Lunch near Amboise, Loire Valley

Jump to last reply

We will be traveling with two teenagers who want to see "the countryside" from Paris. I'm thinking of taking the train to Blois and renting a car for the day. We would arrive by 9am and depart at 6pm, so by the time we rent/turn in the car we still should have 7 or 8 hours touring time. This will be in November next year.

I think we would head straight to Chenonceau and spend no more than 2 hours there. Then time for lunch. Would appreciate some recommendations. We would love to find a country place, maybe with outdoor seating, not too fancy....more tailored to locals, rustic, simple fare.

After lunch, perhaps the Chateau du Clos Luce to see Leonardo's inventions. Then back to Blois to spend whatever time we have left. Does this sound do-able? Given the destinations I've described, can you recommend any particularly lovely routes to take?

I'm open to all long as it doesn't try to pack too much in. Thanks, everyone!
