Recent Amboise reviews

  • Very charming

    "This is a very lovely apartment in a very lovely spot, directly next to the chateau at Amboise. The location cannot be beat. You are steps away from the Loire River and downtown Amboise. Every bedroom has a view of the chateau. There is one parking spot on the property, which was very convenient. The garden was a wonderful spot to share a glass of wine with friends and watch the hot air balloons fly overhead. The owners very helpful and flexible, especially as our flight and arrival time were delayed. This is a very old, charming house. Original beams are visible throughout the living area. Though the kitchen is quite compact, there were plenty of dishes and dining space for the 6 of us. The Nespresso machine and pods were very much appreciated! This was a wonderful home base to explore the chateaux and countryside of the Loire Valley. Almost all of the major sites are within 30 minutes."

  • Fantastic location and property!

    "We recently stayed in this apartment, and it surpassed our expectations. The kitchen is very well equipped, with everything you would need to cook a meal (if you choose to do so!), spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. There is also a comfy area to sit and watch tv or read, and enough room at the table to seat up to 8. The appliances were good-sized, not small apartment types. The description of the property was very accurate. The location is in the center of Amboise and just off Rue Nationale, where there are many cafes and shops. The Tourist Center is close, there are many ATMs and markets. The Chateau d'Amboise and the Château du Clos Lucé were both in walking distance. For being in the center of town, this is a very quiet and peaceful place to stay. Communication with the owner was outstanding. She had many suggestions of activities, restaurants, as well as general information about the town and French culture. (Typical business hours of local shops, local bike rides, where to run, farmers markets...) She was also quick to answer any other questions that we had. Just can't say enough! We were extremely happy that we chose this property, and would definitely recommend to others, or stay again if we return to Amboise."

  • Lovely well maintained old home away from the bustle of Amboise

    "But near enough to be convenient to the sights. Dominique was a gracious hostess and very helpful providing suggestions and directions for making the most of our time in the area."

  • Great stay at La Porte Bleue!

    "We stayed at La Porte Bleue in March 2016. Chantal was amazing to deal with while booking her property. Her English is great, much better than my French! We stayed upstairs in her apartment. It is a 2 bedroom apartment with a nice living room, dining room and kitchen. The rooms are comfortable and the view is spectacular! Chantal will spend time discussing her passion, which is the history and beauty of the Loire Valley. She tells you about excellent restaurants as well which you might pass on. We rented a car in Paris and drove down to Amboise (pro tip- tollways only take Euros, no non French cards), so as to have maximum flexibility to visit local chateaus. We loved walking the town and trying new restaurants. La Forchette and La Cene (Ironically an Italian restaurant) were among our favorites. Make sure you go to the wine tasting at The Cave as well. There is a HUGE local outdoor market on Saturdays as too. Chantal's absurdly affordable apartment is a perfect location to explore this amazing region."
