A Excellent Accomodation in the Heart of the Loire Valley

  • 5 of 5

This house is even more lovely than in the pictures. It is very clean and well maintained and on a beautiful street very close to the chateau. Shopping of all kinds is available within easy walking distance. The boulangerie is directly across the street for fresh croissants in the morning!

We were four retired adults spending a week at the house. It could easily accomodate 3 or 4 couples. The description is a bit misleading in stating that there is "one bath". There is only one bath tub but there are 3 toilets and one shower as well. The common rooms are large, with plenty of room for cooking, eating, reading, playing cards, etc. The patio is also a very pleasant area to sit and have a glass of wine at the end of the day.

We spent a few days cycling to chateaux in the area. The bicycle rental shop is a short walk from the house and we were very satisfied with the bikes, accessories and maps. It is very easy to do this on your own without going through a tour company. Amboise is on the velo route. Anne was very helpful in organizing the bike rental for us.

Anne and Gregory were excellent hosts and we can't thank them enough for our wonderful holiday in Amboise! We would definitely go back and would recommend any of our friends and family to stay there too.

Great Accommodation! Wonderful Town!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this accommodation (family of four - daughters aged 6 and 4). It was clean, well-maintained just like in the photos. Anne was wonderful and both Anne and Gregory have done an amazing job on this house. Great location within the town, easy to walk around. Would recommend this place whole heartedly!!

Loire Valley

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfect for seeing the region's chateaus! It is three stories and newly remodeled. It has four full sized bedrooms, a full kitchen, living room, 3-4 bathrooms and many more amenities. The property is very nicely decorated and I would recommend it to anyone! The property owner has also been a great host!

Très agréable et situation idéale

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un long week-end très agréable dans cette maison conforme à la description. Très bien décorée, très propre, le souci des détails (jolie vaisselle, lits faits à l'arrivée, ménage compris dans le prix). Idéalement située dans le centre d'Amboise, tout se fait à pied, mais dans un bout de rue calme, loin de la foule. Charmante cour intérieure où l'on peut prendre ses repas. De plus, la propriétaire est charmante et arrangeante. Un vrai plaisir.

nuestra estancia en Amboise

  • 5 of 5

Estuvimos, en la casa de Anne Paillet, cuatro matrimonios durante una semana,como base a nuestro viaje por la ruta de los castillos del Loira,y la verdad es que ha sido maravilloso,espectacular....cualquier cosa que diga se queda corto.La casa y su situación es fabulosa,mejor que lo que se puede ver en las fotografías.La atención de Anne es sencillamente genial. Nos encontramos con todo lo que podíamos pedir,limpieza,intimidad, decoración....en fin , un lujo de casa y de propietaria que se lo recomendamos a todos los que quieran pasar unos días en una región bellísima y una casa espectacular.

Muchísimas gracias por todo Anne, y no me olvido de mandarte las fotos.Lo haré.Un abrazo muy fuerte de todo el grupo.
