About the Property
Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)
The wooden cottage was completely renovated in the end of 2011 and the gardens were professionally landscaped (a work in progress!) in the Spring of 2012. Amenities include modern appliances (dishwasher, oven, vetro-ceramic stovetop, refrigerator/freezer, washing machine), queen size (160cm) canopy bed, comfortable/convenient sofa-sleeper (140cm), modern bathroom with glass hydro-massage shower, LED flatscreen TV with 100+ including CNN, DVD Player (multi-zone), IPAD/IPOD speaker/dock and free internet WIFI and telephone calls to the U.S.A, Canada, and Europe.
The house measures 35 square meters and is an open “loft” layout with a comfortable bar type kitchen with four stools for rainy days. It is perfect for a couple or a small family, but we remind you that there is no separate sleeping area. It is full of sunlight and modestly decorated in white and natural colors lending a feeling of space and elegance. The main attraction of the property is the large enclosed garden and 42 square meter deck that surrounds the house with a Weber gas BBQ, table for four with umbrella, rocking chairs, sail awning, and plenty of space to enjoy the fresh air and magnificent view of the valley below.
Parking is available on the street in front of the house. A secured “cave” or storage area is available upon request for bikes (and wine!) on the street level. There is a narrow staircase to access the property. Therefore, we do not recommend “La Petite Vigne” for anyone who has difficulty climbing stairs.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Car: Not Necessary
Amboise is centrally located in the heart of the Loire Valley with easy access to the numerous castles, parks, forests and sites of the region. We highly recommend the Festival of Gardens in Chaumont (15 minutes by car) May-October, and site seeing on horseback at Les Ecuries du Pray just 10 minutes by bike.
Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose Amboise, France:
We fell in love with this land and view. The cottage is full of light all day long. It's very calm and quiet all the while being on a main street leading to the Castle. This is very difficult to find in the historical center of Amboise!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
La Petite Vigne is quite special due to the fact that it offers a large private, enclosed garden with an outstanding view over the Amboise Forest and at the same time it is situated in the heart of the historical center just 200 meters from the Clos Luce and 500 meters to the Castle of Amboise. Parking in front of the house allows guests to easily enter/exit Amboise and tour the surrounding area and castles by car or bike. The cottage is situated on a plateau overlooking the valley with easy access to numerous bike routes connecting villages throughout the Loire Valley. We are also just 10 minutes by bike to a wonderful Equestrian center, Les Ecuries du Pray, that we highly recommend for horseback riding throughout the region.
