learn about the castle's importance in the history of the region, as it was the gathering place for artists, philosophers, and humanists from all over France, Italy, and Flanders. Enjoy lunch inside an atmospheric restaurant, situated inside what was once an ancient mountain cave house. Relax in front of the big fireplace and admire the exceptional woodwork in the cozy restaurant. Dine on traditional Loire Valley specialties after a welcome drink of Montlouis sparkling wine. Visit a Chinon winery after lunch to sample some of the region's famous wines. Get a tour of the winery with an expert guide. Learn about the Chinon wines grown on the 2.5-acre (17-hectare) estate. Try six wines — one rose, one white, and four reds — along with other locally made products. Your day of tasting and exploration ends with transport back to your hotel in Paris.

Both Victor and Vincent were great hosts for our tour of 8 to the Loire Valley. We needed two vehicles, both of which were very comfortable and we learned a lot about French history and culture on our way from Paris. It was certainly a full day of great wine and food and the choice for lunch was absolutely fantastic. 2 wineries and 1 chateau proved to be a great balance for a day trip. Both hosts were prompt and safe drivers. I recommend not planning anything else for your day as it's a full 12-hours or so.
