44 reviews
The sweeping vineyards, lush forests and fairy-tale castles of the Loire Valley are even more impressive from above and this 3-hour hot-air balloon experience is the ideal way to enjoy an aerial view. Float over the UNESCO-listed landscapes of the Loire, Indre or Cher Valleys; spot landmarks like the Chateau of Chenonceau or the gardens of Villandry; then toast your safe landing with a glass of Champagne or sparkling grape juice.

We were staying opposite from this chateau & had the most wonderful view every day. We really enjoyed our visit. Very interesting history, lovely rooms & gardens. The terraces outside the walls of the chateau are perfect for eating.

Pleasant visit to the royal Château on a camping trip through France. The interactive tablet guide in English is very good and helps bring history to life. Spectacular views of the Loire river and lovely garden walks. Plenty of restaurants just outside the Château in Amboise

I recommend to take the tablet for some extra info during the visit. Well organized only one thing is a disappointment: where they keep the rest of Leonardo da Vinci , maybe it should be more less "poor" considering the implrt a nce of the man. The most disappointing thing is

Hi Mario, thanks for your post. It's good to read that you have enjoyed your visit to Amboise. For Leonardo burial's place we must consider here the place in which it is located: a chapel certainly royal, but the dimensions which remain modest. Decorum was conditioned by this imponderable. The name does indeed appear in French, but I would point out that there is an epitaph in Italian :-) See you soon! A presto !

We were lucky to go on a beautiful sunny day. The remaining buildings of the chateau are interesting’ but the gardens are magnificent. It is not too expensive either. Strongly recommend.

Well worth a visit if only for the 360 degrees view. They issue you with a tablet that you can see what the rooms would have looked like in the period- fantastic idea. The gardens are lovely and very well kept. Highly recommended
