About Karine and Thierry

Karine and Thierry are originated from Amboise but spent a few years in London before returning to their home place.

They wanted to share their passion for the Loire Valley, and in 2002, they seized the opportunity to buy a 17th century townhouse in the most renowned street of Amboise, rue de la Concorde, directly facing the Royal Castle.

Karine is an interior designer and carefully renovated the Villa mixing tradition, charm and authenticity, without any compromise on comfort and equipment.

Thierry is the owner and manager of a Travel Agency, specialized in organizing “a la carte” tours in the Loire Valley.

Karine and Thierry purchased this townhome in 2002

Why Karine and Thierry chose Amboise

Villaconcorde is located in Rue de la Concorde, renowned as the most beautiful street in Amboise. Originally build in the 17th century, the Villa is part of the town heritage and used ot be the Notary's house at the beginning of the century.

What makes this townhome unique

'Wow ... I didn't realize Villaconcorde was so close to the castle !' is the usual comment of our guests when they arrive. It's in fact difficult to put it in words but you are virtually at the very door of the Royal Castle, which used to be connected with the house by underground passage 350 years ago...Not just 'a view on the castle' but the feeling that you belong to its history.

Because of its prime location, VillaConcorde will allow you to just walk to some of the main attractions such as the Château Amboise (of course !) but also Clos Lucé, the last residence of Leonardo da Vinci, and many other places... You will also appreciate the walking distance to the pedestrian streets, excellent restaurants, numerous cafés, boutiques and the local products market.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in Apartment 1 and found it to be everything we wanted and more. Making the booking was straight forward and we were able to add an extra night at short notice - everyone was most helpful. The apartment was extremely comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen, large comfortable bed, and having a washer/drier was a real bonus. It is situated in a quiet street below the chateau with just a short walk to the centre of Amboise. We were looking for a place to relax and Villaconcorde was perfect. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending a visit and I look forward to returning one day

Great Location in Amboise!

  • 4 of 5

Six of stayed in the "penthouse" apartment at Villaconcorde.

Great location. Castle Amboise is directly across the street! Great view and convenience to both the castle and the rest that Amboise has to offer (which is considerable)!

Living area, kitchen and downstairs bathrooms are very nice.

There is only one negative: The "loft" bedroom and bathroom are attractive, but the low, slanted ceilings are a challenge for people who aren't very short. That room might be best for children about age 6 to teens.

The owner was very friendly and helpful in arranging taxis for us.

The wine they have available is excellent!

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the apt for 3 nights in August. Although it was during the heatwave, we were able to stay relatively cool with the help of fan. I don't think that this would be an issue at other times of the year. The apartment is clean, well-equipped, quiet and is in a great location right beside the castle. Free parking is available on the street if you can find a spot but we used the town parking which was a short walk. Not much of an issue for us.

Very convenient to the restaurants and shopping. We attended the market in town where you can buy anything from roast chicken to furniture. Would highly recommend the apt.

Wonderful Week in Amboise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a very enjoyable stay in this apartment, which is especially suitable for couples. The apartment is on a quiet street with ample and safe street parking. It is within minutes of walk of rue Nationale and rue Victor Hugo as well as a Carrefour market. Claire was waiting for us at the scheduled check-in time, and she made for us dinner reservations at Michelin starred restaurants both of which are just a few miles away. We’d stay there again if we return to Loire Valley in the future.

A womderful holiday in a wonderful part of the World.

  • 5 of 5

Our week long stay at Villaconcorde in Amboise was wonderful. The Apartment is perfectly positioned in Amboise, immediately adjacent to the Chateau and within easy access to many other marvellous Chateaus and Castles of The Loire Valley. The Town Centre and things like the supermarket are just a few minutes walk away - perfect. The railway station is also in walking distance (20 minutes). The apartment is comfortable and comes with everything neccessary for an excellent holiday in this great part of the World. Our hosts were fabulous, the meet and greet was perfect and there was a really nice breakfast left for us on the first day (it lasted several days!!). Karine and Thierry can also offer excellent tours in the area. They also rent cars and provide all of the services that you would expect from a travel agent. We fully recommend Villaconcorde and Karine and Thierry to any one who reads this. Rod and Lyn from Australia"

Easter in Amboise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at VillaConcorde over Easter 2012 and had the most fabulous time. Karine organised every aspect of our stay from restaurant bookings to car hire which made our stay very relaxing and ensured we got the most from our time there. The apartment was lovely, and the location perfect for exploring Amboise and surrounds. We will definitely be back! Emma

Dear Karine and Thierry- Thank you so very much for making our one week stay in the Loire Valley a memorable journey.
