A lovely apartment in a super location

  • 4 of 5

Firstly let me say that Elisabeth was a total delight to deal with in advance of our arrival, her communication was so very prompt and helpful. We didn't get to meet her on arrival unfortunately as she was away but had left us in the very capable hands of her friends Michéle and Jacky who were equally delightful and very helpful indeed. Elisabeth had very kindly left us a gift of homemade jam and a bottle of wine which we thought was both very kind of her and totally delicious. The apartment is in a super location and we were very glad of the parking even if it was a good 7 minutes walk away. Inside the apartment is delightful, beautifully appointed and very well equipped with so much thought having been invested into its design and decor. Just a couple of small points - the shower was a little dirty with a lot of mould around the base which I had to clean with bleach before we could use it and the floor (especially the kitchen) was badly in need of a wash, looking at the otherwise very good general state of the apartment, I would suspect this was an oversight on the part of the cleaner rather than Elisabeth herself. Once I had personally rectified these points all was totally fantastic. Michéle (the friend) was equally as delightful and helpful on the morning we left. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment or in fact visit again. Were it not for the shower / floor this would certainly have been a 5 star rating or 4.5 if that facility were available

Owner's Response: Merci pour votre appréciation. Je suis vraiment désolée pour les désagréments que vous avez eus. Il est vrai que les petites tâches noires sur les joints en bas de la douche nous posent problème.Même en frottant celles-ci avec du désinfectant,nous avons beaucoup de mal à les faire disparaître sans arracher les joints. Pour la cuisine c'est certainement un oubli car les sols sont lavés avant l'arrivée de chaque vacancier. je serai vigilante, c'est promis J'espère que cela ne restera pas un trop mauvais souvenir et que j'aurai peut-être le plaisir de vous accueillir une autre fois. Bien cordialement. Elisabeth Thank you for your appreciation. I'm really sorry for the inconvenience you had. It is true that small black spots on the joints down the shower we have problems. Even by rubbing them with disinfectant, we have great difficulty make them disappear without tearing joints. For the kitchen is certainly an forgetting because the floors are cleaned before the arrival of each holiday. I will be vigilant, I promise I hope it will not stay too bad memory and that I may be pleased to welcome you again. Best regards. Elisabeth

Elisabeth was the perfect host.

She was very patient with all the questions we had before we booked. She provided very detailed and accurate description information of the apartment, parking, directions and amenities such as the restaurants, patisserie, markets; and went so far as to offer help with our bags.

The apartment was exactly as described. It was spacious, clean, and provided everything we (us and our two teenaged girls) needed from linens to the cutlery. The apartment is located just around the corner from the chateau and restaurants, but is far enough away to ensure a quiet and peaceful night's rest. Being at the centre of the Loire, it was also the best location for all of our trips to chateaux, and historic city centres.

This is the perfect French village experience with all of the modern comforts, and all of the charm given how Elisabeth has renovated, decorated and fitted the apartment. We would return and rent again from Elisabeth tomorrow if we could and have no reservations recommending her apartment.

Thank you again Elisabeth.

Beautiful flat in an excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 with 2 teenage daughters spent 5 nights in this wonderfully laid out beautiful 2 bedroom flat in the heart of Amboise. Elisabeth was so gracious to pick us up and deliver us back to the Train station. The flat is just as the pictures look and has a very comfortable homey feel. We cooked dinner ever night in the well equipped kitchen. The grocery store (Carrefore) is within walking distance and has everything you need--beer, wine, french cheese (we saved lots of $$ this way) The Amboise Chateau Royal and Chateau du Clos Luce are both within walking distance as well as the large Sunday Market. We rented bikes just down the street and biked to the Chateau De Chenonceau (30K) distance. The teenage girls loved the free WiFi and the fact that they had there own private room. We highly recommend this flat for it's location and ideal set up for families.

Delightful apartment in a deligtful town

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Elizabeth's apartment in Amboise. It was convenient to the pedestrian shopping district and included parking. We enjoyed the many chateaux in the Loire region from her apartment and had everything we needed.

A beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Proprietors Elisabeth and Claude were wonderful hosts! They were present upon our arrival, helped us carry our luggage upstairs and ensured we settled before they left (including a bottle of wine and jar of jam in the fridge!) They returned to bring a pack n' play for our two-year-old son, who loved the apartment and was able to play safely there. We had trouble with the water heater the first couple days, and Elisabeth was prompt in answering our messages and repairing the problem when we were absent. They loaned us a car seat when we rented a car to visit Chateau de Cheverny and insisted on driving us to the train when we left even though it was an early departure. When we arrived at the station, Claude stayed with us, helping with our luggage and navigating a new train departure for us with the attendant when a strike action threatened to add a transfer and many hours to our trip. We were so grateful for their help!

As for the building and apartment, the stairs were modern and wide, consisting of two flights divided into four half flights—my two year old had no problem on them (and neither did I, being 6 months pregnant at the time). The bathroom and kitchen were clean and well stocked. The beds were adequate for us, but if you need more support, you might not be as comfortable. The many windows and skylight provided lovely lighting. The location was very easy and walkable—grocery and markets a few minutes' walk away. We would certainly recommend this apartment and would return.

Great Fench Hideaway centrally located! So convenient

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very convenient for the castles, dining and shopping. It was decorated in a lovely French way. Elizabeth and Claude were so helpful. Told us about the town, and open-air market. We loved having the windows open but felt safe and secure.
