Park of the Pagoda of Chanteloup, Amboise

2.2
Park of the Pagoda of Chanteloup is the oldest park in the French Castle of Chanteloup. Note the distinctive Chinese-inspired 44 m (144 ft) high pagoda monument supported by 16 columns with 16 pillars. Each of the seven floors has a dome built in it, and each dome has a narrow staircase that narrows further as you ascend towards the top. Climb the steps to reveal a panorama of the lush Amboise forest and the contours of the Loire Valley.

  • Such a beautiful place to visit.
  • Incredibly overpriced (10 E!) While this might be a neat tower, your money would be better spent in Amboise. I was able to get a picture over the fence, but that's all I needed. I'm sure the views were great but it was not worth it to me.
  • Not happened accident and attracted by the lunch we picnicked in a bucolic setting enjoying regional specialists. The home is charming, the best clean toilets. The amazing view of the pagoda is worth seeing and wooden games enjoy the young and old. The value of the basket is perfect however the entrance to the Park is a little expensive. In conclusion a popular stop.

  • Pretty nice construction, but the price is much too high for what it is a visit. Even maintenance of the column leaves to be desired... And mostly everything suggests that there are remains of the Castle, but in fact there is no trace of it. We can do very pretty pictures of the pagoda from the outside (side parking), free of charge, so it does not classify this visit as a priority in the region.

  • A timeless place, vestige of a bygone era and a lost area. The pagoda has need of serious restoration and therefore need to visitors. A lot of furniture of the deceased Castle are the Museum of fine arts of towers.
