Comment:

"We rented the top, split-level apartment during last week of December - and really enjoyed our stay. The flat has plenty of space, lovely views over the Amboise castle, is decorated and furnished with taste, features 3 nice bedrooms (with good quality beds), and sitting in a quiet street within a few steps of the castle shops and restaurants of Amboise - and was spotless clean. Karine the owner was very helpful throughout our stay. Very good selection of local wines available in the flat (to buy). And Amboise is ideally located to tour the Loire Valley castles i.e. you won't be spending too much time in the car travelling back and forth. What more to ask for? Perfect! Would recommend without hesitation".

About Karine and Thierry

Karine and Thierry are originated from Amboise but spent a few years in London before returning to their home place.

They wanted to share their passion for the Loire Valley, and in 2002, they seized the opportunity to buy a 17th century townhouse in the most renowned street of Amboise, rue de la Concorde, directly facing the Royal Castle.

Karine is an interior designer and carefully renovated the House mixing tradition, charm and authenticity, without any compromise on comfort and equipment.

Thierry is the owner and manager of a Travel Agency, specialized in organizing “a la carte” tours in the Loire Valley.

Karine and Thierry purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Karine and Thierry chose Amboise

Because of its prime location, Air conditioning, VillaConcorde will allow you to just walk to some of the main attractions such as the Château Amboise (of course !) but also Clos Lucé, the last residence of Leonardo da Vinci, and many other places... You will also appreciate the walking distance to the pedestrian streets, excellent restaurants, numerous cafés, boutiques and the local products market.

What makes this apartment unique

The icing of the cake is surely the stunning view on the Royal castle, transporting you back at the Renaissance period each time you look trough the window.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Two families of 5, one family of 3 and two sets of grandparents had a wonderful time staying at the beautiful and very comfortable Villa Concorde - only we left my son's teddy bear behind!

The good news is that Teddy arrived home today, we missed him terribly but Karine told us that Teddy had had a lovely time visiting a few more castles on the Loire and sleeping some extra nights at Villa Concorde!

Thank you everyone for your help in getting Teddy back home, he will sleep well in his own bed tonight!

Karine, a special thank you to you for taking the time to post him back to us in Scotland.

We had such a fantastic time at Villa Concorde and in the lovely town of Amboise. There was so much for us to do and all within walking distance. We didn't use the car all week!

I have already recommended it to my friends and we definitely hope to visit again some time. It was perfect!

Charming apartment with a fabulous location in beautiful Amboise.

  • 5 of 5

After struggling to haul our luggage up two floors we reached our apartment. The apartment itself is charmingly decorated. The main level had two small bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. It also contained a shower/tub room and separate toilet room. Also on the main level was a large and well equipped kitchen, a dining area, and nice sized living area with small flat screen tv on the floor.

The upper floor loft area with all its exposed roof beams was a challenge to navigate but was as advertised with a nice bed and a full bathroom with shower and toilet. We wouldn't advise the upper floor for anyone over 5 feet tall.

It was very hot during our visit and the air conditioning was helpful in cooling the bedrooms. Not so much for the living area or the loft.

We enjoyed our stay here, the location is really amazing, right next to the walls of the Chateau. It was also very quiet since the main road was on the other side of the building from our apartment. Great gelato and pastries are only two blocks away and the grocery was only a four block walk. We were also happy that parking was easy.

We would be happy to come back here and hope to someday.

We had a wonderful stay at the apartment. It was just as pictured and very clean. We loved the location in the city center, close to activities and cafes. It was a special treat looking out the windows at the Château d’Amboise Castle!

Storybook house

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely a dream. Thierry's and Karine, husband and wife owners were the nicest people one could meet. Karine met us at check-in time and showed us around and Thierry came at when we were leaving. This house could not have been better positioned, right across from a beautiful castle, Château d'Amboise, and very close to the restaurants, shops and the river. At nights, we enjoyed the beautiful view of the castle which was lit up with colorful lights. The house was immaculate, in respect to decoration, cleanliness, and comfort. Plenty of clean towels, wine available for purchase selected by Thierry, and some basic food in the kitchen and refrigerator. Parking was not always available and we had to park a couple of blocks away, but that is the charm of living in a small town. Overall, this was one of the best places I stayed during my travels.

Unusual and Charming

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to have stayed in Villa Concorde for part of our trip to France. The apartment was clean and extremely well located. The town itself is charming and the apartment is convenient to the chateaux. The apartment is in an historic section right across the street from the chateau and a convenient walk to restaurants and a lovely pastry shop. The two downstairs bedrooms share two half baths, one with a toilet and one with a shower. The upstairs bedroom has a full bathroom. Our 10 and 12-year-old girls stayed there. The upstairs is more suited to children as you must bend quite low to avoid hitting your head on the sloped ceiling. That being said, the apartment is stocked with everything you will need. The only problem we had was that we were there in August, which was very hot. There is a small air conditioning unit on the upper level but it was quite warm on the main floor.

Superb!

  • 5 of 5

Relaxing, beautiful, comfortable! If you want an extremely pleasant experience, you have found the place to stay. After a fun day exploring Amboise and its environs, my grown family of five would return to this lovely retreat and have a great night's sleep. Thank you, Karine and Thierry, for providing such a lovely apartment for our use. It is a little slice of heaven!
