The gates, in the middle of a tiny ancient street, in the midst of Amboise, open to reveal a beautiful, hidden oasis in a perfect location. Amboise is central to much of the chateau countryside and Gloria and Bob are wonderfully helpful hosts. The rooms and property are exquisite, the breakfast, sumptuous and the town, charming.
This is a perfect base from which to explore a multitude of chateaus as well as nearby Tours and many towns in the Loire Valley. All of the rooms appear beautifully appointed and the gardens, inside the enclave, an inviting respite at the end of the day.
