  • 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.
  • Excellent day out with children highly recommended
  • 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
  • Great concept, but overpriced for the quality. I think the 4starred reviews to be fake.

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.
