Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Amboise - The Coachman's House

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2 to 3

You will be charmed by this tastefully decorated 1 bedroom apartment (located on the Ground floor of the townhouse, there is one apartment per floor). We have taken a lot of time and effort in restoring this 18thC townhouse, combining old and new styles for (what we believe is) a tasteful result. We have paid particular attention to the comfort of our guests when choosing such essential elements as the beds and furnitures.

Located on a quiet portion of the pedestrianized main street (rue Nationale). Within easy walking distance from everything that makes Amboise an excellent holiday town.

A bit of history: Rue Nationale, now a pedestrian street full of charming shops and spots for eating/drinking, was in former days the road that lead away from town (the gate in the medieval ramparts is still there, now with a clock and called the “belfry”—look to the left as you exit the house). In the eighteenth century, the stage coaches for Tours and points beyond left from the house next door, and our house was the lay-over accommodations for the coachmen. The livery for horses and coaches was a bit farther down the street, in the courtyard behind the present-day cinema. And whereas the roughnecks of yesteryear probably slept on straw pallets, and with no privacy, we now invite you to enjoy your own private space, with comfortable bedding and full modern amenities.

- Historical sites: 13th C St Denis church, Royal Amboise castle, home to François 1er and other kings of France, the Clos Lucé, last residence of Leonardo da Vinci and historical old town center streets.

- Gourmet restaurants, excellent weekly open air Market on the banks of the Loire, featuring local specialties: Cheeses, wines, meats and local produce.

- Bakery, newsagent, supermarket (open 7am-10pm) Mont-Sat, delicatessens, boutiques.

During the summer months, the town is a hive of activity: night-time open air Markets, street performers, local artists exhibitions, open air swimming pool on the Ile d'or nearby.

A short drive will take you to: Chenonceau castle, Chambord castle (all main Loire valley castles).

Do stay here if you ar e in Amboise...unless I am there

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely love this place. More than that, I feel like I have a friend in Pascale, who could not have been more helpful and sweet. She tolerated my poor French and gave us great recommendations where to go for the best food in town. L'Horloge for baguettes. The patisserie across the street for croissants. The apartment is all we needed including washer dryer. Get instructions on the oven and cook top if you are cooking. Pascale speaks great English so is very helpful, even when we had arrived late, too stressed to attempt speaking French. Spotless, cuter than anything, this apartment is smartly laid out and decorated. I could live here for a very extended time. Not too often I want to stay longer or come back to the same place. I will send any friend here to the Coachman's House. No reservations about Pascale's Coachman House.

Self contained

  • 5 of 5

Great self contained apartment in the centre of beautiful Amboise. Pascale kindly collected met us at the train station, she also took us back there when it was time for us to leave. Clean, comfortable apartment, modernised in a wonderful old building. We stayed upstairs in the attic apartment, with a nice lookout front, back and side. Quiet, warm but also plenty of windows to open if warm. Would highly recommend

Perfect stay in Amboise

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at The Coachman's House could not have been better. Communication with Pascale was excellent from start to finish. All of her recommendations were great, and she was available to answer questions whenever we needed her. The apartment was exactly as pictured, clean and comfortable. Very well located on a pedestrian street, with everything you could want available within easy walking distance. The very nice ladies at the Italian shop a couple of doors away made sure we had nice strong cappuccino to go with the pastries we got across the street as a good start to our mornings. We really enjoyed our visit to Le Chateau du Clos Luce. Amboise is a nice quiet base for exploring the Loire Valley. If we return to the region, we hope to stay here again.

Perfect apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spot for a perfect vacation in such the lovely town of Amboise. Pascale was so professional and great at communication. I would highly recommend her lovely apartment. It was a perfect size for us and we were thrilled with the location. Amboise is so lovely and a perfect spot to enjoy the surrounding area. The apartment was so nicely decorated and immaculately clean. Thanks Pascale for making our stay so enjoyable!!!

Great accommodation in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived early afternoon after an overseas flight and were greeted by Pascale who showed us the apartment and all of it's features. She also took some time to go over some tips on local tourist sites and places to eat. The apartment was everything we expected. It was quite modern, efficient and very clean.

One of the places Pascale told us about was the bakery across the street. The croissants and other breakfast items were very good and I went there first thing every morning to pick up our breakfast. Amboise is a nice town central to the area and served as a good base for our touring around. There are lots of good restaurants in town including one right next door. It was great staying on Rue Nationale as it is a pedestrian only street during the day and low volume traffic at night, great for walking from the market to the various shops and restaurants.

This was a great choice for our vacation and would definitely recommend it.

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting directly through VRBO. Pascale answered our request promptly. She forwarded a simple, straight forward rental agreement and we paid our deposit through PayPal. This apartment is great value.

The apartment has been professionally renovated with high quality lighting, fixtures and appliances. Very efficiently laid out which gives you lots of space. Everything you need is provided. It was very clean and well maintained. The bed was very comfortable. Pascale was very flexible on our arrival time and was available by email and cellphone. She showed us around the apartment and gave instructions on how items worked as well as a binder with instructions and recommendations.

It is on a pedestrian only street but there is lots of free parking within an easy 5 minute walk. There is a wonderful bakery across the street where you can buy fresh croissant every morning for breakfast. The apartment is an easy walk to lots of dining and shopping options including a food market for groceries.

It is a great location to visit the area Chateaus. We rented bicycles and enjoy a lovely day on the paved trails that take you along the Loire river and through small towns and vineyards. The Royal Amboise castle is well worth a visit.

I would highly recommend the Coachman's House apartments. Pascale was a pleasure to deal with.
