Chantal has created a little French paradise in her delightful cottage, situated on the beautiful island in the middle of the magnificent Loire river. As a wonderfully artistic and creative person, Chantal's warm and welcoming interiors (both upstairs in the two bedroom apartment, and downstairs in the cottage), are a delight and her generous kitchen provides everything you could need...

Chantal was just as helpful and accommodating as other reviewers shared. The best part of the Blue Door is the obvious location. The view of the chateaux across the river is even closer and more beautiful than expected. The top floor is very cozy which reminded us of a cottage. Very comfortable beds, great gathering space and clean bathroom (and... More

We only wish we could have stayed longer than our three nights. The ground floor cottage is so roomy, cosy and has an unbeatable view of the Chateau across the river. The bed is very comfortable, the linen crisp and the towels fluffy and absorbent. Chantal was a wonderful host and made us feel so welcome. We also appreciated the... More

We were not keen to stay in mass-produced chain-style accommodation during our time in France and so we were looking for the smaller and more authentic places to stay. We made some excellent choices and La Porte Bleue was one of them. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment upstairs with our tween/teen daughters. It was very comfortable and charming... More

My wife, infant son and I stayed here for 5 nights. It was so pleasant we could have easily stayed twice as long. The upper suite we stayed in was spacious and comfortable. The views of the chateau are spectacular... it was really amazing to open the window in the evening and hear the river rushing by while you gaze... More

My family and I spent 4 nights here in late December. We couldn't have wanted for more. The site is fantastic across the river from the Chateau. The rooms are comfortable and the welcome very warm and friendly. Chantal was good company on the times we saw her and a font of knowledge of the area. The car park was... More

My wife and I spent two nights here on a Chateaux crawl in July 2013, and we couldn't recommend it more highly. The accommodation is comfortable, well located and easy to find, with everything you'd need. The view is to die for. I can't say how wonderful it is to wake in the morning, draw the curtains and have a... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights in the ground floor apartment at La Porte Bleue in late September. The apartment is wonderful. The main room, with kitchen and living room is large and very comfortable. It feels like home. The view from the kitchen table is out of a guidebook - straight on to Chateau Amboise. The setting on... More

My son and I stayed in La Porte Bleue for a week in July, 2012. It was everything it advertised. It was large, comfortable, and extremely clean. Chantal the owner was very friendly and helpful. While we were there she had ordered new beds and asked us to give her feedback. I can tell you the new beds were great.... More
