As we entered the gate, we were pleasantly surprised to see a beautiful manor house. The entrance revealed pretty gardens and fountain. We were greeted at the front door by Gloria, who offered us a glass of wine almost immediately. What a great character she is. Sprinkled in our conversations she shared some of her varied life experiences and opinions....

Gloria is an excellent host, we felt like staying in a friend's home and it was a very pleasant stay. It is such a beautiful place, you would see the effort that Gloria & Bob put into it. Amble public area for visitors including living room, garden, observatory. You can spend your day there without going out, it's so relaxing....

Stepping through the doors of the beautifully restored Le Vieux Manoir, we were immediately welcomed by our wonderful hostess, Gloria, who has anecdotes aplenty gathered throughout her colourful and interesting life.Both she and her husband Bob made us feel completely at home, and always had time to impart their local knowledge of the Amboise area.

My wife and I stayed for three nights with Gloria and Bob. It took a bit to find the location, tucked away but still near the center of Amboise. Gloria greeted us with a nice glass of wine, and proceeded to give fascinating details about how Americans can understand French sensibilities. We stayed in Colette - a beautiful room with...

Simply superb! The best B&B in Amboise. Gloria and the staff are so welcoming. Her passion for hospitality are obvious and well represented. The rooms are very clean and well furnished from Gloria's personal collections. The grounds are top notch and well maintained. The breakfast is tasty, local and seasonal. Well done. I highly recommend!

What a beautiful place--from the rose-filled garden to the antique-filled room replete with wonderful smelling soap and hair products, thick towels and washcloths, as well as soft toilet paper (the last two items being unusual in France!) Breakfast was delicious and came with the proprietress's homemade jam. Speaking of the owner, she was a delightful and very helpful American ex-pat.
