Paris to Amboise in mid September

Jump to last reply

Hello! My family is traveling from Paris to the Bordeaux area, with a 2 night stop in Amboise. I am deciding whether to rent a car in Paris and drive the Paris-Amboise portion, or take the train to Amboise and rent a car in that area on our departure Tuesday.

My children are both 11, and we leave Paris on a Sunday in mid-September (no choice, the apartment is only available until that day). I understand picking up a car on Sunday can be troublesome. Our accommodations in Amboise will not require a car while we are there.

We are stopping in Amboise as a side trip ,specifically to visit DaVinci's final home, Chateau du Clos Luce (my kids are very excited about this!). Seeing the Loire valley is some icing on our cake, as the brunt of our trip is in Bordeaux and the Sarlat/Castelnaud area (over 2 weeks total there).

Any advice on the Paris - Amboise leg? Or other suggestions? Go easy on me, this is my first trip overseas (and posting here). Thank you!
