The Blue Door was exactly what we were looking for. A great view across the river to Château Amboise and an easy walk to everything we needed (basically restaurants and night, pastries in the morning and Châteaus during the day). As an added bonus, Chantal was great. Email before, during and after our stay, met us at the door, welcomed... More

I did a lot of web research before I booked and could not find a single bad word said about this place. The reason of course is the wonderful host Chantal who has so cleverly provided a gorgeous comfortable apartment at such a reasonable rate. I'm not sure I can add much that all the other reviewers have't already said.... More

We messed up our dates and arrived a day early and without blinking Chantal put us up for the night at no extra cost and was most convivial throughout our stay booking us into a restaurant the first night. When we got into the cottage the next day we were stunned at how beautiful it had been decorated with its... More

A gorgeous, very large apartment on a tiny island on the Loire with an unobstructed (and picture-perfect) view of a chateau – what's not to love? As the other reviewers have said, Chantal is a treasure – fantastically helpful and a wonderful host. Can't recommend this B&B highly enough.

I can't say enough about this special place. The view of a chateau (a huge castle) from the front window is more than enough to make your stay spectacular. Yet the owner is the nicest person you've ever met - you'll feel like she's family right away. She is quick to respond to your request to stay and is very... More

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
