Book your dinner and overnight stay at one of the best addresses in the region before leaving the next day for a visit to the Château d'Amboise.
Follow the enchanting roads of the Loire Valley and discover the Château de Chenonceau, also known as the Chateau des Dames due to the many influences of women on its transformation over the years. Book your visit to this flagship of the Loire Valley architecture, whose history was marked by the presence and involvement of women such as Diane de Poitiers or Catherine de Medicis.
