On the same site, you can see other room, (la chambre rose). Smaller than this one, it has the same accesses and it's less expansive.
Daniel was the sweetest and most welcoming host we could have asked for. Her place was lovely and her breakfast was exactly what we needed to start our day. The home is certainly the most unique we have stayed at, and quite comfortable. It was a pity we could not stay longer. My wife and I recommend this place to anyone visiting Tours - it really is a delight!
Enjoyed our short stay at Daniele's beautiful home. The room is clean, comfortable and has a wonderful view over the pretty garden and beyond. The ideal stopover place for our journey south and a delicious breakfast to send us on our way. Thank you Daniele.

Merci, merci à Danièle! Nous avons passé un super bon nuit chez elle. Elle nous a donné un très chaleureux accueil. La maison était super charmante, la chambre était spacieuse et confortable et le petit déjeuner était délicieux. De plus, Danièle nous a donné beaucoup de conseil pour notre seule nuit à Tours.
Merci encore! À la prochaine fois. :)
Nous avons été très bien accueilli par Danièle, une personne au grand (website hidden) maison est magnifique et mérite le détour. Ralph est conquis :-)
Nous avons hâte de revenir !

We had such a great time stating with Daniele! Her home is very fun and clean. She made two wonderful breakfasts and provided good advice for out trip. We will stay here again if we are in the area!
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Danièle : accueil très sympathique, maison originale et agréable, cadre idyllique. Nous recommandons sans hésitation.
Bonne continuation !
Merci beaucoup, Danièle et Benoît, pour votre accueil très chaleureux. Endroit charmant. Beaucoup de choses à voir à Tours. Balades en vélo recommandées aux alentours...
Wow, what a wonderful experience we've had! Danièle was such a welcoming host making great efforts to make us feel comfortable in her home. A tour of the home gave us an immediate understanding of the background to these houses and the hard work the Miquelestorna's have out into renovating and decorating their home. Breakfast was very satisfying with Danièle's homemade jams, croissants, toast, yoghurt, cereal and fruit. It was made even better because Danièle showed a real interest in our travels and was only too happy to guide us and provide maps and even a dictionary. Their home was central to all the Chateaus and Tours was an easy city to walk around, shop and dine in. We look forward to returning some day to Danièle's.
L'accueil que nous a réservé Danièle était très chaleureux. Elle était très disponible sans pour autant empiéter sur notre (website hidden) maison est ravissante et ne manque pas de charme. Le petit déjeuner agrémenté de confitures maison était très bon.
