The lovely Chateau d'Amboise in the Loire Valley


In the last twelve months alone, living a Travelife, I've passed by the town of Amboise in the Loire Valley twice.

And it's going to be three times, too, in a few more weeks, as I'm already booked at a lovely chateau in these same parts for summer holidays in July.

The Loire Valley is just lovely, especially on a fine day.

And among these, the town of Amboise is very charming and picturesque. It has many quaint streets and shops to putter around in.

THE VIEWS FROM UP HIGH,
FROM THE CHATEAU D'AMBOISE


Yesterday, we visited the Chateau d'Amboise that lords it up on a hill overlooking the town.

I've been before, but the companion wanted to see the views across the river and the town from chateau, as it was an exceptionally lovely day to do so.

So off we went to climb the chateau to the very top, for truly marvelous views all around. I'm posting some of my photos here, taken simply with my iPod.


HERE LIES A GREAT MASTER

By the way, not too many people know that the great master Leonardo da Vinci is actually buried here.

Yes, he's actually here in this very small and quiet town, buried in a very lovely chapel standing all by itself at the edge of the hill.



France is one of my favorite countries in the world, and the Loire Valley is just one of these regions you can keep visiting.

IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE

There are so many pretty chateau to stay in, and excellent local restaurants and wineries to discover.

It's also nice to just walk around without a purpose, just soaking in the glorious life around the Loire.

At least that's what I've been doing for the last 20 years, visiting the Loire Valley as part of living a never-ending, and never-endingly eventful Travelife.
