Stylish Apartment, Great Location, Responsive Owner

  • 5 of 5

Owner Pascale Reisinger Houdayer has done a wonderful job of renovating this historic building into 3 apartments, one on each floor, creating a contemporary feel while retaining antique details. She speaks English well and was responsive by email to questions both before and during our stay.

We stayed in the middle apartment up one flight of stairs from ground level. The entry is into a large kitchen/living area. The kitchen is very well equipped, with an induction stove top, oven, microwave, a refrigerator larger than typical under-counter units, a separate small freezer, dishwasher and American style drip coffee maker. There is a small dining table.

Due to the location of the building's stairway, the apartment layout is a bit unusual. Through a door from the main living space is an attractive shower room with dual sinks. The bedroom is beyond the shower room, and a door from it leads to a small toilet room with hand washing sink and washer/dryer combination. Heat and hot water were plentiful (we were there in mid-November). The bed was comfortable and linens and towels were high quality.

We liked the location on pedestrian-only (during shopping hours) rue Nationale, which runs from Chateau Amboise to the basilica. Your car can be parked on the street between 7 p.m. and 10 a.m., and all day on Sundays and Mondays when stores are closed. If you don't wish to have to move the car before 10, free parking is available nearby at the basilica or near the river.

I prefer to stay in smaller towns like Amboise (population a little over13,000), which to me represent the “real” France – although Amboise is more dependent on tourism than some other places we have stayed – and are easily walkable. Amboise has a large open-air market on Sundays by the river, and a smaller market on Fridays. There is a small Carrefour City supermarket a few minutes walk away; a large Leclerc supermarket on the ring road outside of town, and a large Intermarche supermarket across the river. There are three boulangeries on rue Nationale, including one diagonally across the street, and other food shops nearby. The English speaking travel information office had a discount offer on one of the chateaux on our list, and provided helpful information.

Beautiful apartment in Amboise

  • 5 of 5

The apartment on Rue Nationale in Amboise is exactly as pictured on the VRBO site. Central location, excellent helpful host in Pascale, well outfitted for comfort and function. Close to restaurants, morning bakery, on a pedestrian walking street with free parking close by. Excellent host, beautiful rental in a beautiful town in the middle of the

Loire Chateau country. Couldn't ask for more.

A Relaxing French Stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was incredibly fantastic. The decorating was stylish and classy AND what a location...walk to everything and feel the ambiance of a historical city. All kitchen necessities were there, and the double sinks in the large bathroom made our everyday preparation easy and without hassle. The bed was comfortable and better yet, the room was silent for excellent sleep. Our last and favorite meal was at the charming I'llot, recommended by Pascale. We suggest following her recommendations..they are all right on. She speaks excellent English, is pleasant, helpful and patient.

Thank you for making our September, 2017 stay a highlight of our French trip.

Excellent Choice

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from spending 4 terrific nights in Pascale's second floor apartment. The pictures are accurate as the apartment is decorated beautifully and was very clean and came with all the necessities . The apartment does not have an elevator but the climb up with two large suitcases was manageable. The location is terrific, close to all shops, restaurants, grocery stores and free overnight parking. Pascale is a terrific host and was there to meet us upon our arrival and the bottle of chilled white wine was so appreciated. Renters do need to be aware that the street is closed to vehicular traffic certain hours of the day and you may want to list that information in the apartment guide book. And though our stay was bearable, you may think about putting in some wall mounted air conditioning units., as we found it difficult to sleep with the windows open due to flying insects. But given the chance to stay in Amboise again I would certainly stay again in the apartment, as long as it wasn't the middle of the summer.

P.S- don't be afraid to recommend the Chinese restaurant (Le Pekin) around the corner from the apartment to your American tourists, as sometimes we just need a taste of home :-)

Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't ask for a nice place to stay in Amboise. The apartment was immaculate in condition, cleanliness, and decor. It's in a great location within 10 minutes walking to any tourist destination in the town. Bedroom is in the center of the apartment, so it is very quiet with no street noise. Decor is fully modern and fun. The combo washer-dryer was also very nice to have if you're on an extended stay. Pascale was great and gave us ideas for restaurants and town events. Don't miss the open market in Amboise on Saturday morning- it's a 5 minute walk from the apartment!
