The house was built during the unification of the city of Tours in the 12th c., As part of Henri II Plantagenet's city wall project. It belonged to the Commandery of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem of Amboise. The oldest remaining parts date back from the 15th c. The main building is set over two storeys of vaulted cellars from which several underground passages are allowed to escape and find refuge, for instance in the Cathedral.
Joan of Arc is said to have stayed there when she came to Tours in 1429 to have her armor made by Master Armorer Colas of Montbazon whose workshop was in the same neighborhood, in the Rue Colbert.
The motorway exit labeled "Tours Center" on the A10 allows you to get to the flat in 5 minutes.

Thank you Jean-Philippe for a wonderful stay in your excellent apartment. Warm Regards, Jill & Harry
On our arrival our host Jean-Philippe met us with a warm welcome. Patiently he made sure that we were well informed about the operation of the modern appliances with which the apartment is well equipped.
Located in an interesting part of Tours close to the cathedral and many restaurants, the apartment provides a tranquil secure haven near the Loire River. Jean-Philippe has created a special environment and is clearly keen for his guests to enjoy it.
We stayed for one week and loved every moment in the apartment and in Tours.
Congratulations again to both of you! Sincerely yours, J-Philippe
It was an absolute pleasure to host Jill and Harry! They are so sweet and appreciative. Everything they do is with smile and "joie de vivre". They took wonderful care of the apartment. I hope you will have the same pleasure to welcome them.
Everything was made convenient and comfortable in the flat.....great attention to detail. Quiet location near the Loire and easy to find from the train station.
