    I think it's an interesting way to discover many castles of the Loire without having the need to move. The models are quite spectacular and very realistic. It is true that the admission ticket is pretty expensive but imagine the cost of all its models. It is a nice Park for young and old.

    Very nice place especially if one goes there as a family. Children will love to take to Gulliver.

    Nice, but expensive. There are some kids activities, but they got bored with the main attractions pretty fast. If you like models, it is pretty impressive

    A must discover before touring around the Loire castles. It gives you an idea on what to expect and which are the important ones.

    It is nice to see all the miniature castles but the place needs renovation. Not a lot to do with kids and the miniature trains were not working

Where to stay in Amboise

You can easily explore the area in and around Amboise from a comfortable base in the much larger town of Tours. If you do choose to stay in Amboise itself, consider booking your rooms at a private B&B on the outskirts of town. Located in park-like settings with horses and fields, these family-run establishments offer good food and insider tips to the area's tourist attractions. You can also choose a luxurious private villa in the countryside between Amboise and Tours, an area famous for its restaurants and sweeping views of the river Loire.
