Great location in Amboise - nearly next door to the The Clos Luce!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed in this apartment while we visited several of the chateaus in the area. We loved Amboise and this was a nice home base. It is a couple doors down from The Clos Luce which my kids LOVED. This was the most unusual place we stayed in during our 2 weeks in France. There are small spaces carved in rock, a steep, spiral staircase, and the basement rooms definitely feel underground. I think older kids and teenagers would love this unit, but I would be cautious about bringing young children. We have a 2-yr-old and I was relieved we made it through our stay without any serious falls or bonked heads. Really, the location is great. I would stay here again - especially when my kids are older.

Our family of 7 loved staying here. We loved that almost everything was in walking distance. The maison was so cute, funky, historical, very clean. We'd love to return.

Lovely house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This charming, old house has been comfortably refurbished. Unusual and interesting in its layout, it's an inviting place to eat or hang out. It is very close to the center but is calm at night. Because of time constraints on both ends, we did not have very much interaction with Alex, alas. The little we did have was very pleasant - she was readily available to help us, had we needed to call on her.

Precious place - Alex is a delight to work with!

  • 5 of 5

Great location...for castles, food, shopping...

A lot of space, precious rock garden in my son's room... even while warm outside, Alex provides fans for comfort. Only amenity we missed was dryer... and needed to buy some soap... otherwise, fantastic!!!

Merci, Alex!
