We were certainly charmed by the Hotel Au Charme. Our room was quite large (yet warm in the winter) and the bathroom was humongous for France. The decor was thoughtful, with a touch of humor and whimsy! And the innkeeper was SO gracious and friendly–the best service we've received on our trip so far! There are only 10 rooms in...

Perfect location. Can walk to Amboise Chateau, other sites and great restaurants. Off street secure parking accessed via the property. Madame Sylvie still involved and was wonderful. Breakfast and parking extra but well worth it. Our room was on the first floor and huge. It was probably an owner suite at some point. King size bed and spa bathroom. There...

We basically just showed up hoping for a room and was greeted with a super friendly staff member and was offered a fantastic room for my family. The room is clean, modern and very spacious. I can't recommend this place enough!

A very warm welcome was given to us when we arrived and the rest of the stay matched it exactly. We spent one night in the prestige garden room (we travelled with our 8 year old daughter) and the stay was just perfect. Despite there being another garden room adjoining ours, we heard no noise whatsoever - extremely peaceful. We...

We had a relaxing and rejuvenating stay in this charming boutique hotel run by an attentive and friendly staff. Our room had retained aspects of historical character such as exposed wood beams, and at the same time was well appointed with contemporary conveniences like a spacious and modern bathroom, efficient air-conditioning, and reliable wifi. The hotel is situated at a...
