Le Château de Pray
A charming château hotel with a Michelin-starred gastronomic restaurant
Well-positioned on the hillside on the south bank of the Loire, the château has watched over the valley for centuries, guarding the secrets of some of the finest pages in French history.
Just a stone's throw from Amboise, the château, a 4-star hotel and Michelin-starred restaurant, nestles in 5 hectares of wooded parkland with formal gardens, terraces, vegetable patch and heated swimming pool.
This superb 13th-century château, remodelled during the Renaissance and framed by its two protective towers, is a haven of tranquillity in the heart of the Loire.
Here you'll find everything you need for an exceptional break to share with your loved ones, family or friends.
A Michelin-starred gourmet restaurant in a room carved out of the tufa stone
Bathed in natural light, L'Orangerie's troglodyte dining room welcomes you from Wednesday evening to Sunday lunchtime.
Carved out of the rock, the dining room is initially a feast for the eyes, before the talent of Chef Arnaud Philippon and his brigade comes into play and transports you.
Subtlety and creativity combine to bring you a cuisine from near and far, where the richness of the terroir skilfully meets flavours from near and far.
A meal with a thousand flavours that invites you to travel.
