Great location in the centre of Amboise, yet still quiet and private.

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky on arrival to find parking right outside the apartment which is not guaranteed. The narrow one way streets add to the charm of the city, but can mean a bit of a hike with cases. The apartment is on the second floor which was fine for us, but may put visitors off if they are not comfortable with stairs.

The apartment is well furnished, comfortable and had good heating and drying facilities, which we discovered after a particularly wet day!

Elisabeth Spitz met us on arrival and gave us lots of helpful information about the local shops, one way streets and local attractions.

We would certainly stay there again if we are returning to Amboise.

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a darling apartment close to the chateau and very central. Elizabeth and her husband were wonderful hosts. They picked us up at the train station (and even took us to the grocery store) and then arranged for someone else to take us back at the end of our stay when they couldn't. (Hope you had a wonderful time in Nevada!) The apartment was very clean, well equipped- the nicest place we stayed on our 3-stop trip through France. Thank you Elizabeth- we had a great time!

The perfect base to visit the Loire

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 7 night visit to Elisabeth's property. It was hands down fantastic. I'll give as much detail as possible so you can decide if it's the right spot for you, but it was definitely the perfect spot for us.

I let Elisabeth know that we'd be arriving in Amboise around noon after an overnight flight. She was happy to let us into the property early and met us at the door. There was no elevator or AC (which is what you should expect for small properties in Europe) and it was not a problem. We parked our stroller in the secure front entry. The first two days were pretty terribly hot (96 degrees) and had that lasted our whole trip I might not have been so happy. But the weather normalized to highs in the 70s for the remainder of our trip and it was great. Elisabeth provided a high chair and crib for our two yr old son along with a welcome bottle of sparkling wine and marmalade. We tried sleeping in both rooms - pushing the twins together to provide us with more space and then the full sized when we noticed it provided a bit more support. We are really picky on beds both having back problems, and we found these to be fairly good given that it's a rental property and not a hotel. The house has a dishwasher and washer machine, which Elisabeth provided detergent for. We used the washer machine several times allowing us to pack lightly for our trip. The windows provided a lovely breeze. There was neighborhood noise, but in a nice way, not an annoyance. There are shades and curtains on the bedroom windows which provided near blackout coverage. Having designated parking was wonderful and the short walk to our car was a nice way to see a little bit of town. The location is fantastic - one street away from the chateau and lots of restaurants. If you aren't eating on French meal times (most places closed between 2 and 7 pm), there are good restaurants just around the corner that provide non stop service or at least earlier dinner hours. That was great given traveling with a small child. Oh, and lastly, about a week before we arrived I told Elisabeth that we planned to depart a day early so we weren't stressed driving up to Paris for a noon flight. She pleasantly provided us with a refund for that last evening, despite it being well within the cancellation period. I just can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this property. Thank you, Elisabeth, for such a lovely stay!

The center of Amboise

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a perfect location. It is conveniently located to restaurants and the Our stay at the apartment was wonderful. The location is great with easy walking access to restaurants and Château Royal d'Amboise is an easy walk. We drove and the parking although a good walk from the apartment worked perfectly. The apartment was well equipped with everything we needed for our stay.

excellent location, charming apartment and great host

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this two bed room apartment for four nights. We arrived at the train station around 9pm and was a little worried about how to get to the apartment. Elithabeth and her husband were waiting for us at there with their SUV. They picked us up and we stopped at the grocery store to get some essentials for the night.

The apartment was nice and charming with everything that we needed and more. The place is great for families with a fully functioned kitchen.

The location of the apartment is great, there are a lot of shops, bakery, coffees and restaurants around it. You can walk to the Chateau and the river.

We rented a car when we were there. Elithabeth and her husband showed us where the parking was but we couldn't find It the second day. However, we found a free public parking so we just parked the car there. There is a few minutes walk from the parking to the apartment but it was not bad and we love to walk around when I travel so it didn't bother us at all.

The only issue we had was we didn't know how to use the washer. We used google translator try to figure it out but still didn't know. It was too late to contact the owner so we just got our clothes out and air dried them with getting them washed.

The overall experience was great, we would definitely come back and stay there again.

Great place to explore Amboise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I started off a honeymoon traveling around France, and we loved this stay in Amboise! The city/town itself is a wonderful place to use a base to explore the neighboring chateaux, so it was ideal that the apartment had a parking space we could use as well (though it is a 5 minute walk away - very easy). The apartment was bigger than we needed, had easy WiFi, and was very clean. Cute view of the Amboise castle, and a great little kitchen that we used. The location is amazing, right by the main walking street of Amboise (highly recommend this location!). and communication with Elisabeth was very easy. Wonderful place to stay!
