Amboise (Loire Valley, France)
La Brèche restaurant hotel – set between the banks of the vast Loire River and Amboise train station – is the perfect place to bed down for a night or two and enjoy the region’s sites, chateaux and local cuisine. High-end and luxury accommodation options are abundant in this part of the Loire, but good quality budget options are harder to find. This hotel restaurant is affordable, comfortable and offers tasty food in a cosy restaurant.
The restaurant is traditional and charming, offering menus starting from €28 for two courses. Enjoy well-cooked local meats and fish teamed with seasonal vegetables, and desserts that add more exotic flavours into the mix (closed Sunday night and Monday). If the weather allows, the courtyard offers the perfect place to enjoy coffee, an aperitif or dinner, depending on the time of year.
Rooms are quaint (picture wallpaper lined feature walls) but comfortable, and are good value given the region. Enjoy fluffy bath robes and a comfortable sleep between dinner and a hearty breakfast (additional charge) the following day.
