Comfortable studio right across the river from a charming renaissance era village
The studio and Amboise were a great hub for exploring chateaus and wineries
in the Loire valley. Situated across the river from town, a step outside the
studio offers stunning views--especially at night. Our gracious hosts were
there to warmly welcome us and provide insights on local attractions. A
butcher and bakery are conveniently located across the street and are well
worth a visit. The Tabac down the street serves cappuccinos, so breakfast
was complete. We don’t speak any French aside from the obligatory
pleasantries but managed quite well nonetheless. Everyone we encountered in
town was particularly friendly and patiently worked with us. (Our entire
stay in France was like this but Amboise was the best!)
Amboise is a short walk across a bridge and has its own château and charming
renaissance era downtown with walking streets, bakeries, chocolatiers,
restaurants and shops. My wife found some nice scarves here at a good
price that weren't to be found in Paris, for instance. We visited Chambord,
Clos Luce (DaVinci's last home) and Chenonceau. All are worth a visit but we
enjoyed the charm and warmth of the latter two the most.
The studio was cozy but clean and well stocked with all of the essentials
for cooking. It's an odd thing to mention, but the shower had a fantastic
flow reminiscent of pre-flow restrictor days. We also had the use of the
beautiful patio where we unwound at the end of the day. The only hiccup was
finding a place to park upon arrival. If you have the pleasure of staying
here, do inquire in advance about how to reach the parking area behind the
Note that we also considered Blois for our Loire valley visit but after
visiting it we were glad we chose Amboise instead. It was far less commercial
and thus more relaxing and romantic. If you choose to stay in Amboise you
couldn't find a better combination of a great location and gracious hosts
who will greet you like family. Our stay here capped off an unforgettable
visit to France.
Thank a lot for your wonderful appreciation.
I do my best I want absolutely my guests feel good after an hard day with visiting !
It is important they sleep good have a nice environment and enjoy my small paradise
I appreciate this house and like to share with my guests
It was short after perhaps you come back to Amboise .
For the parking I said you before to ring the bell at first number 8 Rue de Blois : all people do that and after I show the lane to the river side
Perhaps you were too tired and I understand if you search alone it is not easy
Now you know for the next time !
It was really a pleasure to have you at home
And please give news with Facebook
I wish you much pleasure in Spain 🇪�🇸� and a good flight back to Denver
Wonderful studio, perfect location, adorable host
We had a fantastic holiday in Amboise. We were greeted by our colourful and friendly host, who was extremely kind and helpful. Our quirky studio overlooked the Loire and we had a beautiful view of the chateau. It was comfortable and well equipped, with a lovely courtyard so we could eat outside. We were even given a bottle of wine to welcome us. We started with a Segway tour around Amboise which was really good fun and surprisingly easy. A great way to see the sights. We also took a Canadian canoe down the Cher to Chenonceuaux - stunning scenery. The restaurants were very good and the general ambiance was relaxing. I am sure we will come again.
Bello dear Liz and Paul ,
It was really a pleasure to have you at home !
You are lovely people and like me you enjoy the good life
Thank you for your stay in my studio ( you gave me back this studio
Very clean thank a lot )
And you beer bottles : GREAT
I hope you come back to me
I wish you happiness
Lots of love
A magnificent view of the Loire river. This is a charming little studio and only a short walk from the beautiful village Ambroise. Highly recommendable.
Soizick Yver, the owner of the studios is truly accommodating in every way and a true gem of a person. My vacation was made exceptional with her guidance, her knowledge of the regions of France and her personal travelling experience which is plentiful.

hello Carolyn ,
thank a lot for your appreciation
for me it was wonderful to know you
i hope i see you very soon again
Un bellissimo soggiorno / A wonderful stay
Già in fase di trattative via e-mail la signora Yver mi è subito sembrata una persona intelligente, gentile ed aperta; quando l’ho conosciuta personalmente le mie impressioni sono state del tutto confermate: è una persona simpatica e disponibile, con cui è veramente un piacere parlare e confrontarsi, anche perché è una grande viaggiatrice con un genuino interesse per le culture degli altri paesi.
Nei suoi studi (io ho soggiornato in uno, ma l’altro è identico), estremamente confortevoli, non manca niente: in particolare ho apprezzato moltissimo l’impianto di riscaldamento a pavimento e la connessione wi-fi velocissima. In caso di bisogno, o anche solo per ricevere qualche suggerimento su come organizzare il proprio soggiorno, la signora Yver e il marito, che abitano sopra ai due studi che affittano, sono sempre disponibili; sono sinceramente grato ad entrambi per avere contribuito a rendere davvero piacevole il mio soggiorno: non a caso, invece delle due settimane inizialmente previste, mi sono fermato un mese e mezzo.
Amboise, oltre ad essere sede di un importante castello, nonché della dimora dove trascorse i suoi ultimi anni Leonardo da Vinci, si trova a metà strada tra le due interessanti città di Tours e Blois, e al centro della valle della Loira, quindi in una posizione ideale sia per chi vuole visitare solamente i castelli più importanti, sia per chi, come ho fatto io, non vuole tralasciare quelli “minori”, spingendosi fino a Orleans da una parte e a Nantes dall’altra.
Very briefly in English:
I appreciated everything: the studio is nice and cosy, with a wonderful heating system and an amazingly good wi-fi connection; Mrs Yver and her husband are the nicest and kindest landlords I have ever met in years of travelling and renting flats all over Europe; Amboise is a nice town and a perfect location to explore the whole Loire valley.
Un très grand merci à vous . Vous avez été un locataire formidable à tout point de vue et j'espère vous revoir à Amboise
Bonne continuation à vous
Très bel emplacement du gîte
Le gîte est situé face au château d'Amboise et donne sur un ancien chemin de halage.
Plusieurs commerces sont situés à 3mn à pied, dont un boulanger, un boucher, un buraliste et une pharmacie.
Le centre d'Amboise est à 10mn à pied et une ballade en bord de Loire est possible dès la sortie du gîte.
S'il fait suffisamment beau, on peut même profiter de la terrasse face au château.
Quand aux propriétaires, je les qualifierais d'extraordinaires.
L'unique petit bémol concerne la literie dans laquelle on dort très bien, mais qui peut être un peu courte pour les plus + de 185 cm (c'est ma taille et c'était limite).
Mais on peut toujours y remédier.
Merci pour toutes ces précisions fort précieuses pour les futurs touristes
Qui voudront occuper ce gite !
Je vous rétorque le compliment : vous 2 aussi êtes un couple formidable
Que j'espère revoir bientôt !
Quatre jours merveilleux en amoureux
Merci Soizick pour votre accueil si chaleureux !
Nous nous sommes installés dans un petit nid douillet en bordure de Loire.
De quoi ravir les pupilles !
Nous avons marché dans les pas des rois de France et dans ceux de Léonard de Vinci. Nous avons dégusté le chenin blanc de Mont Louis et de Vouvray.
De quoi réjouir les papilles !
Nous garderons un très bon souvenir de notre séjour et nous reviendrons avec plaisir dans les studios de Soizick.
Gwénaëlle et Guy
Que ce compliment est fort bien tourné et me va droit au cœur !
C'est avec grand bonheur que la bretonne ...exilée. ( dans un coin de rêve !!!!!)
Vous reverra !
Vous formez un couple adorable et si attachant
De tout cœur un très grand MERCI et à bientôt
