My husband & I stayed here for 3 nights in May 2012, we came here straight from our wedding for the 1st leg of our honeymoon & we couldn't have been happier with our accommodation choice! We were exhausted & Madame Sylvie was fantastic, she helped with luggage, put my bouquet into a vase and left us to rest. Perfect friendly service/ atmosphere but in no way overly intrusive.
We stayed in the Couture Room which is wonderfully decorated with choice antique furniture, it has an extremely comfy bed, lovely little seating area & ample space for suitcases etc, the double french doors lead straight out to the beautiful garden & swimming pool, perfect for a lazy sunny afternoon with cheese & wine from the local shops. The bathroom is very spacious with separate shower & big bath and has twin sinks as well as lovely fluffy towels & robes.
As a bit of a 'clean-freak' I was delighted to find the whole place totally immaculate, the linen smelt beautifully fresh everyday!
Breakfast comprises of fresh bread, croissants with jams, fresh coffee & cereals, fruits etc, all very typically French & delicious.
Located in the heart of Amboise, all main sights, restaurants etc are a 5-7min walk away.
I really couldn't recommend this place enough, it's bliss, beautiful & charming, the photo's on their website do not do it justice!!
