Hôtel Le Clos d'Amboise - Val de Loire - 27 Rue Rabelais - 37400 Amboise - +33 (02) 47 30 10 20 - infos@leclosamboise.com


Right next to the Royal Castle, it is a sumptuous 17th century house converted into a 4-star character hotel in 2003 and entirely refurbished in 2011.

Everything which speaks of the house’s history and gives it its character has been conserved: the floor of the reception hall with its cabochon tiling, the staircase serving the upper floors, and the magnificent 18th century Versailles oak parquet in two salons. The wood panelling, the mullioned windows, and all the fireplaces have been preserved, often with magnificent gilt-framed mirrors.

In the converted attic, a long corridor with exposed beams serves rooms where the roof trusses can be seen. In 2011, the owners installed a lift which stops at the main house’s two floors and at the basement which leads to the sauna. The stables converted into guest rooms have kept their exposed beams.
