The climatic conditions of summer 2022 led the Prefecture of Indre-et-Loire to raise the level of drought alert throughout the department.
As such, the royal castle of Amboise takes measures in the context of the maintenance of the garden, reducing immediately the watering of the soils.
Daily consumption will thus be reduced by 30 to 50% until the end of the alert.
Amboise, architectural jewel of the Renaissance, dips its majestic silhouette into the Loire, a UNESCO World Heritage river.
A place of residence for French kings from the 15th to the 19th centuries, its destiny is inextricably linked to the history of France. Numerous literary figures and artists were invited here, like Leonardo da Vinci whose tomb is preserved at the château.
This royal château is thus the expression of French-style luxury.
From its balconies, its roofs and its terraced gardens, visitors can take in the Loire landscape and delight in what the kings enjoyed.
