This is a perfect apartment in a perfect location! Truly the best place we've stayed using Airbnb.
Nathalie is an awesome host! She gave excellent directions to arrive at the apartment. She had great suggestions on where to go and what to do, and she has placed a lot of excellent tourist information in the apartment. Nathalie also oriented us to the town, giving us the essential locations (banks, grocery stores, restaurants).
The apartment itself was wonderful. The off-street parking in a small courtyard adjacent to the apartment was very convenient. In addition to the cookware, Nathalie had thoughtfully provided basics for cooking (salt, pepper, oil...) and cleaning (washing machine and dish detergent) as well as coffee and tea (loved the coffee maker!).
The living, dining, and kitchen area had plenty of space, making it nice for relaxing. The bed and pillows were excellent and very comfortable. The Internet connection was superb!
The location of the apartment was perfect. The street was exceptionally quiet yet just minutes on foot to shops and restaurants, the chateau, and the river. Given the timing of our visit, the town was festively decorated for the holiday season, and the pedestrian zone quite lively.
This is the perfect place to use as a base to explore the Loire Valley chateaux. Chambord, Cheverny, Chaumont, and Amboise are all within ten miles (16 km), and the small villages and hamlets along the way were a delight to explore.
