This B&B was definitely a splurge for us, but I'd go back again. We loved talking to the owners and they were incredibly helpful with everything we needed. They also went out of their way to make breakfast for us an hour earlier than usual because of our schedule. Gloria is definitely deadpan and says what she thinks, and that... More

Le Vieux Manoir is the perfect place to stay. It is picturesque, elegant and brimming with history. What made it stand out for us though were our hosts, Gloria and Bob, with all their natural warmth and charm. Truly, a very special place.

I would return to Amboise just to stay at Le Vieux Manoir again. The grounds are beautiful, with well-tended flowers, grass, and fountains in front and back. The house has character and fits its surroundings, with comfortable rooms tastefully decorated and modern bathroom facilities stocked with locally made, chemical-free soap and shampoo. The breakfasts are homemade (Gloria was once a... More

Our stay at Le Vieux Manoir far exceeded our expectations. We only slated 2 days for our Loire Valley visit before traveling to Paris. We wish we'd planned more time. We were welcomed with great conversation and glasses of Brenache. Gloria and Bob were the absolute best hosts. They were warm and welcoming with lots of great suggestions for dining... More

We just returned home from our first trip to France. We loved Paris and Bayeux, but one of the highlights of our trip was our stay at Le Vieux Manoir in the Loire Valley. Gloria and Bob were gracious hosts - welcoming us to their beautiful Manoir. We were greeted every morning with a lovely French breakfast - fruit, juice,... More

This was my second visit to Le Vieux Manoir. I enjoyed it so much two years ago that for this trip I adjusted our schedule so that we could stay here. The rooms are simply beautiful. Each room showcases Gloria's exquisite decorating talent and eye for detail. The grounds are equally lovely; though what really makes a stay at Le... More

How can so many travelers have the same thing to say about their experiences at the Manoir? Yes, the place is beautiful and well maintained; and yes, Gloria is just as described by other travelers. I don't want to point out the negatives, but would prefer to remember the good times and the great people we met during our stay... More

Le Vieux Manoir is situated down a rather unpromising little road and the turn through the gates is rather sharp for a big car but, once inside, this is a quiet and beautiful place. Gloria greeted us at the door and invited us to sit down with her and have a drink. She and Bob love France and love their... More

I travel frequently, and travel in Europe several times each year. On this trip, my group rented both of the small houses for three nights. Everything everyone says about the facilities is right on target. It's a beautiful property in a beautiful town in a beautiful part of France. Gloria was very pleasant with me and some of my guests,... More

I have been waiting for your review and I'm so glad to have a chance to respond....When the three women in your group allerted us to the theft that had occured within your group, while in Paris, we were concerned. Your young companion, who insisted on coming into the Manoir without shoes or a bottoned shirt, was not only rude... More

We loved our stay at Vieux Manoir! Just back from three nights in the village of Amboise at this super charming, impeccably restored manor house with lovely gardens, engaging hostess, thoughtful breakfast featuring local and home baked products, that we used as a base to explore the Loire valley. We should have stayed the week. Our room was a bit... More
