“Noisy apartment in center of Amboise”
Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Warmly welcomed by Heliose who showed us around and was good enough to leave a bottle of wine in the fridge. As we travelled with our daughter she also provided some toys a cot and a high chair for her. The negatives are not a reflection of her warm hospitality but need to be mentioned, the apartment has been made from converting part of an old house into a holiday let. This meant that the apartment is tiny. Also all you can hear are the neighbors above as the floor and walls are very thin. The house is also located on a main road so you do hear the noise of the cars going past the living room window. The apartment is also very dark with very little natural light which is then provided by the street light shining through the apartment at night which the curtains do not block any of the glare.

I am delighted that you are a traveler who keeps his promises.
You have arrived at the apartment late afternoon and barely two hours after you request a full refund, otherwise you leave a bad comment. It's done.

You are right, the house is divided into two apartments because it was built for half the 17th century and the other party in the 30's.
We fully renovated two apartments in 2013, with the latest standards required. Both apartments are ranked 2 and 3 stars by the Ministry of Tourism.

The walls and windows are insulated. There are shutters and blackout curtains in all windows.The parquet from 17th century is actually a bit noisy. You will find this problem in all buildings of the historic city center.
The house and its courtyard have double exposure and enjoy the sun in the morning and the afternoon.
Finally, the heart of Amboise has lot of traffic during peak hours.
The room was moved on the courtyard side to not suffer the nuisance of the street.

You are my first case of comment blackmail.
The direction of Holiday Lettings / TripAdvisor is aware of your behavior and our various email exchanges.
They have renewed their trust in me.
I do and will continue to pay attention to the welfare of travelers who come to enjoy our beautiful area.

I would not wish for any owner to live this experience with you.

“Great apartment in great location - highly recommended”

I had a fantastic week in Amboise, Loire Valley. I was greeted by Wilfried at the train station who showed me around Amboise, and where to park the car. Wilfried and Heloise are perfect hosts keeping in contact with before my stay to answer all questions I had. Wilfried showed me around their lovely apartment. The layout of the apartment is spacious, starting with a large courtyard where I would enjoy an aperative in the afternoons. The kitchenette is small but has everything needed to cook as well as a dishwasher, which was a nice surprise. The dining and lounge rooms are a good size for two people. The bedroom is nice with a very comfortable bed and sufficient storage space. The bathroom is outstanding and very luxurious which also has a washing machine, a must when travelling. The location is perfect to walk around and see all the attractions and in walking distance to the chateau royal d'Amboise as well as Leonardo Da Vinci park. I hired a car from Saint-Pierre-Des-Corps which is the next town by train away. A vehicle is definitely needed in the Loire Valley to visit the many chateau's and quaint villages in the region. Heloise was kind enough to email me this information a month before my arrival which was greatly appreciated, as I would have missed out on seeing many of the chateau's in the region. There is a free car park behind the apartment with easy access to and from the car park. As mentioned all restaurants, bars, cafes, attractions, supermarket are located walking distance to the apartment which is very convenient. There are so many amazing bistros and restaurants that 7 days wasn't enough to try them all. Wilfried left me some business cards of the bistros and restaurants as well as the taxi service that he recommends, which was very helpful. If you stay in Amboise I highly recommend staying at Heloise and Wilfried's apartment if it is available.

“Cosy Central appartment”

Central to town, easy walk. Free car parking just around the corner. We stayed there during unseasonally hot time, but flat was cool at night with upright fan & Heloise's tips on shutting outside shutters. Double glazing on windows also helped.
Our host, Heloise was very welcoming & gave us great tips for local restaurants.
We enjoyed convenience of dishwasher & washing machine.
Bed very comfortable
