This graceful riverside castle was the home to French kings and final resting place of Leonardo Da Vinci. We recommend combining with a visit to Clos Luce 250 metres up the road, or a visit to Chenonceau 20 mins away. The village has lovely restaurants and bistros nestled around the base of the…

The chateau is high up and worth visiting but so is the town. Cool clothes shops, cobbled streets, good food and happy vibe. I love going there. Cool Sunday market, largest in France they claim...

Castle
“Said clo loosay. The castle is more of a stately home and the final home of Leonardo Da Vinci. His creations have been brought to life throughout the gardens in giant size. There are nice picnic areas available in the garden so bring a picnic lunch, or go to one of the many lovely bistros nearby. Best combined with a visit to Amboise to get the full history of the friendship between Leonardo and King Francois I.”

Garden
“This graceful chateau bridges a river and has been continuously owned and inhabited by women. The furnishings and gardens are amazing. We love the audio guide as it is narrated by a previous owner and gives you a real feeling of what it was like to live there. It is the most visited castle in the Loire Valley, with good reason, so go early and expect crowds. ”

Castle
“The castle is lovely, but most people visit for the gardens. 12 full time gardeners maintain nine hectares of spectacular gardens. The gardens look different depending on the season so this is a castle to visit multiple times.”

“This romantic castle is set on an island in the middle of a river. They have fun animations in the rooms. We recommend a stop at nearby Chateau de la Grille for a wine tasting on your way past.”
