Appreciate the refined architecture and feminine influence in each room and see precious antiques and flower arrangements. For lunch, enjoy a meal served at an off-the-beaten-path location, hosted by the French Countess who lives there. Taste local food in one of the smallest of all the Loire Valley castles. Then, continue to Chateau Chambord. Discover a glorious work of art and architecture as your guide selects the most emblematic rooms to visit. Hear memorable anecdotes as they point out hidden details. Get breathtaking views of the castle during a coffee break in Chambord Park before returning to Amboise in the evening.

2. From Tours/Amboise: Azay le Rideau, Langeais & Villandry

Take a tour of the Chateau of Langeais which is a perfect balance between gardens, architecture, and contemporary art. You will be surprised by this 15th-century fortress, which contrasts with the quirky art exhibition. Its huge garden is inspired by fairy tales and cartoons. A confidential place for an original experience. Then, have a guided tour of one of the most spectacular gardens of Touraine, Villandry. By its diversity and originality (Love Garden, Kitchen Garden, Aromatic and Medicine Plant Garden, Water Garden and the brand new Sun Garden) and by its size (15 acres, 1150 linden trees), Villandry is the Loire Valley garden not to be missed. With your guide, learn to speak the language of a medieval and Renaissance garden while discovering the power of thyme and basil on your health. At the end of the tour, your guide will drop you off in Tours at 5:30 PM or in Amboise at 6:15 PM.

What people are saying about Amboise

Fantastic Day

The day was spent visiting the Châteaux and was simply awesome. Travelling in a small group of 8 allowed us to get to know each other a little and move around more easily. The pace of the day was perfect with just the right amount of information from our guide Agate who was both knowledgeable and friendly. A highlight of the day was sitting together enjoying a lovely lunch with great wine in a small family Château- fabulous. Of course the two main attractions - Chenonceau and Chambord were amazing!

Vincent was an excellent guide and source of information. The chateau were beautiful and we were given ample time at each to explore

Lovely visit of the two chateaus plus a lunch prepared by a local. Very nice trip through a beautiful area.
