We had the misfortune of planning our tour of the Loire River Valley for the first week of June during the record-breaking rains and flooding that France experienced at that time. It was our great good fortune, though, to have made a reservation for four nights at Le Vieux Manoir during that rain-drenched week. Everything about this beautifully restored and...

Our family group adored this unique manor. The property has been perfectly restored to its past grandeur by hosts Gloria and Bob. Walking through the classic garden is an oasis of calm. The interiors are fresh, grandly appointed, and full of interesting art. All this grandeur, and comfort as well. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

My wife and I together with our 18 yr old daughter spent two fabulous nights here. We should have stayed longer. This restored manor is delightful and comfortable. Gloria and Bob have done a great job with it. Plus Gloria is a great source for restaurants in the area. Do yourself a favor and stay at least 3 nights.

We really didn't know exactly what to expect when we booked a three nights stay as part of our three weeks France tour, but it turned out to be the most lovely place we stayed. My wife selected the Collette room from the online photos and it was exactly as shown. The decorations were meticulous and the room and bathroom...

Gloria and Bob were great hosts and we really enjoyed our stay. We highly recommend this B&B for anyone considering staying in Amboise. The included breakfast was really good. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Gloria also provides a glass of wine at the end of the day which was a nice treat. One of our...

A trip to France would now be incomplete for us without a few days in Amboise with Gloria and Bob. We had another great trip - stayed 5 nights this time - and enjoyed our time immensely. Our stay included both the Josephine and Collette rooms and we were surrounded by character and comfort in both. Gloria had ideas about...

Earlier this month we spent 4 nights at this exceptional B&B, located in the heart of Amboise. A lovely garden fountain muffles traffic sounds, and a glass of wine while sitting in the garden soothes after a day of travel. Gloria and Bob are cordial and witty hosts ready with great recommendations for restaurants and outings. Their home is stunningly...
