Trains & Car Hire

If you need any advice with planning your travel within France we will be glad to help out and point you in the right direction. It’s worth noting for example that many of our guests find it easier to travel to the Loire Valley by train and hire a car at St Pierre des Corps, than take the nail-biting alternative of navigating your way around Paris by car! There is also a direct Paris-Amboise train should you decide that a car is not necessary for your visit. It is a 10-15 minute walk from the station to us – allow a bit more if you’ve got a lot of luggage or consider booking a taxi ahead.

Loire by Bike

Amboise offers the perfect stopover if you are following the Loire à Vélo route. Being just strolling distance from the town centre many of our cycling guests choose to abandon their bikes for a few days and explore on foot. There is plenty to see with the Royal Château, the Clos Lucé, Château Gaillard and many small shops & restaurants. Alternatively, Château de Chenonceau is just 16km away and is therefore an easy loop by bike for a day trip.

 

At Les Fleurons we try to give you as much insight as possible into the Loire Valley and France in general before & during your trip, to be sure that you are well prepared and make the most of your visit. This is all part of our service and is aimed at making your stay here a great experience. So let us know if we can be of any help planning the trip – we can give you plenty of ideas for visiting châteaux, vineyards, restaurants, bike hire etc.

 

Directions

Here are directions as you approach Amboise from the direction of the autoroute A10 junction 18.

When you approach Amboise on the D31 continue over the River (Pont Michel Debré) and take the exit to the right just as you finish crossing the bridge. Follow the road down to a T-junction and turn left towards the town. Carry on along this road until you start to arrive in town (just short of the arched bridge) and you can then either turn left into rue Louis Xii (just before the Lion d’Or) or take the next left into the centre of town rue François 1er. Either way, rue de la Concorde will be first left after about 50yds. Turn left and the apartments are halfway along on the left opposite the Minimes tower of the castle.

 

Coming by train

It is an easy 10 to 15 minute walk to us from Amboise railway station. Here are the directions by foot :-

Leave the station from the front of the main building and take the rue Jules Ferry, which heads you in a straight line towards the town. After a few hundred yards you will reach a bread shop & butchers on your right – take the road to the right which will lead you to the bridge. Cross over the bridges heading straight for the Château, pass the Salamandre restaurant and at the end of the second bridge turn to your left. Walk down to the lower level and you can take either the rue Charles XIII or Louis XII, both of which lead into rue de la Concorde. Take a left and the property is a few yards down on the left, opposite the castle tower.
