“Great place”

My family and I spent 4 nights here in late December. We couldn't have wanted for more. The site is fantastic across the river from the Chateau. The rooms are comfortable and the welcome very warm and friendly. Chantal was good company on the times we saw her and a font of knowledge of the area. The car park was a little down the street but that gave us another opportunity to admire the statue of Leonardo sitting looking across the river. We were very happy with our choice.

My wife and I spent two nights here on a Chateaux crawl in July 2013, and we couldn't recommend it more highly.

The accommodation is comfortable, well located and easy to find, with everything you'd need. The view is to die for. I can't say how wonderful it is to wake in the morning, draw the curtains and have a postcard view of the Chateau Amboise over breakfast.

The owner Chantal was lovely, popping in to make sure all was well, and with great help planning our daily trips.

“La Porte Bleue is Magical”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

My husband and I spent 3 nights in the ground floor apartment at La Porte Bleue in late September. The apartment is wonderful. The main room, with kitchen and living room is large and very comfortable. It feels like home. The view from the kitchen table is out of a guidebook - straight on to Chateau Amboise. The setting on Ile d'Or, a short walk over a bridge to the historic center, could not be better. And Chantal is a wonderful host. She is generous with her enthusiasm for the area and with her advice. She recommended visiting the Chateau Blois, which turned out to be a perfect chateau visit. We will definitely be back.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My son and I stayed in La Porte Bleue for a week in July, 2012. It was everything it advertised. It was large, comfortable, and extremely clean. Chantal the owner was very friendly and helpful. While we were there she had ordered new beds and asked us to give her feedback. I can tell you the new beds were great. Very comfortable.

Chantal picked us up at the train station even though I told her we could walk to the gîte. She loves meeting people and knows when to leave people alone and when to offer advice. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
