Overview
More
The Pagoda, built in 1775, is a Chinese curiosity of pure Louis XVI style. Virtual reconstruction images show the splendour of the Duke of Choiseul’s palace, destroyed in 1823 by the “Black Band”. Quaint Chinese garden, its oriental plants and Chinese ornaments invite to meditate. Awe-inspiring panoramic view from the top of the Pagoda, “old-fashioned” outdoor games, boat ride on the ornamental lake.

The pagoda is quirky and cool and a great photo opportunity. If it were a 2 or 3 Euro entry fee I would give this 5 stars as it is I really struggled to give it 3 stars and only did so because it is...More

We stumbled on this and were glad we did. It's this cool old pagoda with a great view of the surrounding countryside. (After 152 stairs, I think.) It's an interesting diversion from most other sites you'll see and has an interesting history. Interactive games of...More

We were only expecting to see the pagoda and leave. The entry fee is fairly steep for that, however the staff have clearly done their best to make it worthwhile. Shop, Chinese gardens and games were all enjoyable for a group of people who would...More

While we were on a biking trip through the Loire Valley, we were intrigued enough by the Pagoda of Chanteloup to make a little detour and check it out. It was incredible! It's quite unique, with an interesting history in its own right. It's also...More

Had a very enjoyable walk round the small garden and larger lake, and then enjoyed the fabulous views from the pagoda. Very interesting looking at the photographs of before and after renovation. Very obliging staff at the shop. The wooden games are a bit worn...More

I was stunned by the elegance of the Pagoda as soon as saw it from afar. The beauty of it lies in the tranquility of the landscape and the thoughtful architecture. Built in the 18th century, the time when Asia was a wonder to Europeans,...More

The Pagode de Chanteloupe is all that is left of a once great chateau and gardens and we have been visiting it on and off since 2004. It's a great place for a picnic, away from the bustle of Amboise and the popular chateaux of...More

We just walked from the parking to the ticket office. The entrance fee was 10 euro and we just took a photo and left. I don't know if it is worth the fee.

Such a shame that the original chateaux has been demolished, it looked to have been spectacular. All that is left is the pagoda and some lakes. The pagoda is pretty high, and you can get right to the top. The views back to Amboise are...More

I can't understand the negative reviews here. This spot is both eclectic and tranquil. We loved the two hours we spent here! The pagoda is NOT a death trap. If you're afraid of heights, don't climb! Nevertheless, the panoramic view from the top is worth...More
