The Loire Valley Sights

Pagode de Chanteloup

Fodor's Review

Just 3 km (2 miles) south of Amboise on the road to Chenonceaux, the Pagode de Chanteloup is a remarkable sight—a 140-foot, seven-story Chinese-style lakeside pagoda built for the Duke of Choiseul in 1775. Children will adore puffing their way to the top for the vertigo-inducing views, but some adults will find the climb—and the 400-yard walk from the parking lot—a little arduous. You can rent a little row boat (€5 per hour) to float across the adjoining lake.

This is worth a quick stop if you're in the area already.
