Memories of Amboise tainted by poor customer service which spoilt our stay

  • 2 of 5

The apartment was a little dated but a good location near to the town centre and all amenities. Loved Clos de Luce and had an excellent meal at Chez Bruno.

Accidents happen but poor customer service ruined our stay. On our 2nd day we had returned to the apt to have lunch, get coats and car keys for our afternoon trip but we could not unlock the door. Feeling foolish we tried for 1/2hr before contacting host. She told us to try harder as she was in Boise and not going to Amboise until the next day. I rang again and was told again to try harder. 2 neighbours tried to help and agreed with us that the lock could not be undone. They rang the host on my phone, the host asked them to try again and then said she would send her husband, he arrived 1 1/4hr later and could not open the door. He organised a locksmith who arrived 2 hours later. We were cold and disappointed having sat in the garden for 5 hours. The locksmith removed the lock. Later that evening we were told someone had tried to break in but surely we had heard them and if we had told her she would have understood why we could not undo the lock. As we had been out all morning we are not sure how we could have heard them.

The next day we had a note pushed under the door to say the locksmith would arrive at 8am the next morning! Surely this was thoughtless for a holiday let? The new lock was fitted the next day but we decided to curtail our visit and left a day earlier than planned. The host did leave 20 euros " as indemnification" for our wasted afternoon.

Excellent central location.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is brilliantly situated for central Amboise, plentiful free parking close by and only a few minutes walk to the chateau and the centre of town with all the restaurants and bars. The apartment is large and airy with everything you need. Some of the furnishings are a little dated but all is very clean and well decorated. The owners are particularly helpful and welcoming.

Lovely little apartment

  • 5 of 5

Really nice apartment in a very convenient location. Very welcoming hostess, who provided us with bedding and towels (at short notice due to a car disaster!) as we were unable to bring ours as planned.

Light and airy living space and a functional kitchen. Lovely shower.

Such a great location - 5 minutes to the chateau and town centre and lots of places to eat and drink.

We had a great stay.

A perfect apartment for a wonderful week in Amboise!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely first floor French apartment met all our expectations and needs for a wonderful week's stay in Amboise. The owners were very helpful before we arrived providing information and very welcoming when we arrived by picking us up from the Train Station - and driving us back at the end of our stay. The apartment was quiet and relaxing with a lovely garden and a bike shed to store our rented bikes. We had three separate days cycling planned. Firstly, a loop from Amboise to see the Chateau de Chenonceau & back via the River Cher. Secondly, train to Tours to cycle to the Chateau de Villandry and train back. Thirdly, train to Blois to cycle to the Chateau de Chambord & back along the River Loire to Blois and train back to Amboise. Amboise is a great base with other attractions like Le Clos-Luce (Leonardo Vinci's house at the end of his life).

Delightfully French, very clean and well presented flat, in centre of town

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful first floor apartment with shuttered windows overlooking treelined mall. Pretty private garden to relax in after site seeing. Saw chateau of Chenonceau from a river boat. Explored the river up to Chaumont sur Loire. Enjoyed the atmosphere of the amazing town of Amboise and walks along the river and over to the island. A very interesting and beautiful place to stay.

Très bien situé et propriétaires très gentils

  • 5 of 5

Appartement très bien situé, a quelques centaines de mètres du Château d'Amboise et du Clos Lucé, les châteaux de Chenonceau et Chaumont sur Loire sont a moins de 20 minutes en voiture et les autres ne sont pas très loin non plus.

On trouve tout ce qu'il faut dans l'appartement.

Les propriétaires sont très hospitaliers.
