We are missing our little cottage in Amboise already. It was an authentic experience in the French countryside, which is what we wanted. Francioise and Thierry were so accommodating and looked after our every need. They were personable, warm and generous. We thank them very much for this and wish them all the very best. We would love to return. The cottage had all the amenities we required, and the option to ride the bikes into town for dinner was perfect - not to mention the welcome pack the Denay's provided. Thank you from the Blokkeerus Family.

Francoise was very welcoming and helpful. We were a bit disappointed with the location as we had to walk at least a km on a narrow , busy road with 3 young children before we reached a footpath into Amboise. We weren't as close to the centre as we thought we would be. The gite was charming but in need of some maintenance ( shower completely drenched bathroom floor every time). the kitchen was well- equipped for cooking if at home.

The four of us had a wonderful time in Amboise staying at the lovely place belonging to Francoise and Thierry. They were both very kind and helpful, even picking us up from the train station which was greatly appreciated. The house is well equipped with everything you need and the beds are very comfortable. The rooms are very nicely decorated. The town is great with lots of nice restaurants and cafes. Highly recommended.

This is a lovely cottage nearby the main part of town but in a quiet and secluded residential area. We really enjoyed our stay and the beautiful outdoor spaces for dining and relaxing. The house is well equipped with all kitchen items you will need for cooking meals to enjoy in the garden or in the indoor dining area. The beds are very comfortable. There is also a washer and dryer, although it was nice to use the outdoor clothes line for quickly drying clothes in the warm weather. We especially enjoyed a wine tasting at Francoise and Thierry's wine cave next to the cottage. They make wonderful wines which you can also enjoy during your visit. As for Amboise, it is such a beautiful town. We enjoyed visiting the house of DeVinci (Chateau Clos Luce) and the evening performance at the Chateau which was extremely well done. If you are there during the time of a performance make sure you get tickets (there are headsets translating the performance into English). Also, I highly recommend a little restaurant called La Fourchette. Make sure you reserve ahead as they only seat about 20 people per night. The food is very good and reasonably priced. We hope to return to this lovely cottage again for a longer stay. It was absolutely perfect!

Amboise is one of the Loire’s great towns, and this cottage is a lovely haven just outside it, with a beautiful big yard ringed with trees and populated by birds, butterflies and occasional wandering felines. The cottage is a little quirky. The stairway to the upstairs has some narrow and uneven treads, and a big stone threshold at one bedroom that might make it difficult for people who aren’t sturdy on their feet. But it’s also scrupulously clean, private, quiet and well-equipped. Most important: it has Francoise — one of the warmest hosts we’ve ever had. She genuinely enjoys people and wants to make sure that you will have a great time. When we arrived, she and Thierry met us with local cheese, cherry compote and a bottle of his wine and walked us through every room. When we discovered a wifi problem, she tried to fix it, and then brought over a friend to troubleshoot and resolve it immediately. She provided contacts, phone calls, and suggestions. A great experience!
