“La Petite Vigne” is ideally located in the historical center of Amboise just up the street from Leonardo Devinci’s “Clos Luce”, and walking distance to the Castle of Amboise and the renowned outdoor farmer’s market along the banks of the Loire river. The cozy cottage offers a private, independent structure with a large 450 square meter landscaped and enclosed garden, and a large deck overlooking the forest of Amboise. The deck faces South and is perfect for relaxing in the warm sunlight, reading, painting, yoga or just enjoying the view. If you are looking for “French Countryside” in the heart of the historical village, we believe you will be very happy at “La Petite Vigne”.
The wooden cottage was completely renovated in the end of 2011 and the gardens were professionally landscaped (a work in progress!) in the Spring of 2012. Amenities include modern appliances (dishwasher, oven, vetro-ceramic stovetop, refrigerator/freezer, washing machine), queen size (160cm) canopy bed, comfortable/convenient sofa-sleeper (140cm), modern bathroom with glass hydro-massage shower, LED flatscreen TV with 100+ including CNN, DVD Player (multi-zone), IPAD/IPOD speaker/dock and free internet WIFI and telephone calls to the U.S.A, Canada, and Europe.
The house measures 35 square meters and is an open “loft” layout with a comfortable bar type kitchen with four stools for rainy days. It is perfect for a couple or a small family, but we remind you that there is no separate sleeping area. It is full of sunlight and modestly decorated in white and natural colors lending a feeling of space and elegance. The main attraction of the property is the large enclosed garden and 42 square meter deck that surrounds the house with a Weber gas BBQ, table for four with umbrella, rocking chairs, sail awning, and plenty of space to enjoy the fresh air and magnificent view of the valley below.
Parking is available on the street in front of the house. A secured “cave” or storage area is available upon request for bikes (and wine!) on the street level. There is a narrow staircase to access the property. Therefore, we do not recommend “La Petite Vigne” for anyone who has difficulty climbing stairs.
