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.

Lovely cottage, everything you need and the perfect base for exploring the stunning Loire valley.

5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday in Gite de la Bergerie. It is a beautiful, spacious cottage with modern features yet maintains the character of the old building. We had slightly misread the advert - this house has one WC, and does not have toilets in the bathrooms (we had no problem - just for information) The garden was lovely - a complete sun trap and spent some beautiful days just lazing with a glass of cold Touraine watching the clouds go by. It does not have wifi but has a mobile signal so we brought a Wifi transmitter which worked perfectly. There is a walk of around 30 minutes to the town of Amboise, which has a steep hill so would be difficult without a car for anyone elderly or with disabilities. We managed perfectly well and enjoyed our walks to and from town. There is a large supermarket in easy driving distance, but you could manage without a car if required as long as you are happy to walk. Amboise is a lovely town and is perfect to explore the delights of the Loire valley and Chateaux, and has a train station for easy access to other places. We took our car and got the ferry to Caen, but you could easily fly into Tours. Willy also produces his own wine and beer and he offers wine tasting - his shop is 2 minutes walk away. We also had a fabulous day harvesting grapes and wine tasting at "Vignoble Alain-Robert" - well worth a visit if you are arriving in September/October. In summary, I would highly recommend this house, Willy and the Loire. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Tranquil, modern and characterful apartment for our short break in the Loire

5 of 5
Anne-Laure is a very warm and welcoming host to this superbly renovated apartment where we enjoyed three nights stay as part of our exploration of France. The space has a very calm, relaxing feel so we enjoyed staying in when the weather was wet and the table tennis and darts were an added bonus. The kitchen is well equipped and everything is immaculate. We loved the town of Amboise with its impressive chateau, historic shopping streets and great places to eat. We highly recommend the accomodation as a superb spot to stay and enjoy the beautiful Loire valley.
