Filled with history, this jewell among the castles in Loire is imposing, magnificent, on the hill of one of those wonderful villages in France. Not to miss. Resting place of Leonardo da Vinci.

You should visit this Chateau if you are staying in Amboise. Lots of interesting history, gorgeous views of the Loire River and large, well kept gardens. Leonardo Da Vinci is buried at the onside chapel of St. Hubert, who knew?! Nice surprise.
