This lovely holiday home for 4/5 people, with 2 bedrooms, one equipped with a TV with Play Station 2 with games for all ages and DVD player for children, 1 bathroom with large shower (100x80), American kitchen fitted and a living room, all in a neat and cozy setting, hidden in a 900 m² lush greenery with a small height park, down the road with the only access an outside staircase. Children can make the swing while you relax in the shade on sun loungers, and although in the town center with all amenities is a quiet and peaceful place. All its windows overlook the park the last home of Leonardo da Vinci 'Clos Lucé', where he often received visits from his friend, the king François 1st. The cottage is located in the most visited street of Amboise, in fact it connects to the Clos Lucé Castle, the way you can stop to watch the troglodyte houses still inhabited today. You can also enjoy hiking trails that pass in front of the cottage, along the route of the Loire Cycling. Amboise is the central point for visiting the Loire Castles: Chenonceau, Chambord, Cheverny, Blois, Chaumont and its fabulous gardens, Ussé (the Castle of Sleeping Beauty) and many more ....

You can also restore Tourangelles with specialties in one of the many restaurants 5 minutes walk from the cottage and enjoy in peace and Loire wines produced in our area. And later, visiting winemakers that will make you visited their cellars and taste their products.

Cottage on the Hill

  • 5 of 5

This property is a charming, very clean and well-equipped cottage on a little hill near everything. The owner has clearly taken pride in making it comfortable and livable, and the outdoor space is great. It is very quiet, which is amazing considering how close it is to everything. There are multiple tables and chairs outside so that you can dine in the shade or just outside the kitchen windows. Everything is close, and the town is very lively and interesting. We found great restaurants, many interesting things to see and do, and there are multiple parking choices just down the hill. Thank you Alexandra, we enjoyed your cottage!

Charming, old French cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Amboise at this lovely, adorably decorated home. is across the street from the home where Leonardo daVinci lived during his final years, and it is a short walk to the Amboise castle. The town is filled with lovely restaurants, cafés, and shops -- and the prices are lower than in Paris, for sure. Note that the home is not handicap-accessible, but otherwise -- it is comfortable, spacious, and well-equipped with everything you need.

Wonderful Gite!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Alexandra, for a wonderful stay in your gite! We really appreciate your warm welcome and the time you spent providing information and suggestions for the area. The house was beautiful and met our needs for a quiet, comfortable place to rest after a fun day of exploring the area. It is conveniently located for all of the chateaus that we visited. We will definitely recommend this place to our friends and would love to stay here again the next time we are in the area.

Schöne Woche in einem entzückendem Haus

  • 5 of 5

Ein kleines, aber sehr feines Haus: Das Haus ist liebevoll eingerichtet, die Vermieterin hat sich Gedanken gemacht, was ein Gast braucht. Großer Vorteil im heißen Sommer: die sehr dicken Außenmauern halten lange kühl (aber keine Sorge: es gibt auch Heizkörper für andere Tag). Die Lage ist gut: zwar hört man Veranstaltungen im Clos Lucé, aber dafür ist man in wenigen Minuten im Stadtzentrum und trotzdem in einer sehr ruhigen Umgebung. Anfahrt und Parken waren für uns problemlos. Wir würden das Haus wieder mieten.

Très beau logement, bien situé

  • 5 of 5

Très beau logement très bien situé: en face du Clos Lucé et à 8 minutes à pied du centre ville et du château. Nous étions avec nos deux enfants de 18 mois et 3 ans et demie et nous n'avons pratiquement pas pris la voiture car toute visite dans Amboise se fait à pied du gîte.

Super moment de détente

  • 5 of 5

Une maison très bien décorée, bien équipée et très agréable à vivre. Alexandra est une hôtesse charmante et a été aux petits soins pour nous. Nous avons pu nous détendre tout en faisant plaisir à nos petits enfants. Zoo de Beauval, Musée de la Magie, Safari en train à quelques minutes d'Amboise sans oublier le Clos Lucé en face de la maison.

Les quelques marches à monter ne sont pas insurmontables quant au parking nous n'avons eu aucun problème pour nous garer gratuitement même en période estivale.

Merci encore à Alexandra pour la qualité de son accueil et à une prochaine fois...

Martine C.
