Holiday June 2018

Suberb, every little detail has been thought through to make our stay memorable. Comfortable and excellently equipped in every way. Alex who owns the property met us on arrival and explained the basics leaving us to cope easily without any need to contact for the rest of our stay. Just a word of warning, the house is on 3 levels and occupants to need to be mobile!

Amboise, a lovely city and a lovely home to stay in.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property and its location in Amboise. The property was remodeled but it is so charming with its medieval characteristics. The limestone cave downstairs was delightful. The beds were comfortable, it was very clean, and stocked with everything we needed. The Loire Valley has many chateaus, wineries and Amboise has wonderful restaurants, places to buy food, and wonderful shopping. Thanks for welcoming us , we loved our stay.

This is an excellent property in a good location

  • 5 of 5

The property is on a narrow road leading to Clos Luce, Amboise and free car parking is 50 metres away. We were given a very warm welcome by Alexandra and she showed us all the equipment in the house. The house is on three floors with one bedroom on the top floor and two on the lower ground floor. The three double rooms have very comfortable beds. Shutters keep out the heat of the sun. It is about 5 minutes walk down to the town centre where there are good restaurants like Chez Bruno or Anne de Bretagne if you want quantity at low cost. I feel certain that anyone who stays there will have a really good time.

Great location in Amboise - nearly next door to the The Clos Luce!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed in this apartment while we visited several of the chateaus in the area. We loved Amboise and this was a nice home base. It is a couple doors down from The Clos Luce which my kids LOVED. This was the most unusual place we stayed in during our 2 weeks in France. There are small spaces carved in rock, a steep, spiral staircase, and the basement rooms definitely feel underground. I think older kids and teenagers would love this unit, but I would be cautious about bringing young children. We have a 2-yr-old and I was relieved we made it through our stay without any serious falls or bonked heads. Really, the location is great. I would stay here again - especially when my kids are older.
