  • Very enjoyable

    "We just finished a one week stay at this wonderful cottage. Photos accurately depict what you get. Has all the necessary amenities. Ample dishes and cooking utensils. Lovely patio with a retractable awning. If the weather is a bit off there is a lovely three seasons sun room. Situated at the back of this well landscaped property provides a lovely quiet and private setting. Very clean and well kept. Only a 15 minute walk to the downtown area with a lot of wonderful restaurants. Close to the farmers markets. The host Mr Guillier was very accommodating. He was readily accessible and stopped by once to ensure everything was alright. Would definitely stay again"

  • Very nice apartment, great location

    "The Coachman's House is a really nice apartment with a large bedroom and bathroom. The interior is a very contemporary design and tastefully decorated, with a light and airy feel to it, partly because of the large skylight in the bathroom. The appliances look to be fairly new, with a 4-burner induction stove, a large refrigerator, and a combination washer/dryer. There is also a drying rack, which we appreciated, because we've found the clothes need a lot less ironing if dried on the rack instead of in the dryer. The apartment is very well located, right on the main shopping street of Amboise. Just across the street is good boulangerie, where we got fresh croissants and fresh bread every morning. Next door to the boulangerie is a small, one-man coffee shop. You can make your own coffee in the apartment, but it was a treat just to stop in for some conversation and watch the young man make the coffee. Every cup is made from scratch by first grinding the beans, then weighing out the ground coffee, and putting it in the espresso machine. I would bring cups over from the apartment for him to fill and then take them back to the apartment to have with the croissants. There are many other shops with good takeout type food along the street, and many restaurants close by. There is also a supermarket about a 5-minute walk away. Pascale is very friendly and helpful, and her good familiarity with English both in conversation and in Email correspondence made things easier, as my French isn't the best. There is a free public parking lot next to the river, which is just one long block down the hill from the apartment. We never had any trouble finding a parking place there, but beware of Sunday mornings, because the big Sunday market is right next to the parking lot, and the whole area around that is a traffic gridlock on Sunday morning. If your car is already parked there you're fine, but don't plan on finding a parking place while the market is going on. Amboise makes a good home base for exploring some of the many Chateaus and various wine areas. Don't miss the Chateau Clos Luce in Amboise, where Leonardo da Vinci spent the last years of his life. It's a good little hike up the hill to the Chateau, but well worth it. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our week in Amboise, and I don't think we could have done any better than the Coachman's House. I highly recommend it."

  • Perfect location for Loire Valley stop

    "We were a party of 4 and the apartment was more than large enough to accommodate us all. There are 2 bathrooms, one with shower and one with bathtub. The kitchen was well appointed with everything you would need to cook at home if you wished. The apartment was immaculately clean and linens were high quality. There is a lovely backyard with table which is very nice. There are numerous restaurants within walking distance and Chateau d'Amboise and Clos Luce are less than 5 minutes walking. I would highly recommend this apartment as an ideal location for touring the Loire Valley. The only notes I would add: The staircase is very steep and narrow. Not a problem for us but could be for older and young visitors. Also, we were met by the in-laws who do not speak English. I was able to communicate with no problem using my rudimentary French but could be an issue if nobody in party speaks French. They were the nicest, sweetest people to meet and made us very welcome so I don't see this as a negative. Just want people to know."
