Overview

About the property

The Vernelle house is located in the park of the 'Château des Ormeaux' (it is a outbuilding of 'Château des Ormeaux') on the 'route des vignobles', near part of the Amboise agglomeration (6 kilometers from the Château d'Amboise).

A bit of history: The 'Château des Ormeaux' close to the Vernelle house was built during the reign of Charles X. The original Château was built on Paul Scaron's lands in the 17th century. Before marrying Louis XIV, the marquise de Maintenon was married to Paul Scaron.

The Vernelle House accommodation is a beautiful 17th century construction. It was completely renovated in 2013. It is a fine example of traditional wine grower's house surrounded by a terrace.

You will be charmed by the subtle mix of contemporary and 18th century decoration styles. The ground floor is composed of a spacious open kitchen with dining area and extensive work surfaces. The living room is large and comfortable with a TV and desk area. The sofa converts to a small double bed. For your great comfort, there is a ground floor WC.

The upper floor consists of two independant bedrooms (Queen size beds) with en suite bathrooms and WC.

The outdoor terrace comes equipped with a charcoal barbecue for outdoor meals in the shade of two lime trees.

The Vernelle will charm you by its peaceful setting with views over bucolic countryside.

I can't say enough about how wonderful it was to stay in the well appointed Vernelle Cottage. It was like a fairy tale with our own entrance and exit gate , peace and tranquility. The bedrooms with each having their own ensuites were beautifully done. The kitchen and living room areas were very spacious and decorated with old and new>very tasteful. The cottage is well situated in that you can get to all the Chateaux within an hour as well as some of the bigger cities such as Tours and Blois. The markets Friday and especially Sunday are wonderful in Amboise. Pascale was a delightful hostess and very welcoming along with Jouffloue. Pascale and Pascal were very friendly and inviting and made you feel at home. We would love to go back. Having stayed in many VRBO'S around the world this one was a wonderful rural (not too far out) setting where you could relax in peace and walk up the path through the vineyards. One of the best ever. Thank you Pascale for the welcome bottle of Cremant ,figs and eggs . It was an awesome 8 days.

Excellent location and wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at La Vernelle was excellent. Pascale was an excellent host and helped us out several times with advice, reservations, etc. The house is as described. It is roomy, well furnished with ensuite bathrooms (we were three persons), quirky and entertaining design mechanisms (bright red fridge), and a gorgeous veranda (for when the weather is good). The wifi reception is adequate but you do have to be careful of where you are in the house. Once we learned that, it worked just fine. Pascale's guidebook and suggestions was a big help. She really is correct on which Boulangerie is to be used and which is to be avoided. Amboise is a great place to visit the chateaux to the East of Tours and that's how we used it. We saw four chateaux on that side of Tours in our week there. Amboise itself is very charming and interesting. We used the Sunday and Friday markets as sources of the food we bought to cook at "home". We especially liked the availability of the BBQ. High marks for La Vernelle all around. We thought it was going to be difficult to find, but the SatNav got us there just fine. Pascale also recommended a very nice restaurant in the area and made our reservations for us. It was just a great experience all the way around.

Unforgettable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

La Vernelle is a lovely, peaceful, cosy, charming and cool cottage. Mrs. Pascale is very kind and generous lady. We had a wonderful week cooking in the modern and warm kitchen over looking the terrace. Amboise is in a perfect spot to stay to visit the castles. We strongly recommend.

Wonderful stay in a lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in La Vernelle. The home is beautiful and Pascale was a welcoming and gracious host. We opted to prepare dinners rather than dine out in order to enjoy the outside seating and gorgeous surroundings. We were close to Amboise and visited five castles during our 4-day stay. We were able to easily drive to everything we wanted to see. Would love to return and stay in La Vernelle again!

The most beautiful design house!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Vernelle House is a beautiful renovated house full of design pleasures! The correspondence between the old house and the modern design equipment is heavanly.

In every corner you can see the understood and heart of a passionate interior decorator.

All the advices for caves, restaurants... were fantastic.

The location is perfect to visit all important chateaux other sightseeing points. It is great after a busy sightseeing tour to sit under the trees of "your" terrasse in the tranquility of Vernelle house.

Thank you Pascale and Pascal for the pleasure to meet you - you made us a wondeful holiday in Loire-Valley!

We can´t recommend the Maison de caractère high enough!
