Le Manoir Les Minimes Review

Picture-perfect and soigné as can be, this gorgeously stylish 18th-century manoir is lucky enough to preside over a Loire riverbank under the shadow of Amboise's great cliff-side château, offering a calm oasis in a busy town center. Set within its own compound, it looks like it's on sabbatical from a Fragonard landscape. Inside, the grand staircase, dining room, and main salon are all a-dazzle in daffodil-yellow silks and gilt-framed mirrors, with ruby accents of Louis Seize sofas and bergères. The "classic," more modern guest rooms in the Pavillon are pleasant enough, but try to spring for the showpieces, such as the Suite Prestige (in a stunning blue toile de Jouy), or one with a view over the Loire River.
