Amazing apartment, so beautiful and well furnished. Cecile is an amazing host and made me feel so welcome. Best location in Tours - thoroughly recommended!
an amazingly beautiful apartment. Overlooking a grand courtyard and beyond to the Basilica St Martin. Very roomy, and very tastefully decorated. Very modern. The position is perfect, easy walking distance to everywhere, and oh so quiet.
Our host Cecile was wonderful. She went out of her way to help us. Way beyond the call of duty.
L'appartement de Cécile est un petit bijou pour ceux qui aiment le calme et l'esthétique. Il est à la fois bien pensé, chaleureux et très bien situé. Cécile est une hôte accueillante, prévoyante et je retournerai dans son appartement sans hésiter quand je reviendrai à Tours.
This apartment is AMAZING! Perfectly designed, beautifully decorated, centrally located and SPOTLESS. We had a great time. The house is walking distance to shopping and great places to eat. The apartment has everything you need you could possibly need. (a wine opener, a guide for the area, phone, CD player, TV etc.)
Un très bel appartement au coeur de Tours. En entrant dans cet ancien cloitre, la surprise est réelle. Vous avez immédiatement la sensation de profiter d'un lieu d'exception, réservé à quelques privilégiés... L'appartement est très lumineux et aménagé avec goût, la vue est étonnante (basilique, cloitre,...) : un véritable dépaysement. Cécile vous réserve un accueil à la hauteur des lieux : disponible, aimable, souriante. Nous y reviendrons.
Un lieu unique au coeur de Tours! Appartement rénové récemment, très bien équipé, au calme d'un ancien cloître, en face d'une basilique... Un havre de paix. En plus de l'avoir décoré avec goût, Cécile nous a accueilli, au sein de son appartement très chaleureusement. A coup sûr, si nous sommes de passage à Tours, nous serons où nous arrêter!
My fiancé and I just spent 4 days at Cecile’s apartment in Tour and the entire experience was absolutely splendid!! The apartment and the property are beautiful, the location was superb (and central) and Cecile was the perfect host. We were due to arrive on Sept. 6th at 7/7:30pm but due to the perfect storm of traffic challenges, we didn’t arrive until nearly midnight. We kept in touch with Cecile throughout our journey; she was extremely understanding and only asked that we be careful and take our time. Upon our arrival, she greeted us happily, with a smile, and insisted on carrying my luggage across the courtyard. Even with it being so late, she graciously drove around with us, gave us a quick tour of “Tour”, showed us where to park and even where to grab a late-night bite.
It also, just so happened, to be my fiancé’s Birthday on Sept. 8th and I wanted to have a surprise breakfast for him. We had only made our reservation for the apartment about a week prior to our arrival but I reached out to Cecile and she was happy to assist. She arranged everything (food, set-up, candles, flowers, etc.) and it was perfect and beautiful. I was even able to get her his gift and card in advance and she made sure they were included in the table scape!!
The apartment was spotless, new and modern, but extremely comfortable and exactly as it’s represented on-line. Overall it was a flawless experience and we definitely plan to return.
Hugs and Love from the United States,
Coffi & Brandon : )
This is a ridiculously beautiful apartment. It is one large room (with a small sectioned off bedroom in the back), but the details of the design of this apartment are incredible. Even the sink faucets are fancy! The modern, sleek design has a really cool contrast to the classical surroundings. The view from the apartment is absurdly good, the building itself and the courtyard are both overwhelmingly charming, the location in Tours could not be better, and Cécile is super welcoming and patient. Nice bathtub, comfortable bed, very very peaceful surroundings, and a really cool kitchen with everything you'd need to make a great meal. Zero to complain about here! This is very much worth the price and I'd love to live in this apartment. P/S Rent a bike in town and take the 10 mile ride (all flat and easy - no athleticism required!) to Villandry chateau. This bike ride is my top 3 favorite things I've ever done in my entire life, no joke. Stupidly gorgeous scenery as you bike along farms and rivers and say "Bonjour" to every farmer you pass.
Absolutely beautiful property! Most amazing on my trip. The apartment itself was very comfortable and had great a great kitchen/bathroom. The apartment is located inside an estate, that has its own beautiful garden ad an excellent view of St Martins Basilica, which is beautifully lit up at night. You can sit in the kitchen and have a very peaceful experience.
Cecile’s apartment is exquisite – just as the photos show. Quiet, peaceful and right in the centre of Tours only meters from a supermarket and wonderful specialty food shops. Cecile was an absolutely delightful host. She went out of her way to make our stay five star. When we had a medical emergency she even offered to drive us to a doctor should we need it. I couldn’t more highly recommend Cecile and her apartment. A wonderful experience.
