Amboise, the royal city
Just 2 km from our hotel
The magnificent historic city of Amboise is just 5 minutes from our hotel. Crossed by the Loire, the town charmed many French sovereigns who furnished and gradually extended the stunning royal fortress. While it was Charles VIII who undertook the most beautiful constructions, François I is probably the most famous king to have lived in the castle. It was he who invited Leonardo da Vinci to stay in the Clos Lucé, near the fortress, associating both of their names with the city of Amboise for evermore.
