Amboise house description

Amboise is unique in that it has the only inhabited island on the Loire River. The Blue Door is located on this island just across from the Chateau d'Amboise so it provides an incredible view of the river and castle. From the apartment you can listen to the Loire River rushing by and gaze at the chateau. You can be in the center of town with a pleasant 2-minute walk. And after a long day of sightseeing in the region, the Blue Door is the perfect place to unwind.

The loft comfortably sleeps 4-6 people in two bedrooms and on a sofa bed. The open living room and dining room combination with its exposed beams is a nice place for socializing. The kitchen is small but functional, with everything you need to prepare meals. The apartment offers a portable air conditioning unit and a dishwasher, as well as a washer and dryer just downstairs. Free parking is available close to the apartment.

From the Blue Door you can see a lot without a car since it is only a 10-minute walk to the train station. Since I stopped teaching in September 2012, I am now available to take you on excursions. We can design these together around the sights you'd like to see.

Amboise is the perfect place for exploring the Loire Valley, one of the most beautiful areas of France (with the chateaux of Chenonceau, Villandry, Chambord, and others). But there is much more to do than just the castles. Canoeing on the river; visiting the city of Tours, biking along the Loire, taking a hot air balloon ride, visiting the weekly markets...and for children...just down the street from the apartment is a summer swimming pool, a playground with zip line, mini golf, and small beaches.

I always respond quickly to requests, even if I do not have availability. If you do not hear from me right away, please check your spam or junk mail to see if my reply is there.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: I have lived in Amboise for 30 years and feel lucky to be living in a place that I think is one of the most beautiful in the world! I was a middle school teacher for many years, but always spent much of my free time renovating old houses. I love learning the history of old buildings and of this region in general.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The unobstructed view of the Chateau d'Amboise with Loire River rushing past is magnificent. There are few rentals that can provide such a wonderful view of an ancient chateau. The Blue Door is also perfectly situated for exploring Amboise and the region, with or without a car.
