We stayed overnight in Sylvie's place. We arrived late from Mont St. Michel and Monsieur was very kind to wait up for us. We had a comfortable place for the night, cozy bed and clean towels and high quality amenities. The next day was an exciting one having met Madam Sylvie, the children wanted to stay longer if not pressed... More

Very nice B & B in old town. The room is very private & sits on a quiet courtyard. Good restaurants & the chateau are within easy walking distance. The owner is very nice & helpful & her breakfast is the best we had on our trip.

I stayed here for 4 nights in September and it was lovely. The home is beautifully appointed and the attention to detail is great, everything is spotlessly clean and the place exudes charm from the moment you walk in. Mme Sylvie is a wonderful hostess, she has a lovely warm and welcoming manner and is super helpful, her perfect English... More

My wife and I stayed for four nights at this wonderful B&B in Amboise as a pwrt of our honeymoon in France in late September. I'll get the basics out of the way first - the B&B is a short 5 min stroll away from the restaurants in Amboise, has about 4 or five rooms, a pool, nice back yard... More

We spent a week at Au Charme Rabelaisien in September whilst exploring the chateaux and towns in this area of the Loire Valley. Mme Sylvie is a perfect host; she is warm and friendly, offering advice on your day’s itinerary without being intrusive. We had one of the lovely spacious garden rooms overlooking the pool, the rooms are kept spotlessly... More

I only stayed one night, but what an amazing place! Mme Sylvie could not have been more welcoming - even getting up at 6am to see me off to my early train. The whole place smells like some amazing French perfume - but not in a cloying way. There's private parking in one of the best locations in the wonderful... More

We arrived in Amboise in a heavy rainstorm. Mme Viarde welcomed us as long lost cousins, offered umbrellas, (we had them) and showed us to our beautiful and very well appointed room. She only has four rooms, all of which are beautiful and extremely clean and well appointed. She has her own private parking at the rear (very important in... More

From the moment we stepped into this B & B, we knew we had made the right choice. Amboise is a lovely town and the Loire Valley is as beautiful as can be, so there are several hotels and inns that get good ratings, but I doubt any could be more charming than this. We were greeted by Mme Sylvie,... More

A beautiful room in a grand setting in the heart of the Loire Valley. Our room on the ground floor in the main building was spacious and quiet. The breakfast was outstanding and you can get your eggs made to order. Our hostess Mme Viard was a joy to meet and as charming as her B&B. Amboise is a great... More
