Our four nights at the Chateau de Nazelles were a wonderful experience and provided a charming base of operations for day-tripping into the Loire wine and chateau region. The Chateau was about a 10-minute drive from the charming small medieval city of Amboise, which is complete with a chateau-fortress and great cluster of shops and restaurants and pleasant walking areas along the Loire River.

The Chateau de Nazelles offers several types of accommodations, including troglodyte rooms carved out of the ridgeline cliffs. We stayed in such a room which was very comfortable and well equipped. Outside the rooms of the Chateau are lovely garden areas which include access to a barbeque grill for those who are so inclined and a well-stocked kitchen and refrigerator for those who would like to do some light meal or cocktail hour preparations. Furthermore, and a big plus for travelers, is the availability of access to a clothes washer and dryer. Also, the garden areas outside of each of the rooms have lounge chairs and tables so that guests can enjoy a glass of wine or cocktail and snacks in comfort in the cool of the late afternoon.

The included breakfast is very nice in the continental tradition and is served in a gracious dining room near the lodging areas. Also there is a large guest lounge area with TV, comfortable sofas, and wifi access for those with laptops.

One of the pleasant highlights of being a guest at the Chateau de Nazelles is the welcoming hospitality of the owner-manager Veronique. She has two lovely children who live at the Chateau and introduces you to a friendly (but unobstrusive) dog named Sam and a very nice cat named Nutella and a recently acquired frisky kitten named Praline (named by her children). Veronique is a charming and friendly hostess with high standards for cuisine who can provide suggestions for restaurants and hints at how to enhance your travel experience in the Amboise area, which is one of the principal nodes of tourism in the Loire River Valley, enabling good day trips to nearby grand chateaux like Chenonceau or Chambord or up to such stunning sites as the Cathedral at Chartres..

Chateau de Nazelles is a keeper when wishing to enjoy a visit to this part of the Loire region of France.

Room tip: Veronique may adjust rooms after arrival if asked

In a little town Negro Nazelles just out of Amboise( 5minutes), a great central point for exploring the Loire valley if you have a car! The grounds are more breathtaking than the pictures, we definitely want to go back for our 10 year anniversary! Veronique was great for recommending restaurants and reserving them for us! We really enjoyed a restaurant right beside the Chateau de Amboise, L'Epicerie! The Breakfast was great! Veronique gets the bread, honey, and jams from local farmers. She had 5 different types honey which I didn't even realize there was different kinds until France; ones from Lavender, sunflowers, spring.. and many other ones!

We stayed for two nights in Sept 2009. This place was amazing, the gardens were so beautiful, the pictures looked liked they had been photoshoped. The pool was amazing and looked to original, the space of the gardens made it feel as if you were the only ones there. Make sure you ask for rooms in the outbuildings instead of the house, both are good but you get direct access to the gardens outside from the out buildings.

Close drives to Clos Luce and surrounding castles. The owners can recommend a local restaurant; they are well prepared and have a huge list.

Can't say enough about this place, excellent!
