an early 19th Century stone townhouse with a sunny courtyard (south exposure) and a charming tiny garden (Loire side). 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 toilets. idealy located in the historical centre of Amboise, in a quiet section.

The space

in the summer we love the kitchen completely open to the garden with his large table and his lounge. in the winter we enjoy "the loft", his large diner table and the large lounge and we often love to stay in the "petit salon" close to the fireplace...

Interaction with guests

if you like it, we can help you to plan your journey and let you know our favorites places, small castles and secret gardens.

Herveline was a wonderful host! She was excellent at communicating with us before our stay and very concerned that we had a great stay in her home. She even helped us to arrange a taxi during our stay. The location of the house could not have been better - literally round the corner from the fantastic Amboise market (you could see it from one of the upstairs bedroom windows!) and a 10 minute walk to the pedestrian shopping street that meandered up to the Chateau, yet it was situated in a quiet road with very little traffic and easy parking. The house had plenty of room for our group of 10 to spread out and the added bonus of the small garden with a dining table meant that we were able to eat breakfast and lunch outside in the summer sunshine! Bliss! The kitchen was basic but fully stocked with plenty of kitchenware and an electric kettle (us Brits need our tea!), Nespresso machine (bring your pods!), oven, microwave and fridge. I think they may have been a dishwasher too, though we didn't use it. This is an old house and is best described as quirky:-) It was clean and had all the amenities that we needed (and more!). The only word of caution is that the ensuite in the master bedroom is at a lower level than the bedroom and is reached by a small ladder. This may be an issue for less mobile parties, though there is another bathroom with a bath on the first floor and the second double bedroom on the first floor has a shower in it. Thank you so much for lending us your house Herveline - I would definitely stay with you again in the future!

We had an absolutely lovely stay in this special home. Just a short walk from the market, the center of town with its shops and attractions, with the charm of Amboise all around us. The home is beautifully decorated and inviting. Beds and linens were comfortable and clean, and the kitchen and dining areas fantastic for cooking and enjoying family time. The host arranged to have us personally greeted and sent lots of detailed information to make our stay a smooth one. Highly recommend gem of the Loire Valley!

Would highly recommend this house to others. The location is great being a very short walk to the local market and the river. Plenty of space for a large family or group. The decoration in the house was fantastic and has a lot of character. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor areas which we perfect for the kids and dining.

We were a large group (6 adults, 5 children, 1 infant) and managed to fit comfortably in Herveline's house. The house was big, location was excellent and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking and "living" the house. Herveline was very helpful prior to our arrival, including for everything related to our baby and other arrangements that we requested. The biggest challenge was that the house was not very clean when we arrived. We had arranged for a cleaner to come during our stay and on the first day we had to secure additional hours to bring the house to our expectation. Also during checkin there were a lot of rules and preferences, many common-sense, others very specific to this house: it would be useful to have simple printed reminders to keep track.

I just read your comment. i'm very desapointed. I taked so much time to welcome you. usually our guests arrives by themselves just with the recommendations they read online. why didnt you tell me you prefer just read the document because you prefer to take a rest ? regarding the cleaning. I control everything by myself : the house was very clean ! all the bathrooms had been entierly cleaned, aspirator and dust had been done everywhere. our house is a countryside house. but very clean. my son has asthma I really take care of that !

We had a lovely stay in at Herveline and Arnaud's place in Amboise. A charming house near the center of Amboise. Arnaud very warmly greeted us and made sure we felt welcomed. Herveline was always quick to answer any questions we had during our stay via text. It was the perfect place for my family to relax. We enjoyed hanging out in the house as much as visiting the sites.

Wonderfull house for a family and a great town. We had a relaxing stay,spent most of our time out in the small garden. Amboise is worth the visit. Able to walk mostly everywhere you need to be. And Herveline was a great host, answered all questions quickly via sms and organised a taxi for us. And she made real effort for my baby boy, put out a crib,baby gate at stairs, high chair and bibs.

This is a beautiful old house in Amboise designed with individual and unique taste which is extremely welcoming. The garden is a unique treat in a busy town and the location was perfect for those wanting a relaxing and tranquil experience. We were left a bottle of wine and had a warm welcome on arrival. Lots and lots of toys for kids which which our son was generously allowed to use. A unique stay which we would recommend.
