Amboise (and surrounds) on a Sunday

The last time we were in Amboise was about 10 years ago. We arrived late afternoon/early evening on a Sunday. I remember almost everything was closed down including restaurants. Can anyone tell me if this has changed and whether we would be able to find stores and restaurants opened on a Sunday afternoon and evening?

If we were to drive the area- visiting chateaus- would we find any restaurants in the small towns open for lunch?

Thank you, in advance.

No shops or restaurants (barring the very smallest shops) will be open on Sunday afternoon. There will probably be a cafe open, but none of the restaurants will be open between closing after lunch until dinner time (probably 7.00 pm.)

There will be some restaurants open for lunch in smaller villages, but you should check first.

Sunday lunch tends to be the biggest "event" of the week for most country restaurants with whole families lunching together. It may not be so much a question of whether restaurants are open as to whether they have unreserved tables.

It isn't unusual for restaurants to close Sunday evenings and all day Mondays.

There was a fast-food restaurant which opened seven days a week as I remember, selling burgers and chips, etc.

Not a good choice, but at least you can get some food, haha.

A small supermarket should be opened on Sunday also, am not sure.
