About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

You will be charmed by this tastefully decorated 1 bedroom apartment (located on the 1st floor of the townhouse, there is one apartment per floor). We have taken a lot of time and effort in restoring this 18thC townhouse, combining old and new styles for (what we believe is) a tasteful result. We have paid particular attention to the confort of our guests when choosing such essential elements as the beds and furnitures.

Located on a quiet portion of the pedestrianized main street (rue Nationale). Within easy walking distance from everything that makes Amboise an excellent holiday town.

A bit of history: Rue Nationale, now a pedestrian street full of charming shops and spots for eating/drinking, was in former days the road that lead away from town (the gate in the medieval ramparts is still there, now with a clock and called the “belfry”—look to the left as you exit the house). In the eighteenth century, the stage coaches for Tours and points beyond left from the house next door, and our house was the lay-over accommodations for the coachmen. The livery for horses and coaches was a bit farther down the street, in the courtyard behind the present-day cinema. And whereas the roughnecks of yesteryear probably slept on straw pallets, and with no privacy, we now invite you to enjoy your own private space, with confortable bedding and full modern amenities.

- Historical sites: 13th C St Denis church, Royal Amboise castle, home to François 1er and other kings of France, the Clos Lucé, last residence of Leonardo da Vinci and historical old town center streets.

- Gourmet restaurants, excellent weekly open air Market on the banks of the Loire, featuring local specialities: Cheeses, wines, meats and local produce.

- Bakery, newsagent, supermarket (open 7am-10pm) Mont-Sat, delicatessens, boutiques.

During the summer months, the town is a hive of activity: night-time open air Markets, street performers, local artists exhibitions, open air swimming pool on the Ile d'or nearby.

A short drive will take you to: Chenonceau castle, Chambord castle... (all main Loire valley castles).

Absolutely the best!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of renting this beautiful apartment from Pascale.

First and foremost she was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was very quick to answer all our inquiries . On arrival day she met us at the apartment and showed us everything about it and took the time to tell us about all the places to eat and shop. She even gave us a nice bottle of wine!

Her apartment is beautiful and spacious. She has has not only done a great job decorating it, but it was also absolutely spotless!

The apartment was perfectly located in town for shopping, eating, relaxing and touring. We couldn't imagine renting a nicer apartment! If we ever return to Amboise, this is the first place we would look to rent!

Thank you for a wonderful stay Pascale!

Exceptionnel!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended apartment, location and owner Pascale. Her hospitality, humor and bonhomie made our visit in late October 2015 memorable. Details about apartment in earlier reviews are accurate and appreciated.

Love at first sight

  • 5 of 5

We usually stay in apartments rather than hotels and this property shows why. The hotel model is a dinosaur for most leisure travellers in my opinion (vow never to open the door of a mini bar again!). This had much more space, more facilities, better location and heaps of character. Perfect front desk and concierge in the form of, host, Pascale. I could go on... but just have to mention the renovation and decoration of the apartment which was exceptional. Amboise, a great town for seeing this part of France. Hope to return.

Rob and Karen.

Outstanding apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This was an outstanding apartment – well located, well equipped, very comfortable, and well managed by Pascale, a lovely, thoughtful and welcoming owner. She picked us up at the train station, dropped us off and picked us up at the car rental office, and shared great restaurant and sightseeing tips. It was wonderful to have a fully equipped kitchen and washer/dryer, all of which made our four night stay seem easy and far too short. We highly recommend this rental!

A great place to stay in Amboise

  • 5 of 5

This is a top-flight vacation rental. It is modern, well-equipped, and in a great part of town. We used this as a home base for four days exploring the Loire valley, and we have no complaints. Indeed, it's the nicest place we've stayed at on our 3-week cross-country road trip. The ad is accurate, and Pascale is easy to work with. Highly recommended.
