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 House 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 Apartment in 2002
Why Karine and Thierry chose Amboise
Because of its prime location, Air conditioning, 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.
What makes this Apartment unique
The icing of the cake is surely the stunning view on the Royal castle, transporting you back at the Renaissance period each time you look trough the window.

Lovely apartment at the foot of castle ramparts
We really enjoyed staying here, it was perfect for our family. Amboise is a beautiful town and within easy drives of a number of castles. The apartment is well equipped, and Karine & Thierry had their representatives ready to welcome us when we arrived. If you have mobility issues, be aware that the apartment is on the second floor and there is not an elevator. The third bedroom is in a loft (another flight of stairs) and has a roofline that requires you to bend as you go through to it. Parking is limited, but obtainable. Overall, a very enjoyable stay.
In the shadow of the chateau
This property had everything we wanted. It is an ideal jumping off point for visiting the chateaux of the Loire. It is a beautiful and spacious apartment a minute walk from the center of Amboise, but quiet. You look out the window and see the amazing chateau of Amboise rising above you. Karine is a wealth of knowledge and provided excellent dinner recommendations and made reservations for us. The temperature hit 105 when we were there. Despite having an apartment in the attic, the air conditioning units in the bedrooms and the fan in the living space made it comfortable inside. Overall a great experience.
Summer visit to Amboise
This property truly is stunning. One could not ask for a better location. The air conditioning helped cool the bedrooms and that was all that we needed, and was much appreciated after a stay in Paris with no air conditioning. The home has everything you need. Enjoy your stay.
Perfect spot in Amboise
This is the perfect place to stay in Amboise. It’s location is right on the river and across from the Château with a beautiful view of it at night. You can walk to it and all the restaurants right out the front door

Charming apartment with a fabulous location in beautiful Amboise.
After struggling to haul our luggage up two floors we reached our apartment. The apartment itself is charmingly decorated. The main level had two small bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. It also contained a shower/tub room and separate toilet room. Also on the main level was a large and well equipped kitchen, a dining area, and nice sized living area with small flat screen tv on the floor.
The upper floor loft area with all its exposed roof beams was a challenge to navigate but was as advertised with a nice bed and a full bathroom with shower and toilet. We wouldn't advise the upper floor for anyone over 5 feet tall.
It was very hot during our visit and the air conditioning was helpful in cooling the bedrooms. Not so much for the living area or the loft.
We enjoyed our stay here, the location is really amazing, right next to the walls of the Chateau. It was also very quiet since the main road was on the other side of the building from our apartment. Great gelato and pastries are only two blocks away and the grocery was only a four block walk. We were also happy that parking was easy.
We would be happy to come back here and hope to someday.
Thank you for your comment, and I'm very happy to hear you had a good stay.
In fact it was very hot when you were there, and now with the air conditionning in the apatment, I'm sure it's the best solution for the future.We just had it this year.
I hope to see you again,
Old World and Charming
We had a wonderful stay at the apartment. It was just as pictured and very clean. We loved the location in the city center, close to activities and cafes. It was a special treat looking out the windows at the Château d’Amboise Castle!
