Comfortable base to explore Loire Valley
Very comfortable house with many nice small touches that made it a pleasure to return to after a day of hiking through the Loire Valley countryside stalking chateaux. We especially enjoyed the garden and the sun porch overlooking it. The linens were in excellent shape and the house was clean. The property was exactly as described and imaged online. Amboise is a good location in the valley and the house is well situated in Amboise with boulangeries, a grocery store, and many restaurants a short walk away. The steep spiral staircase was fun for us but could be challenge for those with mobility limitations. Free parking was conveniently close with 24 hour access. Taken together, a great place to stay while enjoying the beauty, peace and people of the Loire Valley.
Hello Mr Fricks
Thank you for your appreciation that I just read.
It is nice to read that you have had good times at home and that you have enjoyed the valley with its castles and its history. Thank you again for choosing our home we hope to accommodate you next time. Guests like you are a real pleasure!

How soon can I get back here?
This was the most amazing VRBO property I have ever stayed in anywhere period! It was warm, comfortable, inviting and felt like home. I did not want to leave. It is close to all the Chateaus. Nothing is more than 2 hours driving through beautiful countryside. Pasqual was so sweet. We hopped from Chateau to Chateau everyday, went to the Butcher and the Fromage shops every night and cooked at HOME in a well-stocked kitchen. There is not one thing that could have been better. The garden and the backyard are beautiful as well. We did not utilise it too much because of the weather. I would live in Amboise over the USA anyday.
We thank you very much for the words you have written about your stay in our house. We work so that our guests can feel at home and at the same time so that they can enjoy a place that does not necessarily resemble the place where they live. You read it gives us great joy and desire to continue to do our best!
We tell you next time with pleasure

The owner has thought of everything, right down to a shopping cart. Some older homes are short on plug ins but not here. We could happily live here. Very convenient to the sights and eating out. Just remarkable! Just be careful on the stairs.
Thank you very much for your message, Kevin and Janie. It's really nice to read that you enjoyed your stay. You have been great hosts too and we hope to welcome you next time.
With our thanks
Viviana and Pascal
Wonderful house in a beautiful town
I can't say enough good things about this house and Amboise. The house is gorgeous with a lovely layout and private garden, the kitchen was very well equipped and we cooked a couple of meals with fresh produce from the local market. The beds were comfortable, and whilst the stairs are narrow I managed them easily (I've got a bad knee and hip) and the age of them add to charm of the lovely house. Amboise is a stunning town and the people really friendly. I can recommend the restaurants, Clos Luce and the chateau. Pascal and Vivianne were gracious hosts and answered any questions we had promptly. I would come back and stay here and can't recommend it enough to people who are thinking of going to this area. Oh and before I forget, the wine is pretty good too!
thank you very much for your words about the house. We are delighted that you have had a good time. We are waiting to welcome you again. With great pleasure

Lovely house in a wonderful location
This charming house is located close to the centre of Amboise. The house is very well presented with all the amenities you need for your holiday, a well equipped kitchen (very modern) with a nice sitting area. Bedrooms are well presented and there are two bathrooms . The garden is delightful, a perfect place to relax at the end of the day. The house is just a few minutes walk from the centre of Amboise, where there are many places to eat, we found it a good idea to book beforehand at the more popular restaurants.
The Royal Chateau Amboise is close by and is well worth a visit, there are two others in the town also within walking distance.
If you are driving there is free parking close by, we used the parking Des Tanneurs location, five minutes walk from the house.
Excellent communication from the owners.
This is the perfect house for a stay in a beautiful town, if we come back to this area this house will be our number 1 choice. Many thanks for a memorable week in the Loire valley.
A wonderful month in Amboise
We had an absolutely delightful time!! This is a beautiful property that is beautifully maintained. The support folks were very friendly and fun to run into out in town. A lovely town, a lovely street.. we just had a great time!
- the garden is wonderful and beautifully maintained
- the location is awesome! Fun to watch all the folks walk by.
- the views out all the windows are wonderful
- house was well stocked with essentials. Full set of appliances
- caretaker couple was very friendly and helpful
- outdoor grill is very cool. I assume this was the original kitchen area?
- that little out-building is the perfect spot to store bicycles
- Parking arrangement works quite well
Hello Marguerite Gray, thank you for your comment! The little cabin where there is the barbecue, it was not the old kitchen. It was a room to store garden tools and we created the perfect place to enjoy the garden. I wish you a good continuation and we hope to be able to welcome you again because you have been the ideal hosts; Nice, polite and respected places. Another big thank you

In addition to visits to the chateaux of the Loire, to see the Clos Lucé (200 meters from the rental), the Beauval Zoo (35 kms), The Pagoda Chanteloup (1km), canoeing down the Loire (1km ), Aquarium of Touraine (10kms), Park of mini castles (2 kms), Museum of Fine Arts in Tours and its Cathedral (25 kms); do not miss a stroll in the sky to see the Loire from another point of view, tried the charming hot air balloon for an unforgettable trip!(Amboise Island of Gold)
