A friend and i spent eight nights at Les Cordeliers in early September 2016. The apartment was exactly as described: well-located, beautifully decorated, well-equipped, and comfortable. It is located on a pedestrian-only street. Just steps away is a street lined with restaurants of all kinds, wine shops, and a grocery store. Turning right on the street, you are about a 6-8 minute walk from the cathedral and musuem of fine arts. Turning left, it's a short walk to the Place Plumereau with its medieval houses and al fresco dining.
We were greeted by Fabrice's charming mother Helene, who made us feel very welcome and explained how everything in the apartment worked, as well as leaving us her phone number in case of problems or questions.
Like others, we used Tours as a base for touring the Loire Valley chateaux, and it was always a pleasure to return to our lovely apartment in the late afternoon and enjoy a glass of wine before venturing out to dinner.
I would highly recommend Les Cordeliers to anyone planning a trip to the Loire Valley.
