Make a holiday villa in Amboise your away from home

Amboise is a small settlement of approximately 12,500 inhabitants, situated directly on the banks of the stunning Loire River in France. The township’s rich royal history, in addition to the magnitude of sights and attractions on offer, make it the perfect place for a romantic getaway, a family holiday, or a relaxing break from the everyday grind. If you can picture yourself on the balcony of a luxury holiday villa in Amboise with a glass of mouth-watering French wine and a view of the stunning Chateau d'Amboise, then Amboise is the holiday destination for you. As well as holiday villas in Amboise, HomeAway also presents a range of accommodations including apartments and farmhouse cottages.

Things to do in Amboise

Although Amboise is a small town, the area provides travellers with a plethora of things to see and do. If you choose to hire a car for the duration of your stay, your Amboise holiday villa may also act as a fantastic home base, from which to explore all that France has to offer.

-Wine tasting is an absolute must whilst staying in Amboise, as a superfluity of fantastic vineyards dot the region, producing world-class red and white wines. Some such establishments include Biovidis (a certified maker of organic wine), Le Caveau des vignerons d'Amboise and Domaine Le Rocher des Violettes; all of which can be easily reached on foot from Amboise holiday homes. You may however, also enjoy visiting some of the more remote vineyards, which is easily undertaken via one of the various wine tours that regularly run through the area.

-Hot Air Ballooning is a great way to enjoy the beautiful landscape and scenery surrounding Amboise. Although this activity is only offered from April to October owing to the favourable weather conditions, it is an impressive way to spoil your significant other, and will also provide you with some absolutely once in a lifetime photographs to take home.

-The Chateau d'Amboise is a stunning must-see castle which boasts an extremely rich history; including ties to the French and Scottish royal families, in addition to Napoleon Bonaparte during the French Revolution and Nazi Germany during both world wars. If you’re not overly interested in history however, the castle is still worth visiting, if only to enjoy the sheer beauty of the architecture, as well as the surrounding gardens.

-The Parc des Mini-Chateaux is a fantastic attraction for kids and adults alike, and is situated a mere 7 kilometres from most Amboise holiday apartments and villas. Once there you will be greeted by miniature models of all of the popular chateaux within the Loire region, in addition to a miniature railway landscaped with well-tended bonsai trees and shrubs. The park may also help you decide which of these superb buildings you’d like to visit during your time in Amboise.

-A Segway is an extremely novel way to explore the Amboise region and learn a little about this exclusive area of France. The Freemove Segway Centre, located just 11 kilometres from Amboise, offers fantastic guided tours of the region, which are guaranteed to be a big hit with your children, regardless of age or gender. If guided tours are not really your cup of tea however, you may like to rent a Segway and discover the area at your own volition.

The weather in Amboise

Amboise experiences warm summers and cool damp winters, and as such, the period between May and October is generally favoured by travellers interested in outdoor pursuits. If you are looking for a winter holiday destination however, an Amboise holiday home will not disappoint, with a plethora of great activates on offer, including the fabulous Amboise Winter Markets.

Getting to Amboise

Amboise may be easily reached from the Tours Airport via a short 30 minute bus, taxi or hire car drive. A hire car is highly beneficial however, if you’re interested in stopping to take full advantage of the beautiful scenery offered along the banks of the La Loire River, which parallels the road for the majority of your journey.

The three ensuites were a bonus - not often we have found that with French properties. Good garden with table and chairs for outside eating. We were fortunate to hit a beautiful spell of weather and had all our meals in the garden. There is a good deal to see in Amboise and the property is close enough to the town to walk in. It's even closer to the market which consisted of a large one on Sunday and a smaller local type one on Friday. Both were good but we thought the Friday one was one of the best we have found in France. Good supermarket just across the road was a real boon. There is also an excellent Boulangerie just along the road.

Francoise is welcoming, pleasant and professional. Her pride and enthusiasm for the house are reflected in her attention to detail. The back looks out over fields and a quiet lane, footpaths and tracks lead out towards Amboise Forest. Plenty of restaurants to choose from in Amboise, 40min walk along the river, or a few mins by car and easy to park in town. Netto supermarket close by for essentials. Clean, well equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed it so much we're returning in September.
