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!

Picturesque home base for travels in Loire Valley

  • 5 of 5

Amazing home that feels recently renovated located in heart of Amboise France. Magically huge! You enter street level into a nice sized and open kitchen eating and sitting area with a beautiful window looking out over your neighbors vegetable gardens and the back of Clos Luce. One full bedroom and bath upstairs and 2 bedrooms and bathrooms downstairs with comfy alcoves for reading. Our 2 teenage sons took over the downstairs with its own tv and play station and we basked in our upstairs suite with total privacy. Location was amazing for the town and for traveling to nearby castles and wineries. We took a train from Paris to Saint Pierre des corps near Tours. Rented a car there then drove to Amboise in 30 minutes. Once there, we walked everywhere in town. Many sites to see right there (chateau Amboise, clos luce, gardens, open markets, shopping, eating, boat rentals), but also was so nice to relax and do nothing but become familiar with the flow of the small town. Rented bikes to travel to another chateau(incredible!). Could easily fit 6-7 people if children and adults. 3 couples are possible but keep in mind very old building with low ceilings and lots of stairs and unique configurations!
