Chateau De Amboise Stately Home in Amboise, Indre-et-Loire, France


The royal Château at Amboise is a château located in Amboise, in the Indre-et-Loire département of the Loire Valley in France.

Welcome to Chateau de Amboise

The royal Château at Amboise is a château located in Amboise, in the Indre-et-Loire département of the Loire Valley in France. Confiscated by the monarchy in the 15th century, it became a favoured royal residence and was extensively rebuilt. King Charles viii died at the château in 1498 after hitting his head on a door lintel. It has been recognised as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture since 1840.

This medieval fortress made way for a royal residence during the reigns of King Charles viii and François I (late 15th – early 16th century). The Court and numerous men and women of letters and European artists stayed at Amboise on the sovereigns’ invitation, as did Leonardo da Vinci, for example, whose tomb is placed today in the chateau’s chapel.

This renowned site for French history has an exceptional collection of Gothic and Renaissance furniture, a reference of the artistic finery in the first French Renaissance. After a visit of the Royal apartments and the imposing horsemen’s tower, the visit is prolonged by a stroll in the magnificent panoramic gardens overlooking the Loire river.
