  • Super nice Park view for a long time even under a fine rain have enjoy very clean and very well done.

  • Park not corresponding to the good memory I had: this park has aged very badly. The castles are poorly maintained. Many of them have the walls broken, various traces due to weather conditions. The mini train no longer works. Same for small boats (down). The maintenance of the gardens is more than limit... It's a shame that this park no longer has the splendour of his debut. However very friendly staff. So much for the result.

  • In this park, you have the opportunity to get an idea on the castles of the Loire and you can thus perhaps + easily select those you wish to visit :) A few smaller attractions for children are very friendly. A nice Park to do and at the exit of the parking lot, if they are still there, enjoy a small pony or donkey ride...

  • 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
  • Interessnt.
  • 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.
