There is no doubting the legend that is Leonardo De Vinci. This is a fascinating look at where he spent the last years of his life. As you walk through his chateau you can imagine his movements. The recreated settings are very good, and the...More

The Chateau was Leonardo's final home before his death. The chateau and surrounding grounds are beautiful. A number of rooms document his workshops and his many interests, accomplishments and breadth of his genius. Well worth the effort and time!

A must for any Leonardo da Vinci aficionado. While his grave is now in the Royal Chateau d’Ambroise it is worth the 400m walk up a slight hill to his residence where he spent the last three years of his life. I expected to have...More

Great with children. An interesting combination of classic french chateau/mansion along with Leonardo Da Vinci's inventions.

This is not a palatial chateau like most others in the Loire valley. Instead, it’s an attractive home of about 6 to 8 (depending upon how you count) rooms well-furnished with period items and items related to Leonardo’s life and work. In the basement are...More

Besides being a beautiful and historic home, the basement and grounds of this house contain full-size mock-ups of many of Da Vinci's unbuilt inventions. Wonderful large gardens as well.

Wish I had a little more time to explore the gardens and the grounds. Being in the space where Da Vinci spent his last 3 years was incredible. The room where he slept, the models of his inventions, his studio and tools and the gardens...More

I visited on a Monday, and there were very few tourists present. The 7 acres of gardens displaying Di vinci's genius as an inventor are among the most peaceful I have experience, on a par with the Rodin museum in Paris. A very lovely place.

Anyone who is interested in Da Vinci needs to visit the house where he died and to see his workshop and the style to which he would have been living. The gardens are beautiful and worth a visit. Gets crowded so would suggest visiting early...More

No problem. Lots of places in the gardens to sit and eat. We didn't do it ourselves but saw lots of others picnicking and wished we had too.

There are a small number of free spaces just down the road, next to a new pay parking area, which is not too expensive. There are signs to the chateaux from the ring road, and we found it easily.
