"We had a wonderful 10 day stay here with our four young children. The property is absolutely beautiful, with a huge front yard green area for the kids to run and play in, secure fenced woods above on the hill behind the property, and a wonderful large circular drive that the kids had a fantastic time on with scooters provided by Marie-Noelle. Whenever we were home, the kids were outside playing.
The location is excellent, very central and close to four or five of the key chateaus in Loire Valley, with many more smaller attractions close by as well. We drove to Futuroscope one day as well, which the kids absolutely loved (we highly recommend it!), saw Chambord, Chenonchau, Cheverney, Azay-le-Rideau and Villandry, all within 10-45 minutes from the property. It's perfectly situated between Tours and Amboise with easy access to either.
The house is set on three floors, with a large master on the second and a very large neat top floor bedroom with plenty of room for the four kids. There are nice clean bathrooms on each of the bedroom floors. The house is very clean and feels recently renovated, with nice hardwood floors upstairs and plenty of space. The kitchen and living room are on the ground floor.
The river is just minutes away, and down a bit further toward Amboise is a canoe rental facility on the river-shore. The kids had a grand time canoeing from there down to Chenonchau Chateau, about a 90 minute round trip journey on the very easy and slow-moving Cher River for about 50 Euros for two canoes and 6 people. Wonderful river trip for any young kids comfortable around water.
Marie-Noelle was a wonderful owner and took great care of us, dropping off occasional fresh baked breads and cheese and helping us with any questions. The property also has a nice indoor pool that the kids swam in, although not as much as they wanted since we were out exploring the area most days."

"Superb apartment in the centre of this great town.The space and presentation,for the two of us,was fantastic,we thought the overall style and antiquities on display were better than our visit to the Chateau in Saumur,would we stay again if in the area ? Without a doubt !! Thank you Gilles,you have a great apartment."
