Quiet, comfortable, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in Alexandra's home for 3 nights in July. We found it to be perfect for our needs. There was plenty of room for us all (my husband and myself, our 2 teen children, and my brother) and space to all be together or have privacy. The home is located a short walk from the center of Amboise and just a hundred meters from Chateau du Clos Luce. While there was some foot traffic outside during the day, the nights were very quiet. Alex was easy to work with before arrival and was a wonderful host and showed us everything we needed to know about the home.

The pictures are accurate and the home is very clean and pleasant. The kitchen is well appointed and the beds are comfortable. Plenty of towels were provided and we had everything we needed. There is a large clothes washer and separate dryer in the kitchen area and the 3 showers all had plenty of hot water and good flow (even when used at the same time). The upstairs bedroom has an en-suite separate toilet and room with shower and sink. The two bedrooms on the bottom level have 2 bathrooms, each with toilet, sink and shower, in the hallway between the rooms. As mentioned in other reviews, this is a 3 story home with curving stairs and some low beams in the ceiling. We had no problem with this and loved the charm of the exposed "cave" walls. The home stayed fairly cool even in the heat of day and there were fans in every bedroom (thank you, Alex!). We left the windows open at night and it was wonderfully cool and quiet. We had a car and were able to park in the free lot a short walk down the street.

We loved our time in Amboise and only wish we could have stayed longer. We also had some excellent dinners right down the street at Chez Bruno, Restaurant L'Epicerie (be sure to get the escargot), and L Florentine. I recommend Alexandra's home without reservation for your Loire Valley stay.

We stayed here as a family of 3 adults a 3 year old and a 1 year old. House is huge and we didn’t even use all the rooms or bathrooms. We loved our stay and loved the location.

Unique house very convenient to Amboise sights

  • 4 of 5

It's a unique house with 2 downstairs bedrooms/2 baths, one upstairs bedroom and bath. It has a washer and dryer, plus dishwasher, which is great! Alex met us to show us everything. Beds are comfy. The location is walkable to almost everything in the beautiful town of Amboise! We saw fireworks on the river for Bastille Day, restaurants, chateaus, and gardens are nearby. It is next to Le Clos Luce, where Leonardo da Vinci spent his last years, and the garden there is beautiful and full of his inventions. The free parking space is very convenient! Alex is very responsive to questions, and when we texted her our arrival, she met us. It would be hard for someone with mobility difficulty, due to the stairs and layout.

Lots of steps. No bath on main level. No good way to get fresh

  • 3 of 5

Lots of steps. No good place to put cosmetics in bathroom. Hard to get fresh air in upstairs br. Kitchen nice. Living area nice. Close to dining and castle. Very interesting place and area. Parking not far away. Not good if steps are hard for you otherwise I would stay again.

Holiday June 2018

  • 5 of 5

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!
