Then you will be welcomed in Caves Duhard established in 1874. Its owner and winemaker Daniel Gatay is specialized in mature Vouvray wines. You can discover a large range of vintages, from 1947 to our days. Made of chenin blanc the Vouvray is a mineral wine with a high acidity level which gives the wine a great aging capacity.

After lunch, you will visit the Royal Castle of Amboise, the residence of François 1st. Here you will discover perfect examples of the transition from Gothic to Renaissance styling, as well as Saint Hubert Chapel which shelters the final resting place of Leonardo da Vinci.

Finally, head to the Manoir du Clos Lucé, really close to the Royal Castle. Leonardo da Vinci lived and worked here from 1516 until his death in 1519. The Manor is a renaissance style house nowadays home to various of his work and miniature inventions. Discover his invention room, displaying models of his spectacular models such as the fabulous flying machine, ancestor of the helicopter. By the end of your tour your driver will take you back to your place of stay.
