two great days

  • 4 of 5

Tours is a very interesting city with many things to see and do. We had two full days of exploring the area around Lara's lovely little suite. It is clean comfortable and well situated close to the historic center on a fun Bohemian shopping street with lots of opportunity for eating, shopping and people watching right beneath your window. Parking was quite easy to find in the neighborhood close by and we enjoyed walking everywhere from the central location to all the sights and just blocks away from Place Plumereau the picturesque square known for its half-timbered medieval houses & lively open-air bars & restaurants. The only thing that may cause you to lose sleep if you are there on the weekend as we were, is the local pub nearby. Enthusiastic patrons can be noisy until the wee hours. All in all, our experience was a very positive one and our hostess Lara was delightful, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Overall; good value for your money!

Flat in Tours

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for a two week stay in Tours. It is conveniently located on Rue Colbert, a street with excellent shopping, restaurants and bars. It is a short distance from the shore of the Loire, which allows for great morning runs or evening strolls. The lively Old Town of Tours is a 5-10 minute walk. Lara is a wonderful and accommodating host. The apartment has everything you will need and she is available to answer any questions you may have or offer suggestions on places to see and things to do. The bikes are a great bonus!

Wonderful place to stay during our visit to Tours!

  • 5 of 5

Was a great location to be based for our stay in Tours! Walking distance to the the tourist office, the old town and the Loire. Handy shop downstairs, bakery across the road, and an Irish pub also across the road! Anyone looking at the property just has to be aware that it is necessary to climb from the ground floor up to the second which can be exhilarating, especially with luggage! First time I had booked a property directly with an owner and doing it from Australia added to the complexity. Lara was wonderful and helped along the way. Would definitely recommend this property!

Ideal situation

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was all that we hoped it would be and the charming owner was so nice to deal with right from the first enquiry we made, And she speaks excellent English.Her directions to the apartment were easy to follow as well and she was waiting for us on arrival. We were provided with suggestions and lots of literature covering the area.

The apartment is well supplied with crockery and glasses etc. and is very comfortable and clean. It is situated above a small supermarket which is very handy and there are restaurants, cafés and bars all around you. It is close to the river Loire and a bonus is that there are two cycles available for your use.

We would definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to friends.

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure to stay in this apartment. We were greeted upon our arrival by the owner who gave us excellent advice on things to do in the area. The apartment itself was perfect. It was extremely well presented and located in a great part of the town. The welcome pack for breakfast was most appreciated. We would certainly stay here again if returning to Tours
