Amboise is unique in that it has the only inhabited island on the Loire River. The Blue Door is located on this island just across from the Chateau d'Amboise so it provides an incredible view of the river and castle. From the apartment you can listen to the Loire River rushing by and gaze at the chateau. You can be in the center of town with a pleasant 2-minute walk. And after a long day of sightseeing in the region, the Blue Door is the perfect place to unwind. Les photos parlent d'elles-même de la situation exceptionnelle de la Porte Bleue. En complément, voici quelques précisions sur son aménagement intérieur. La Porte Bleue is exceptional. The photos speak for themselves. Here are some close ups of the interior which show the updates.

En complément, voici quelques précisions sur son aménagement intérieur. La Porte Bleue is exceptional. The photos speak for themselves. Here are some close ups of the interior which show the updates. La maison se compose de 2 logements indépendants et complets (cuisine, salle d'eau). La surface de chacun = 65 m2. The house has two independent apartments complete with kitchen and baths. They are 65m2 in area. Le REZ-DE-CHAUSSÉE est accessible par la porte bleue devant la maison. Il a une seule chambre et peut recevoir 2 ou 3 personnes. The ground floor is accessible by the blue door in front of the house. It has one bedroom and can accommodate 2-3 people. Le 1er ÉTAGE est l'ancien grenier qui a été aménagé en 2003. Avec 2 chambres, il peut recevoir 4 à 5 personnes. On y accède par une cour à l'arrière de la maison. The second floor is the former attic which was fixed up in 2003. With two bedrooms it can accommodate 4 to 5 people. Access to the second floor is through the courtyard behind the house. L'isolation a été très soignée : les hôtes ne se dérangent pas mutuellement. De nombreuses places de parkings sont proches et gratuites. The two apartments are nicely isolated from each other. With separate entrances, guests in the apartments do not bother each other. Parking is plentiful, free, and nearby. RÉSERVATION ET PRIX : Les prix indiqués ici sont indicatifs car j'applique une grille de prix dégressive dès la 2ème nuit. Ce sera donc moins cher que le prix indiqué sur le site. Prices shown hear are approximate because I use a grid of decreasing prices beginning with the second night. It can, therefore, be cheaper than what is indicated on the site. Je n'impose pas de durée minimum de séjour car cela peut varier selon les saisons et les disponibilités : je ne peux pas bloquer un gîte pour une seule nuit dans 6 mois, mais je peux accepter des réservations courtes si elles complètent le planning. I don't require a minimum stay because that varies depending on the season and availability. I cannot tie up the rental units for a single night during open blocks but I can accept short reservations if they work with existing bookings. Il faut donc m'écrire pour me demander quel gîte est libre et quel est le prix exact. You must write to me to determine the availability of each unit and the exact price. Thank you.

We booked The Blue Door on the strength of the purported view, and it did not disappoint. The Amboise Chateau, across the River, is the main window’s panorama. Breathtaking. The 4 of us made this cozy space home for a week, cooking on occasion and...More
