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 ground floor apartment is 65 square meters and can accommodate 2-3 people. It offers a large living room and kitchen with big windows facing the chateau and a bedroom and bathroom facing the courtyard. In addition to its amazing view, the apartment offers wifi, a television, an iPod docking station, and a well-equipped kitchen.
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 television, portable air conditioning unit, and a dishwasher.
Both apartments have access to a washer and dryer in the building basement. Free parking is available nearby.
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 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 visiting the castles. You can canoe on the river; visit the city of Tours, bike along the Loire, take a hot air balloon ride, visit 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.
