Charming, old French cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Amboise at this lovely, adorably decorated home. is across the street from the home where Leonardo daVinci lived during his final years, and it is a short walk to the Amboise castle. The town is filled with lovely restaurants, cafés, and shops -- and the prices are lower than in Paris, for sure. Note that the home is not handicap-accessible, but otherwise -- it is comfortable, spacious, and well-equipped with everything you need.

Wonderful Gite!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Alexandra, for a wonderful stay in your gite! We really appreciate your warm welcome and the time you spent providing information and suggestions for the area. The house was beautiful and met our needs for a quiet, comfortable place to rest after a fun day of exploring the area. It is conveniently located for all of the chateaus that we visited. We will definitely recommend this place to our friends and would love to stay here again the next time we are in the area.

Super moment de détente

  • 5 of 5

Une maison très bien décorée, bien équipée et très agréable à vivre. Alexandra est une hôtesse charmante et a été aux petits soins pour nous. Nous avons pu nous détendre tout en faisant plaisir à nos petits enfants. Zoo de Beauval, Musée de la Magie, Safari en train à quelques minutes d'Amboise sans oublier le Clos Lucé en face de la maison.

Les quelques marches à monter ne sont pas insurmontables quant au parking nous n'avons eu aucun problème pour nous garer gratuitement même en période estivale.

Merci encore à Alexandra pour la qualité de son accueil et à une prochaine fois...

Bien, mais...

  • 3 of 5

La maison est bien située, en face du clos Lucé, et à 1km du centre ville d'Amboise. Elle est propre, bien équipée et confortable, avec un beau jardin et de magnifiques rosiers. A cause de la météo, nous n'avons pas pu profiter des équipements extérieurs. Dommage !

Par contre, il faut informer les éventuels clients que l'accès de la maison est difficile : une quarantaine de marches bien raides à grimper avec les bagages et les courses, et le parking qui se trouve à 200 mètres, est complètement rempli par les visiteurs du Clos Lucé dans la journée. On ne trouve une place à coup sûr qu'après 18h30-19h. Sinon, il faut aller au parking payant.

Séjour très cosy à Amboise

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été accueillis par Alexandra, notre charmante hôtesse, qui a eu le souci de nous laisser une maison très agréable, soigneusement décorée, lumineuse, propre, fonctionnelle et idéalement située.

La literie était très confortable et la cuisine, bien achalandée.

La bouteille de Saumur bien fraîche et les confiseries ont été appréciées par petits et grands!

Lieu stratégique pour visiter Chambord, Chenonceau (à 20 minutes), Le Clos Lucé (face à la maison), Blois (40 minutes), Tours (25 minutes)...

Bref, une location à recommander!
