Luxury hotel holiday Le Choiseul Loire Valley

Le Choiseul is a four-star hotel in a town mansion dating from the 18th century, situated on the banks of the River Loire in the historic town of Amboise. The hotel has pretty gardens and bedrooms in both the main building and several houses around the gardens. The restaurant with Michelin-star has views of the river. The atmosphere is traditional and cosy, and as the 28 bedrooms vary in size, if you are staying here for more than a night or two, we recommend that you upgrade to a larger room.

Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Le Choiseul, Amboise

Le Choiseul is an elegant hotel with 28 rooms and suites, situated in the pretty château-town of Amboise on the banks of the River Loire. The building dates from the 18th Century and is typical of many elegant houses of the region, with white-washed walls and grey slate roof. There is a main residence housing the hotel reception, lounges, restaurant and some rooms, and the other bedrooms are scattered between smaller houses in the gardens. An attractive feature of the hotel is the fact that the individual buildings each have their own little garden areas in front or near them so that you have the feeling of grass, flowers and trees wherever you are. The hotel has a one Michelin star restaurant, attractively situated on the first floor of the hotel with views to the front over the Loire and the garden. Bedrooms vary in size but are traditionally furnished in keeping with the rest of the hotel. The overall atmosphere is one of quality but at the same time relaxed, cosy and traditional.

About Loire Valley

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to the Loire Valley offers travellers a chance to explore this magnificent region, known as the `Garden of France`, traditionally the hunting grounds of the Kings of France, is renowned for its gentle countryside, vineyards, forests, rivers and numerous chateaux. At the centre of this region are the regal river Loire and its numerous tributaries, attractive historic towns and cathedral cities such as Tours, Blois and Chinon and of course the chateaux. The chateaux range from vast palaces to fortresses, from mediaeval strongholds to Renaissance delights and include the well-known ones of Chenonceaux, Chambord, Villandry and pretty Azay le Rideau. The vineyards offer great variety from sparkling Vouvray to the reds of Chinon and Bourgueil. Our `Loire Valley` covers the central region of Touraine and the more westerly region of Anjou as well as taking in a more southern part that extends towards Poitiers. The visitor to the Loire Valley is embraced by seemingly endless amusements whatever the time of year, enticing for longer stays and so well situated for overnight stops or short breaks. It is very easy to reach the Loire Valley by train, combining a holiday here with a visit to Bordeaux. Alternatively, a self-drive holiday to the Loire Valley is an excellent option, allowing you to explore the region's Chateaux by car or to combine a stay in the region with a holiday to the Dordogne region and Normandy.

Highlights of the Loire Valley

Cultural highlights include wines and wine vinegars, wild mushrooms - (visit the mushroom museum), the Troglodyte caves, and local art exhibitions.
