“A wonderful apartment - you could not ask for more”
Reviewed 5 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

My wife and I just completed a month long stay at the apartment. It was everything we had ever hoped for and more. The landlord Jean Phillipe is excellent. The picking up of the keys was seamless given he lives across the hall from the apartment. We arrived in the mid afternoon on a sunday. With the markets closed he added a nice touch - he provided breakfast or us so we had something for the next day.

The apartment is very well equipped. The kitchen is great. The sunlight during the day is amazing. The appliances are all new and in great condition. The living room has everything you need. The apple home theatre is nice but all the programming was in French so we did not use. The bedrooms were in the attic; the beds very comfortable. The staircase going up is from the 1800s so its tight but thats the charm.

Lots of steps going up to the apartment and there is no elevator so be prepared. The stairs are wide though and we had no problem with them at all.

The location is perfect. Its right in the middle of town. A 1km walk to the train station. It took about 20 mins at a leisurely pace. The same distance to the old historic Place Plumerau. There is a market in the boulevard (right outside the entrance) every Wed and Sat and Les Halles (a covered produce, meat, cheese market) within a 10 min walk.

We stayed for a month and could have stayed a lot longer. This apartment was a gem of a find. If we ever find ourselves in Tour again, we would certainly stay here again.

“Book it now, it's that great”
Reviewed 12 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The apartment is as great as it looks in the pictures. We loved cooking dinner and enjoying the Tours skyline after a day of sight seeing! The kitchen was outfitted the way a real chef would outfit their home kitchen and was a delight. Our host was fabulous! Let us in right on time, showed us what we needed to know, left us to enjoy the place, and check-out was super simple.

The train station and tourist office (and hence day-tour pickup location) is an easy 15 minute walk. Our only regret is that we only spent 3 nights and planned all our time visiting chateaux; could have used at least another day to see Tours itself.

Do be aware that the ceiings are low in the shower and bedrooms. At 5'8" we had no problems but I think someone 6 feet tall would hate it. Also the toilet is on a different floor than the bedrooms; could be an issue for some.

“Lovely place, great people”
Reviewed 10 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The two-bed apartment was beautiful, the location works great, close to the old town, but still quiet, and Jean Philipe was one of the most considerate hosts we have met so far.
Every small issue was addressed promptly, and we would certainly return on our next trip to Tours.

“Beautiful duplex”
Reviewed 12 November 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We loved this apartment. It was beautiful and well located, in an old building with all the modern conveniences. The TV system, which makes you feel like you're in a cinema, is an added bonus. Jean-Phillipe, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. Our AC unit stopped working during a heatwave and he immediately went out and bought us a new one. I highly recommend this apartment.

“Great apartment/duplex in Tours”
Reviewed 31 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our location in Tours was ideal for access to the city of Tours and the surrounding countryside. Jean Phillipe, the owner, was extremely helpful and accommodating with any of our needs or questions. The kitchen is lovely! Our five day was a true French experience!

So glad you enjoyed your stay! We do hope to see you again in the near future, perhaps in our new Joan of Arc's apartment, and of course with a free french cooking course. All the best,

“Really lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Jean Philippe was really lovely and helpful with lots of really good advice about Tours and the restaurants there, as he was showing us around his gorgeous duplex. He even had a computer with everything on and I could keep up with the sports back home! The beds were gorgeous and the quality of the rooms was superb - the best sleep we have had in ages. It is a lovely city and the duplex is situated on a gorgeous boulevard with a pleasant walk to all parts. We loved the cathedral light show with hundreds of people in the square on a beautiful evening. We came in on the TV from Paris which was a wonderful experience in itself, and walked the shortish journey to the duplex. Jean Philippe has a lovely set up there, even with a large cinema screen with UK news if you want. Many thanks for a fabulous 3 days, just wish it could have been more this time!

Many thanks for your very kind feedback. I have to say that you are the most cheerful guests I have welcomed. Thank you for your «joie de vivre»
And if you come back in the Loire Valley, I will offer you a free french cooking class.
See you soon, of course with your kitchen apron!
