Recent Centre-Loire Valley reviews

  • Everything you could want!

    "We chose this apartment, in part, because of the fabulous reviews; I'm delighted to be able to add another one! My husband and our 15-year-old granddaughter and I spent a week in Chateau Chaptal and couldn't have been more pleased. From the ease of getting the keys in advance to the PERFECT location to one of the best showers we've seen in Europe, this place has it all. The apartment is well-maintained and very, very clean. The layout of the kitchen/dining area/sitting area is perfect for being together and still feeling like you have your own space. The beds are large (no footboards, which is a huge plus for my 6'4" husband!) and extremely comfortable. We cook when we travel and the pots and pans were of high quality -- what a luxury! Having struggled with European appliances over the years, I found Sandra and Tim's detailed instructions for everything from the washer and dryer to the dishwasher extremely helpful. And, finally, the property manager, Serge, lives about a block away and speaks English. He couldn't have been more lovely and helpful. Amboise is a wonderful town and being three doors off the main pedestrian street was great -- especially because there is no street noise. A relatively new bakery (L'Horloge) on Rue Nationale was wonderful and the gelato place (Amorino) on the square across from the Chateau has wonderful hot chocolate with homemade chantilly cream. We tried the famous Bigot hot chocolate, too, and definitely preferred Amorino's! Go, stay -- you won't be disappointed!"

  • Great Homebase to Explore the Loire

    "Our family of four stayed for a week at La Noue in late November and found it to be a great base from which to explore the Loire. Christine was a very responsive and helpful host and her brother Jean was onsite to help with any questions we had. The accommodations themselves were extremely roomy and a truly authentic chateau. Having stayed in the "two room" setup with family at a hotel, being able to share this large and comfortable space was a treat and definitely the only way to travel with family through the country. There were a number of chateaus, charming towns and amazing restaurants within easy driving distance. Getting a quick pastry and espresso in the local village before a day of sight seeing was a great start to our days. While it was extremely cold during our stay (we visited the last week of November and consciously made this trade-off to avoid crowds of tourists), the grounds would have been an awesome setting for a picnic or simply running around during warmer weather. Having large bedrooms and bathrooms for a family to get ready in the morning or simply relax before dinner made enjoying the entire day during our trip so much easier. This is a unique setting for exploring a beautiful area of the French country and getting a true feel for the local lifestyle. A tip though - bring a GPS, if not to find the chateau, to navigate some of the smaller local roads at night, especially if there are any construction detours. We would definitely recommend an extended stay at La Noue to our friends."

  • Très romantique et confortable

    "Les photos ne trompent pas! Vous trouverez dans ce studio identique aux photos publiées par les propriétaires un confort et un calme que seules les rives de la Loire dégagent. Y ayant passé une semaine, mon mari et moi avons eu la chance de connaître des propriétaires attentifs et donnent aux détails une attention bien historique. Situé dans une ville tellement pleine d'histoire, l'appartement porte bien ces traces car la propriétaire a su marier confort et passé. Nous garderons un souvenir unique de cet endroit voisin du château d'Ambroise."

  • Fabulous location,wonderful host, super clean

    "This is a perfect location for day trips in the Loire Valley. The apartment is modern, with more amenities than you will ever need. The bedroom has exposed beams on the wall, very lovely. Pascal was very helpful and recommended restaurants, cheese shops and bakeries all within walking distance. I would stay again!!!"
