The common sitting room and the breakfast one took in it were both lovely. The grounds are also very well kept up, and the pool looked inviting. The location is excellent, well within walking distance of everything. The hostess is charming. We actually stayed longer for breakfast than we intended on our final day before leaving for Paris since it was so comfortable there, and we were engaged in wonderful conversation with another couple from the us. There is also convenient parking on the premises.
This is a b&b with three apartments. The one we stayed in was really for one person: the double-bed, shower, toilet and sink were in one small room with a small frosted glass divider separating the bed from the toilet and sink. The shower was open to the room. It helps if you have to have lived together for 37 years, as we have, to agree to this set-up, and still give it the positive rating that I did. If you don't like showering or going to the toilet in front of someone don't stay in this room. We did see one of the other apartments and it was much larger and lovely. Our hostess did offer to let us look elsewhere in the city for another apartment when we arrived, but we were tired, it was late, and she was charming and the rest of the b&b was very comfortable, so we stayed.
Exquisite room in a private house, private gardens, owner extremely helpful, great breakfast
This was the best stay during our entire trip to France. We would go back in an instant! The room was huge and magnificent with french doors to a beautiful garden with a swimming pool. The bathroom was more or a spa with a tub, shower with numerous jets, two sinks, and private toilet. Big beautiful towels and bathrobes were set out for us. The petit dejeuner was beautifully presented and our hostess was absolutely divine. As a bonus we had a private parking spot in a garage. We couldn't ask for anything more!
Everything was wonderful.
friendly proprietor who took trouble to ensure we were comfortable, swimming pool to ourselves, very nice large room, good breakfast, convenient location
It was quite pricey even allowing for unfavourable £:euro ratio
The owners had a nice balance of being nice and helpful, but not invasive. I felt as if I was at home. It was very relaxing and quiet. Having only 3 rooms is nice...there weren't too many people coming in and out so it was more private. They have a private courtyard in the back which was very pretty. I definitely recommend the hotel. The owners are very sweet people and very good hostesses.
They didn't have central air but they had a fan. However, I found that none of the hotels I stayed in in Amboise, Saumur and Paris had central air so just be prepared.
