Views over Clos Luce and the rooftops of Amboise.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Balcon de Leonard for 8 enjoyable nights. The house is comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. Everything worked well except the washing machine -- we found a laverie next to the L. Leclerc nearby. The house is well located to visit the area’s chateaus and witness the change from medieval (Donjon de Montbazon) to the Renaissance (Chambord). There is parking in front of the house that will test your skill in driving in reverse. Annie Mary and Jean Noel were gracious hosts.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This home had a fantastic location just steps from Clos Luce (da Vinci's last residence) and a few blocks from the heart of Amboise. It was an easy walk to Amboise Chateau and many restaurants and shopping. There was also a lovely market on Sunday morning down by the river. I would definitely stay here again if I was in Amboise.

It was a little tricky to navigate the streets first time we arrived, there is actually parking on the dead end street behind the house.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

Annie and Jean Noel's villa is a little piece of heaven right next to Le Clos du Luce! Walking distance to the heart of Amboise. Easy navigation to the best chateaux! They provided us with a wealth of information about the area and the villa was equipped with all imaginable essentials!

Couldn't think of a better Amboise rental!

  • 5 of 5

The property is a cute house, very close (a short walk) to all historic locations in Amboise. In fact, the next house over was the Clos Luce, Leonardo's residence. The owners were super hospitable and generous, as we had a later than expected arrival.

We were 2 adults and 3 kids, and it was the perfect size for us.

If we came to Amboise again, the only thing I would change is...I would stay here a bit longer. Amboise is a great town, and this rental was superb!

Poorly kept, dripping water from ceiling, owner unavailable

  • 2 of 5

The villa is much smaller than what the pictures lead you to believe. There was water dripping through the ceiling on to the base of the stairway from the bathroom, creating a hazard. We let the owner know and she said she was out of town and could do nothing with it so we had to have a pan catching water for our stay. The amenities were few and the furnishings were quite worn and uncomfortable. The directions to the villa were horrible. We were given no address even after asking for it, and had to stop at the local tourist information center to obtain directions. I do love Amboise as a starting point to explore the Loire Valley, however, and the location of the villa is good.

The place was great and the owners really friendly and helpful. We had a great time and would recommend it to anyone. Well located for visits by car to any of the chateaus plus easy walking distance into Amboise town centre. Apartment was well furnished, clean and nicely laid out.
