About the property

large lounge, large bathtub, wide home cinema large garden in a quiet location

The Almond Tree Garden is a rare flat, located on the ground floor of an old 15th c. commandery. It has a large garden, a wide dining room, a wide bed, a large freestanding bath, a large cinema screen ... right in the center of Tours, and yet in an amazingly quiet location.

The flat is situated in the neighborhood of the Cathedral, near the most attractive spots in town. Within walking distance, discover the historical district, the Cathedral, the Grand Theater. The best restaurants are only a few meters away, and it will take you a few minutes to park in the adjoining private car park.

After passing the entrance, you will cross the courtyard and the garden before reaching your flat. You can lunch on the terrace, on the large table, or walk straight into the kitchen.

Why not indulge in a authentic Italian espresso, made with freshly ground beans in the coffee machine?

You may want to settle on the sofa to calmly prepare your day's schedule. The wifi fiber connection allows you to surf the Internet at high speed.

The large remote control allows you to lower the projector and manage the home cinema equipment. You can watch TV programs or blu-ray movies on the sofa or on a platform. Wireless headphones allow you to turn upside down.

You can also relax in the large freestanding bathtub. The bathroom is equipped with loudspeakers fitted in the walls, and with customizable mood lighting.

The flat has just been refurbished with quality material and equipment:

⁃ solid oak flooring

⁃ Furniture made to measure from Cambodian Dau

⁃ marble basins

⁃ travertine mosaics

⁃ fashionable stone radiator

⁃ mechanical ventilation guaranteeing a year round maximum temperature of 22 ° C (72 ° F)

⁃ built-in trunks in the platform to store luggage away

Historical information:

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.
