Au Charme Rabelaisien: A Boutique Hotel Right Near the Royal Château d’Amboise

‘Au Charme Rabelaisien’ is located in the historic district of Amboise, just a 5 min. walk from the Royal Château and only 30 min. from Tours. Originally a B&B, this 18th century residence has just undergone a major renovation and expanded into a boutique hotel, complete with a heated outdoor swimming pool, sauna, spa and fitness area and 10 elegantly-decorated and comfortable rooms.

The hotel has received awesome across-the-board reviews on top online travel sites. It’s ‘relaxed, quiet and luxurious and a short walk away from a lovely town – a treat away from home’; the rooms 'spotless' with 'large comfy beds, overlooking the sparkling clean pool and lovely private grounds with beautiful climbing roses’ or ‘with an incredible view of the château’; the ‘breakfast divine and the coffee and croissants the best I ever had in France’. 

But it’s Mme Sylvie, the owner, and her staff that get the lion’s share of the compliments: ‘they provide a warmth and charm that just can’t be duplicated by the larger hotels’; ‘Efficient, friendly, kind and helpful – Mme Sylvie is the picture of a perfect hostess, an expert on the area and in picking great dining spots off the beaten track’.

In sum: ‘A wonderful experience’; ‘Pure perfection – I can’t imagine staying any place else’ or ‘Book it, you won't be sorry’. 

Let’s face it, you can’t get much better than that!
