Owners were very accommodating yet discreet. Our three children were a similar age to theirs and had great fun playing football in the huge garden and checking out the chickens (and trying to learn french). Pool was great. This is a fab location to explore many Loire hotspots - all very easy day trips (and cycle trips!). Amboise is a lovely town with huge character. We recommend this accommodation.
Property (which is 15th century) has been very well renovated with several hi tech features such as induction hob. It is small but cosy and I certainly don't think you could have more than 2 adults staying, not least because the bathroom is through the main bedroom.. You have to learn to duck to avoid the low beams! In summer it must be a lovely cool retreat but when we were there in October inside it was fairly dark as the windows do not face the sun.and we needed the lights on at all times.
Fabien, the owner, was very helpful and charming with useful suggestions of where to go.. Amboise itself is full of life and an excellent centre to visit with lots of restaurants and cafes, as well as several chateaux including Clos Luce where Leonardo Da Vinci lived. We would also recommend visiting Chateau Gaillard which has an amazing rediscovered and restored garden. Amboise is also well situated to visit many of the grand chateaux of the Loire. We visited Chambord, Chaumont & Chenonceaux and also made a longer trip to Chinon. The road system enables you to travel quickly along beautiful riverside or countryside roads.
I would certainly recommend this property particularly for younger, agile people.
