My husband and I live in Des Moines, Iowa, USA. We decided to spend an extended vacation in the Loire valley, 5 weeks being at La Porte Bleue in Amboise May 9 to June 13, 2015. We discovered the accommodation on the internet, were captured by its charming photos and prime location facing the Chateau Amboise, but convinced by the... More

My husband and I stayed in the charming ground floor apartment for 2 nights. It was roomy, clean and comfortable. The location could not have been better! It is a 5 minute walk to cafes and shops, the view is outstanding, it is quiet (with the sounds of the river flowing by), and free parking is nearby. Chantal offers the... More

My friend and I stayed at La Porte Bleue in September 2015. Our hostess Chantal graciously offered to meet us at the train station when we arrived in Amboise, and we took her up on that. The home is simply charming; the location perfect (a 5-min walk over the bridge to everything in Amboise), and the view of the chateau... More

Like other reviewers, we wish we could have stayed longer (next time!). Chantal was a wonderful hostess and helped us with suggestions on places to visit in the area. We stayed in the upstairs apartment with the most amazing view of Chateau Amboise across the river Loire. The rooms were clean and included two bedrooms (sleeps 4), living room, kitchen... More

Stayed in the ground floor apartment for just 2 nights but wish we would have stayed an entire week! The owner, Chantal, is a delight. She lives a few doors away, and shared much local information, restaurant tips, and maps. The location is unique and beautiful, just as pictured on their website ... Fabulous treat to open the kitchen window... More

Look no further! Stay here!! Amboise is a great town to base yourselves to see the chateaux in the Loire Valley and this location in Amboise is unbeatable. We stayed in the downstairs apartment which was huge for the two of us, comfortable and has everything you could ask for (from a very well equipped kitchen to washer/dryer in the... More

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
