About the property

Welcome to Tours "In the shade of the ginkgo"

We are proposing a beautiful flat on the second floor of an XIX century private mansion, in the heart of the historical district of Tours. Both ancient and contemporary furniture (1 queen-size bed with electrical mattress).

An ideal location to discover the multiple treasures and attractions of the city.

In a beautiful enclosed ornemental garden, an old ginkgo biloba, listed in the preservation city registers, brings shade and serenity to the mansion.

Very close the Vinci Congress Hall and "Office du Tourisme".

  • 5 of 5

"'In the shade of the Ginkgo' was fantastic. The apartment was clean, quiet, pretty and French and the hosts were extremely helpful and friendly. The garden was beautiful, even in early Spring and the location fantastic (very close to the railway station and tourist information). We could not ask for anything more. A great spot to explore the area's chateaus (tip: visit the Blois tourist office for cheap entry tickets and advice on public transport to the chateaus). We had a remarkable stay and will definately return when we can."
