Excellent location for touring the Loire Valley

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is called the Balcony of Leonard for a very good reason. The well situated terrace overlooks the last residence of Leonardo DaVinci. We parked our car by this terrace every day. We then entered a lovely upstairs space that included a bedroom, bath and living area with couch. A set of stairs led down to a spacious area that included a well equipped kitchen and living area with couch, large table and fireplace. We considered both the exterior terrace, with a spectacular view of Amboise, and the interior space to be excellent. It was also very convenient to the town. In the morning, we would walk to the bakery for coffee and croissants (among other treats) and in the evening we would stroll to one of the restaurants in the town. Overall a very nice experience.

Wonderful home in the heart of Amboise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 2 daughters, 5 and 7, and we loved it so much. The location couldn't be better - it is across the street from Le Clos Luce and just a couple blocks down the main road into town for restaurants, shops and the Chateau. We felt completely at home, beds were very comfortable, kitchen was well stocked, and we loved sitting up on the balcony at sunset watching the hot air balloons over Amboise at sunset. Jean and Annie were wonderful hosts and even left us a bottle of Champagne for our arrival which was welcomed after a long day of travel! We highly recommend this as a perfect home base for exploring Amboise and the Loire valley.

An excellent location to enjoy Amboise and the Loire.

  • 4 of 5

We located"Balcon Leonard" very easily and found a most convenient park for our camper-van in Impasse Moulin. Anne-Marie and Jean Paul were there to welcome us and show us around.

The accommodation is lovely, well equipped and very comfortable. By using the entrance via the balcony we had complete privacy. The layout was perfect for us, the steep open stairs down to the living area causing no problem. People with mobility issues or with young children may find this quite difficult.

The location of the Gite gives easy access to the town's pedestrian area, cafes and shops.

The large Sunday market along the river is a great place to find local delicacies. The two main attractions of the Chateau and The Clos are virtually on the door step.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, particularly the balcony that gave wonderful views over the surrounding area and a great place for meals, drinks and enjoying the sun going down with hot-air balloons floating overhead.

Views over Clos Luce and the rooftops of Amboise.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Balcon de Leonard for 8 enjoyable nights. The house is comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. Everything worked well except the washing machine -- we found a laverie next to the L. Leclerc nearby. The house is well located to visit the area’s chateaus and witness the change from medieval (Donjon de Montbazon) to the Renaissance (Chambord). There is parking in front of the house that will test your skill in driving in reverse. Annie Mary and Jean Noel were gracious hosts.

Owner's Response: Après vérification nous avons constaté que la cuve de la machine à laver était percée suite à une mauvaise utilisation par le précédent client qui ne nous a pas avisé de ce fait' et nous avons donc changé la machine Nous regrettons cet incident

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This home had a fantastic location just steps from Clos Luce (da Vinci's last residence) and a few blocks from the heart of Amboise. It was an easy walk to Amboise Chateau and many restaurants and shopping. There was also a lovely market on Sunday morning down by the river. I would definitely stay here again if I was in Amboise.

It was a little tricky to navigate the streets first time we arrived, there is actually parking on the dead end street behind the house.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

Annie and Jean Noel's villa is a little piece of heaven right next to Le Clos du Luce! Walking distance to the heart of Amboise. Easy navigation to the best chateaux! They provided us with a wealth of information about the area and the villa was equipped with all imaginable essentials!
