Amboise bed and breakfast description

A once in a lifetime troglodyte experience.

'The Paquerie' is an exclusive and renovated 19 century vineyard style country house 4 km from Amboise situated in a 2 acre wooded park with a panoramic view of the Loire Valley. Therese and Brian (Retired Airline Pilot) propose to accommodate you in a beautifully renovated independent room built into the limestone cliff in their courtyard.

Breakfast is included and is taken inside the house or on the terrace overlooking the Loire Valley. The house presents you with a subtle mixture of antique European and Asian furniture, Asian artifacts and modern paintings and photos - all reflecting the extensive travels of Brian and Therese.

For those who love calm and elegance this will be a delightful, peaceful experience that emphasizes nature and quality of life. Your private terrace enables you to relax in complete privacy. Your welcome is assured all year round, as this cave-bedroom remains cool in the heat of summer and snug with central heating in winter.

This accommodation is designed for two people. An additional bed can be added at €40 extra cost. The guests should ensure that, by requesting the additional bed, they accept the additional limitations on space and convenience.

Amboise is famous for its royal chateau and the 'Clos Luce', the home of Leonardo de Vinci. We are a short drive from all the renowned chateaux of the Loire Valley and you can visit local markets, charming villages or participate in wine tasting.

PILOTS. The Loire Valley is an ideal stopover for visiting foreign pilots. Land at Amboise/Dierre (LFEF) and Brian, an experienced pilot, will ensure that all your tourist and aviation needs are satisfied.

The Loire Valley is well known for its numerous chateaux, quality wines and delicious food and also for its caves; that is, its 'troglodyte' history. Excavation for the stone ('tuffeau') for the construction of chateaux resulted in numerous caves some of which are still used for habitation.

There are no cooking facilities in your room; However, tea/coffee making facilities are provided.

Access by car from Paris via the A10 auto route, by high-speed train (TGV) from Paris or Charles de Gaulle Airport or by air (RyanAir) is without difficulty. English is spoken.

Renting a car is necessary so as to have access to Amboise (4 km) and also to visit the numerous tourist features of the Loire Valley. Convenient car rental is available at the TGV station in Tours (St Pierre des Corps). Our GPS coordinates are N47 26' 57.2' and E001 00' 52.5'.

Preferred guest arrival time is 5PM or later. However, an earlier arrival is certainly possible. An email or courtesy phone call to Therese +33 (0)2 4730 1041 is all that is required.

Guests comments are the confirming proof of our quality. Unsolicited comments can be found on this site and also - Europe Amboise Paquerie.

              About the owner: Therese is your charming English speaking French hostess.

              Why the Owner Chose Amboise:
              This B&B is located in Therese's and Brian's home. Its charm lies in its view over the Loire Valley, its peacefulness, its completely independent nature and the fact that it is in a cave !

EXPECT A REPLY TO YOUR INQUIRY WITHIN 3 HOURS AND EVENTUALLY YOUR SIMPLE NO TAX SECURE PAYMENT BY PAYPAL.

              The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:

From their world travels they have an understanding of the travelers needs - his problems and concerns. Unlike other B&B's Brian will offer you an additional free service of helping you in the planning and organization of your holiday. Unconditional help is available at no charge.
