The space

Amboise is unique in that it has the only inhabited island on the Loire River. The Blue Door is located on this island just across from the Chateau d'Amboise so it provides an incredible view of the river and castle. From the apartment you can listen to the Loire River rushing by and gaze at the chateau. You can be in the center of town with a pleasant 2-minute walk. And after a long day of sightseeing in the region, the Blue Door is the perfect place to unwind.

The loft comfortably sleeps 4-6 people in two bedrooms and on a sofa bed. The open living room and dining room combination with its exposed beams is a nice place for socializing. The kitchen is small but functional, with everything you need to prepare meals. The apartment offers a portable air conditioning unit and a dishwasher, as well as a washer and dryer just downstairs. Free parking is available close to the apartment.

From the Blue Door you can see a lot without a car since it is only a 10-minute walk to the train station. Since I stopped teaching in September 2012, I am now available to take you on excursions. We can design these together around the sights you'd like to see.

Amboise is the perfect place for exploring the Loire Valley, one of the most beautiful areas of France (with the chateaux of Chenonceau, Villandry, Chambord, and others). But there is much more to do than just the castles. Canoeing on the river; visiting the city of Tours, biking along the Loire, taking a hot air balloon ride, visiting the weekly markets...and for children...just down the street from the apartment is a summer swimming pool, a playground with zip line, mini golf, and small beaches.

I have been to Amboise 3 times before this trip and I am convinced that I could not have stayed in a better location or in a better unit. This apartment had it all: comfort, quiet, charming, great location, spotless, a view of the castle that is second to none and Chantal, whose …

Chantal was the most gracious host. She was responded to our messages in a timely manner. She was literally waiting for us at the street corner as our rental car pulled over. Her property was completely furnished and it had the most gorgeous view of the Amboise chateau. And it w…

Unbelievable view of the chateau. Chantal is a wonderful host and Amboise is a convenient central spot to explore the Loire Valley. The apartment is spacious and there's plenty of room for 4 people. Highly recommend!
