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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect Bastille day

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful base for the Loire Valley and a perfect place to stay. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the Bastille day fireworks from our terrace.

The kitchen was the best we encountered in our time in France. The washing machine was very welcome. Parking was not at all difficult. Wonderful view of Amboise castle and Leonardo da Vinci's last home. We loved the parade celebrating Leonardo's arrival in Amboise that went past on July 15. Loved your place

Lovely gîte!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely place, exactly as pictured. We only used the kitchen for breakfasts, but it is well stocked with coffee, tea, sugar, cooking oil and spices. If we had been able to stay more than two nights we would have cooked more. Bathroom was large, good shower, had a hair dryer available. Washer was nice to have too.

Amazing view of the area and Clos Luce. We were able to walk to everything: the chateau, restaurants, market and bread store, even to the main town across the bridge.

Our hosts were very gracious and their English was better than our French. We did have trouble finding the place since our gps directions wanted us to make turns onto one way streets. My advice would be to follow signs to Clos Luce. We called our hosts and they actually came down to the street and helped us find the place.

Would love to return to Amboise someday and stay here another time!

Super lovely and cozy house neighboring Leonardo Da Vinci's home

  • 5 of 5

Our visit was just too short, but this lovely gite has everything you need even for a longer stay — especially a beautiful, modern kitchen. The beds are comfortable, the shower is large and hot, and there is enough room to spread out. We had a wonderful time in Amboise and loved being Leonardo's neighbors for a few days! The owners are very nice and met us on both ends of our trip to drop off and pick up keys.

The Highlight of our 3 weeks in France!

  • 5 of 5

For a "Hub & Spoke" approach to visiting this delightful area and the chateaus of the Loire Valley, this two-level apartment was a HUGE find!! At the top of the hill that climbs above Amboise, it was convenient, perfect as a home base and super comfortable! While still providing a sense of the antiquity of the region, this beautiful little place had many contemporary features, including a slick, modern kitchen with a window that looked out on DaVinci's old digs. It boasted two entries, the lower staircase stepping down to a courtyard shared by troglodyte dwellers and out the back gate to town; the upper entrance (street side where we parked our Fiat) was preceded by a terrace that overlooked all of Amboise. Perfect for morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine. The owners, Annie Mary & Jean have put their heart & soul in to this treasure...they are charming, attentive and helpful. Highly recommended!!
