I spent 4 nights in early September at this B&B, in the aptly named, "cosy" room. For a solo traveler the room was large enough, and very comfortable. The morning breakfasts were very good. Breads, meats, fruit, cheese, and a soft-boiled egg were quite a treat. As Rick Steves suggests, Amboise is centrally located for visits to the chateaux between Tours and Blois.
Madame Sylvie was a friendly hostess, ready with suggestions for chateau visits and places for dinner. One of my better meals in France was at her suggestion in "Le Patio."
Parking is in an enclosed, and locked car park that which has direct (but locked) access to the B&B.
