Overview

Amboise Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Welcome to "Villa La Loire" ! This large and attractive apartment has a side view on the Castle of Amboise, and looks directly out on its fortifications and the "Tower des Minimes". Its quietness, the vicinity of the Loire river, visible from the apartment (just 50 meters from the house), and its private garden will charm you. The house itself , that dates back up to the 17 th Century ( some peope say 16 th Century), is located in a small street, in which are only two houses, our own house and the Manor of the Minimes, which is presently a four stars hotel. The latter and our house were part of the land of the Congregation of the Minimes, the ancient oratory of which stands along the cliff, in our garden.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome

Perfect location and perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a true gem! It is located on the fully renovated top floor of an old house that is right below the Amboise Chateau and has a beautiful view of the castle from several windows. There are three bedrooms with plenty of room for everyone-- we had seven people and had an extra bed we didn't even need! The sheets and towels were really nice, and the eating/sitting area was spacious and nicely appointed with comfortable chairs and couches. The kitchen is small but very functional. There is a clothes washer so we were able to do laundry easily and dry the clothes on a drying rack. There are two bathrooms-- each with a shower. There is a place to park one car right outside the house and plenty of street parking nearby if needed for any extra cars. The owners are both kind and knowledgeable and very, very helpful!! Both speak english very well-- which made things easier for us!

The location of the apartment is also perfection! We enjoyed a beautiful (and short) walk each morning to get our morning cafe and pastries for breakfast. The first day we toured the Amboise Chateau and also Da Vinci's house-- both were spectacular and a nice break from car driving. Thereafter, we took numerous short drives to see other chateaux in the Loire Valley-- but always enjoyed coming "home" at the end of the day. We also really enjoyed trying out different cafes and restaurants for dinner each night and truthfully had wonderful dinners every single night! If we return to Amboise, we would definitely stay here again.

Very charming

  • 4 of 5

This is a very lovely apartment in a very lovely spot, directly next to the chateau at Amboise. The location cannot be beat. You are steps away from the Loire River and downtown Amboise. Every bedroom has a view of the chateau. There is one parking spot on the property, which was very convenient. The garden was a wonderful spot to share a glass of wine with friends and watch the hot air balloons fly overhead.

The owners very helpful and flexible, especially as our flight and arrival time were delayed.

This is a very old, charming house. Original beams are visible throughout the living area.

Though the kitchen is quite compact, there were plenty of dishes and dining space for the 6 of us. The Nespresso machine and pods were very much appreciated!

This was a wonderful home base to explore the chateaux and countryside of the Loire Valley. Almost all of the major sites are within 30 minutes.

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the highlights of our trip. The apartment is in a great, central location to explore the town of Amboise and to branch off and explore other chateaus of the Loire Valley. The owners, Etienne and Veronique, are incredibly friendly and were kind enough to share the interesting history of their home and Amboise. Etienne even helped me to arrange delivery of a package. Can't say enough nice things. Great people and a great place to stay. Would recommend to anyone.

Charming and ideally located for visiting the Loire Valley

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment is located on the third floor of a very old manor house. The bedrooms have a view of Chateau Amboise which is minutes away by foot. It is furnished with comfortable leather furniture, comfy beds and many books and games. The only drawback to consider would be the stairs. It is 2 flights up and then there are several steps to navigate between bedrooms and bathrooms. It does have a washer, but not a dryer. Gracious hosts.

Excellente base pour visiter châteaux de la Loire

  • 5 of 5

Le logement est conforme à la description et est très fonctionel pour 5 adultes (2 couples et un célibataire). Il est idéalement situé dans le village d'Amboise, à quelques pas du Château, de restaurants, de patisseries, etc... où nos avons pu acheter nos croissants frais chaque matin. Le propriétaire Étienne nous a très bien acceuilli, fourni des renseignements utiles et même offert un bouteille de vin de son ami Ken. Nous avons eu la chance d'assister à la Foire des Vins de la Loire qui se tenait le 14 août au Château dans un décor fantastique. Très agréable séjour!

Exploring the Loire Valley from a fantastic apartment in the beautiful town of Amboise!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us, my daughter, her husband, my wife's sister, my wife and myself spent a wonderful week in this apartment. It is a lovely apartment and the views from the apartment windows are unbelievable. Each bedroom window has a direct view of the Amboise chalet next door. The town of Amboise is wonderful and so much fun to walk around in during the times we were not driving other places to see other chalets. We loved the big market on Sunday morning and the smaller market on Friday. The apartment is located near everything. There are lots of restaurants nearby. The renting of the apartment was very easy and all of our questions that we asked were answered very quickly. Etienne met us at the apartment and showed us around. The week we were there was the hottest week they have had but with the fans that were in the apartment and open windows we had no problems staying cool. We enjoyed the space of the apartment and appreciated having such a nice place to stay. We had rented a car on arrival in Paris so were able to go to several other chalets that were nearby. We loved all of the chalets and the flower gardens. It is a beautiful area! This is a wonderful place to stay for a great time in the Loire valley area. Would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to explore the Loire valley. It would be great for families with children also!
