This unique duplex apartment is in Villaconcorde, a town house located in the very heart of AMBOISE, in a quiet street, rue de la Concorde, renowned as the most elegant of Amboise.

« Wow ... I didn't realize Villaconcorde was so close to the castle! » That is the usual comment of our guests when they arrive!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: 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 Villa 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.

Why the Owner Chose Amboise, France:
Villaconcorde is located in Rue de la Concorde, renowned as the most beautiful street in Amboise. Originally build in the 17th century, the Villa is part of the town heritage and used to be the Notary's house at the beginning of the century.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Because of its prime location, 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. 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.
