We loved Les Carmes from the moment we walked in to the apartment. It is very characterful, well furnished, light, beautifully clean and extremely comfortable. We stayed for five nights and didn't want to leave. The apartment is brilliantly located in the old part of Tours, close to shops and restaurants and next to the Loire....heaven. The owners Fabrice and Frederique are very helpful and the booking process was easy and professional. I would highly recommend this property.

“A real home away from home!”

Traveling with my children (8 and 10) and my spouse, we found the apartment to be perfectly located. The beds and sheets are comfortable, everything is clean and all the amenities are available to feel just like home. I would highly recommend this rental if you are in the Loire region to visit castles.

“Exceptional accommodation in a great location!”

We were really impressed with the layout, the furnishing and the finish of this apartment. Kitchen very well equipped, comfortable living area and wonderful bathrooms and bedrooms. We also appreciated that the bedrooms were on opposite ends of the apartment which gave much more privacy.
The location is really great. Dozens of outdoor restaurants and bars within a couple of minutes; handy to pick up a baguette or croissants in the morning. We really enjoyed the people watching. Tours is very central to so many interesting spots to visit. We were glad that we had made this our headquarters for our Loire visit.
We would certainly recommend this apartment and we hope you enjoy yourselves as much as we did.

Having been terribly delayed by the storms, we really appreciated the considerate way in which new arrangements were made for us to collect the key. In fact, Fabrice and Frederique are fantastically efficient and very keen to do things well. The apartment is stylish, comfortable, well- equipped and warm. Its proximity to the old town is a real advantage and allows you to do everything on foot. A great place to stay. A little noise from the square on Saturday night is a price worth paying for this excellent apartment.

“Superb!”

We stayed in this apartment with 2 young adults. Wonderful apartment, tastefully decorated and fully kitted out. The standard of furnishings and fittings at least equal that found in any hotel. The layout is ideal - everyone has privacy and a large common area to sit, chat, eat and enjoy a glass of wine.

We were warmly welcomed by Helene who was also kind enough to take us to the train station on the morning of our departure. For the foodies amongst you, it is also within easy walking distance of Les Halles. The apartment is ideally situated, next to Place Plumerau with a huge range of bars and restaurants nearby. It sits in the old part of Tours - the surrounding architecture is a pleasure in itself.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. We will certainly go back.
