We loved being right in the centre of Tours. they're were some drawbacks for us as mature adults.

  • 4 of 5

This house was a few steps to Place Plumereau with lots of activity and life. We spent a good deal of our time in the city even though we came to Tours to explore the châteaux. The apartment itself was on a busy street and very much so at night with several discotheques against us in across the street. We were bothered by that noise at night. I also fairness, we knew about the issue before we booked and still did book. We like the idea of being right in the centre. For adults in our late sixties, this was not the most comfortable of places. There was only one bathroom and it was in the 'cave' accessible by a 28 step spiral staircase. The kitchen was adequate. We ate all our breakfasts and most of our dinners around our own table. Parking was another issue. The only free parking was more than a 15 minute walk away. It was very popular and required 15 to 20 minutes of cruising back and forth waiting for a spot to open up. The second bedroom was a loft over the main room with severely restricted ceiling height. Despite these pitfalls that affected us older types, we really enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Vous avez résumé en quelques mots le charme et les inconvénients de cet appartement. Effectivement, comme nous le disons dans l'annonce il est, de part son emplacement et sa configuration, plutôt destiné à un public relativement jeune et sans enfants, qui va sortir dans le quartier pour en apprécier les activités nocturnes mais va pouvoir rentrer à pied. Je suis contente que, malgré les petits soucis que vous avez rencontrés, vous ayez apprécié votre séjour. Nous avons été heureux de faire votre connaissance.

  • 5 of 5

"Ante todo hay que destacar la enorme amabilidad de la propietaria, Catherine; quien hace todo lo posible por hablar un buen español. Además, a nuestro arribo nos estaba esperando puntual en el departamento, con el detalle de dejarnos una caja con alimentos para desayunar (mermelada, té, chocolates, tostadas, etc.) durante los tres días de nuestra estancia. El departamento es bastante amplio (bien podrían hospedarse cuatro personas), en particular el living comedor, que cuenta con todas las comodidades, y los electrodomésticos necesarios (si bien no tiene lavadora). Aunque el departamento no ofrece Wifi, no tuvimos problemas en navegar por Internet, gracias a un wifi del bar del frente, cuyo código nos cedió la propietaria. El departamento está ubicado en la zona más antigua y medieval de Tours (una zona muy linda, refaccionada recientemente), a escasos metros del centro histórico: Place Plumereau. Por ende, está muy bien ubicado para conocer la pequeña ciudad de Tours, y de allí viajar todos los días a conocer los distintos castillos del Valle del Loire. A 200 metros hay un estacionamiento subterráneo (10 euros por día), y a 600 metros se puede dejar el auto en la calle, de forma gratuita. Insisto en la comodidad del departamento. Cuenta con un sótano que es donde está la principal habitación de dormir (amplia, y con buena cama) y un baño bastante amplio; todo esto le da un tono exótico, pero muy cómodo, y sin ningún ruido del exterior (el departamento está ubicado en una zona de muchos bares y vida nocturna los fines de semana; pero no tuvimos ningún inconveniente con esto). El barrio es muy seguro. Hay dos o tres supermercados cerca.Sin duda cuando regrese a Tours, volvería a alquilar en este lugar."

  • 5 of 5

"Logement bien situé dans le centre historique de Tours, pratique pour profiter des nombreux restaurants aux alentours et de la vie nocturne. L''appartement est très fonctionnel, bien équipé, décoré et original. Les escaliers (particulièrement celui en colimaçon) ne nous ont pas posé de problème : en faisant preuve de prudence, on s''y fait très bien.

Il y a un peu de bruit en soirée dû à la vie animée du quartier mais le problème est facilement résolu par l''usage de bouchons d''oreille.

Le contact par mail avec la propriétaire s''est très bien passé et de manière très sympathique. Sur place, nous avons été accueilli par son mari, très sympathique, accommodant et qui nous a fourni toutes les infos nécessaires au bon déroulement de notre séjour."

Cuando llegamos la limpie...

  • 3 of 5

Cuando llegamos la limpieza del apartamento no estaba hecha, así que tuvimos que limpiar a fondo solamente llegar para estar un poco a gusto, incluso había pañuelos sucios tras el sofá, sin hablar de los pelos de otras personas en el baño y la grasa acumulada en la cocina. Al irnos dejamos el apartamento totalmente limpio, uno va de vacaciones no ha hacer de chacha. No recomendado para personas con vértigo y con problemas en las piernas, muchas escaleras y muy estrechas. El apartamento tiene mucha humedad, incluso tuvimos que lavar toda la ropa que habíamos llevado, a causa del olor que había cogido. La zona muy céntrica y muy bonita, pero con un gran problema, frente al apartamento, que es una planta baja con una sola ventana grande que da directamente a la calle, hay una discoteca y al lado otra, que abren de lunes a sábado. La gente hace mucho ruido, grita, llora, habla fuerte, todo a causa del alcohol, y se oye mucho la música. Todos los días desde las 3 hasta las 5 de la madrugada no se podía dormir ni descansar, fue un poco agotador. El coche se podía aparcar relativamente cerca y sin pagar. En invierno no se como sera pero no lo recomendaría en verano si lo que se desea es recorrer los castillos durante todo el día y descansar por las noches que era nuestra intención. Un poco defraudados con el apartamento ya que habíamos puesto muchas expectativas en el. Creo que el propietario debería explicar bien todos contras que tiene el apartamento.

Owner's Response: "le ménage avait été fait correctement, les escaliers sont mentionnés dans lannonce (avec précision non recommandés aux personnes qui ne peuvent les utiliser), lappartement est en RDC sur rue, cest précisé dans lannonce, la proximité du plein centre ville, des bars et des restaurants est notifié dans lannonce (le bruit extérieur fait partie du fait que cest en RDC et plein centre, on na pas dit que cétait très calme). Nous avons approté des modifications (pose de nouveau survitrage sur rue, aménagement dune chambre au calme, photo jointe). Mais nous ne pouvons assurer le calme dans la rue. Nous avons changé lintitulé de la location, essayant ainsi de précisant aux locataires que cest un logement pour personnes voulant profiter de lanimation entre amis en centre ville."
