The Manoir counts 10 personalised rooms, refined lounges, and a heated pool. We are within walking distance of the old town centre of Amboise, the Chateau Royal and the Chateau du Clos Lucé, the last home of Leonardo de Vinci. Experience the art of living at the Manoir Saint-Thomas, where we value authenticity, service, and a warm welcome. Behind its magnificent renaissance façade is a charming hotel full of delightful details where every room speaks of the history of Amboise, the fireplaces, grand staircass, dressed stone turret, painted ceiling beams, and panelling: the charm of the past at one with the contemporary world.
The name Saint-Thomas dates back to a priory founded in 1107 by Hugues I of Amboise, the most powerful lord in the Touraine region after the Count of Anjou, who then gave it to the Abbaye de Pont-Levoy.
The house, which was later to become the Manoir Saint-Thomas, belonged to Jean Rouer, an officer of the King's Court, at the start of the 18th century. He had married Catherine Pommiers in the "Saint-Thomas Priory chapel" in 1685.
In 1726, his daughter received the "building in the Great Market on Saint-Thomas priory" as a dowry. In 1776, she sold the building (two corps de logis and a courtyard with large double doors, all enclosed within walls which stretched north along the Amasse) to the Pathault family who would own it until 1986. At the end of the 19e century, extensive renovations were carried out. Visitors can still admire the ceiling in the great hall signed "Ripault 1887 Tours". In 1986, François Le Coz bought the property and converted it into an internationally renowned gourmet restaurant.
Isabelle and Alain Sohn took over in 2013 and started work on an ambitious programme of renovation and modernisation. It was then that this exceptional building became a high-end hotel - the pride of Amboise.
