Favorite thing: Troglodytes are homes build into hillsides, taking advantage of the limestone that undergirds the Loire Valley to burrow residential caves underground. Amboise has numerous troglodytes along its main streets. I didn't get a chance to go into any of those - I don't how it would feel to live like a bat.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
