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.
All mod-cons provided so really a home-from-home only in a cave! Secure off-road parking for the car and a property that is well-placed for easy daily trips out to the local Chateaux and a good walk from here into Tours (6kms round-trip) for the energetic. Plenty of local wineries, I can highly recommend Moncontour (thanks to Annick & Bernard). Our hosts were very attentive and always on-hand if needed. There are local shops for supplies especially bread and pastries, of course.
