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".
