Accommodation in Amboise

Wine Tour Accommodation in and around Amboise

Thinking about doing a little wine touring in the Loire valley? We recommend you base yourselves in or around Amboise if planning to spend more than a day. Amboise is a delightful market town perched on the river Loire and is perfectly positioned for visiting both the vineyards and the famous chateaux of the Loire valley. There are loads of spectacular places to stay in and around Amboise ranging from 5 star luxury country chateaux to chic troglodyte dwellings and beautiful bed and breakfasts.

Hotels with a great restaurant too

Chateau de Pray, Chargé

We’re very happy to announce we are partnering with Chateau de Pray in 2024. It’s a lovely hotel just outside Amboise whch also happens to have a Michelin starred restaurant. If you’re looking for a calm spot just outside of town then look no further. The staff are extremely welcoming and the pool is delightful. The perfect place to unwind after a day of looking at chateaux or wine tasting with us!

The restaurant is fabulous and it has a great wine list with many of our favourites. Nigel and I spent a night there last year to celebrate my birthday. You can see him enjoying a glass of Vincent Carême’s Plaisir Ancestrale – a delightful sparkling Vouvray from one of the appellation’s top producers.

If you choose to book at the Chateau then do mention Le Tasting Room to Jerome Norais who is the accommodation manager. He’ll be sure to look after you.
