A home away from home

"Alison was the perfect hostess. She was friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. The room was exactly as described and the breakfasts were beyond words - she was a chef in a previous career and it certainly showed with the cornucopia of homemade items served at breakfast. - not your typical French breakfast. All Covid precautions were taken and we could not have felt safer or enjoyed our stay more. Could not have had a better location for Amboise (parking and walking all over town) or for the Loire Valley. Our stay here (3 nights) earned highest marks on everything that we look for in a B&B.

Robert Crews

Hospitality at its finest!

"Probably the best place to stay in Amboise. Alison is a perfect host who will make sure you have a pleasant stay! It’s everything you would expect from a nice local B&B - you will be treated to a homemade breakfast with freshly baked bread, pain au chocolat and muffins! "

Great B&B experience and Amboise

"Breakfast was very good. Alison, the host, is a chef by training, so everything was made fresh. Alison is very knowledgeable, warm and hospitable."


"Very warm welcome by Alison who is French/English bilingual. Very comfortable bed. Spotlessly clean and Covid rules applied meticulously. Our room at the rear of the house was extremely quiet, but it's a quiet street anyway, walking distance from centre. Tea/coffee facilities in room on request. Superb breakfast".

Excellent place at an amazing location

"A great choice to explore the fascinating Loire châteaux. Breakfast and diner were perfect and attention to the detail is the signature of Alison’s B&B."


A gem in Amboise

"Wonderful stay. Everything perfect and Alison was so welcoming and friendly. Wonderful room and delicious breakfast with homemade bread. Thank you so much."


"Very nice"

"Same as the advertised pictures. Everywhere near here and walking distance. A lots of public parking spaces nearby. The host was helpful and knowledgeable about our trips. Also beautiful table setting on our breakfast.
- We could hear foot steps from corridor , made a noise. But not bothered by it."


Perfect homely stay in the heart of the town!

"Alison is a fantastic, helpful and very engaging host! We were looked after well during our 3 night stay. Breakfast had freshly cooked pastries, bread and various cakes each day. We also enjoyed a fabulous dinner at B&B, highly recommended!"



" Very good breakfast. Very friendly landlady. Perfect English. Exceptional rooms."


"Beautiful hotel in Amboise."

"This has been one of the best B&B ever. Very cozy, lovely decoration, very nice patio, bedroom and bathroom very comfortable and impeccable. Breakfast is luxurious and Alison, our hostess, treated us with affection and kindness as if we were family. One night we had dinner there and it was the best meal of the whole trip, she's a spectacular chef! Thank you very much."



"Very nice B&B, very nice, lovely hosts, we will gladly come back.
Lovingly designed room and super clean. Great cozy bed, and such a delicious breakfast with sensationally delicious homemade bread and croissants, just perfect. Thank you for the good time, next time we'll definitely have dinner with us!"
