  • The mini-chateaux Park is very interesting! This gives a good view of all of these castles which are the beauty of our heritage... following our visit we know what castles we want to visit! The Park lacks a bit of maintenance, damaged castles, weeds... Opportunities to borrow costumes from King and Queen for children...

  • A circuit to introduce 41 castles of the Loire in miniature very good representations of all its castles gives her even more wanted to see them in real size and the children we saw there was amazed

  • The park entrance is at 14euros. Children bored put off the activity of horses and small cars. Very disappointing especially for the price. In addition the Park is not maintained and mini castles left in tatters. I do not advise.

  • Great concept, but overpriced for the quality. I think the 4starred reviews to be fake.
  • Boring
  • What happened in the Park? Chenonceau has failed in the vase, Azay le Rideau is reflected more in the water but in a bed of mud and dead grass, these wonders of the Loire deserve better than that! The models are beautiful but worn by time and elements and open spaces have not seen the hand of a gardener for a long time. And I pass on the records that do not work. A very disappointed.

  • I wanted to do for a long time. It is interesting to discover the castles of the Loire on a single site, but there is a lack of general maintenance of the Park which is course in 1:30. Some installation are dangerous for children (missing handrail, wooden board used by the time...) so nice to do if you have 1 hour free with children in Amboise. The price is a bit expensive. (€ 14 per adult, € 10.50 for children - in 2016)

  • A good place to start your visit to the castles of the Loire, miniature reproduction of all Chateaux with what you can get an idea of how they are and which see if you don't have it very clear. Now also has attractions for children: cars on Rails, horses on Rails, inflatable maze. So the more children will also be entertained
