We used our last two days to visit the chateaux of the region: the chateau d'Amboise and Cheneneaux. Both were stunning. We also wandered the town and discovered nice views from the cliffs above amboise. Our hotel was luxurious with a great king bed, nightly turndown service and a sitting area.
Wednesday morning i enjoyed a jog along the loire before it got too hot followed by a solo coffee while eric slept in a little.
What we didnt love in amboise was traffic. It was a horrible city to navigate and eric was intrepid in maintaining patience.
We had one of our best meals on this trip at lunch. We copied Sandy and Frank's Amboise itinerary and ate at aurberge de launay and les clouseaux. we found the auberge to be slightly better but geniunely loved the style of eating, kind service and slow pace. And the cheese was epic.
