What to expect

Live like a king for a day and experience the art de vivre à la française at Amboise, Clos Lucé, Chenonceau and wine-tasting at Chateau Valmer.

Seat back and relax in a comfy minibus and hit the road to reach the Chateau Royal d'Amboise. Located on top of a cliff looking over the Loire River, the view from there is breathtaking. You'll experience the real 'art de vivre à la française' and discover the kings’ secrets and the chapel where Leonard de Vinci rests in peace.

You will continue your trip to the manoir du Clos Lucé where Leonard De Vinci got to spend the last 3 years of his life. You will sense Leonardo da Vinci’s spirit while creating flying machines, bridges or weapons…

For lunch, you'll enjoy a beautiful setting with view on the castle and taste some typical French and local dishes.

One of the best moments of the day will be the visit of the Chateau de Chenonceau. Built as a bridge arching across the Cher River, Chenonceau is the most popular chateau in the Loire Valley and this is due to its amazing architecture and grounds. The setting accurately depicts the «art de vivre à la française» at that time.

The tour will end with the wine tasting in the beautiful gardens of the Chateau de Valmer, a enchanting haven isolated from the rest of the city.
