My husband and I stayed here for six nights in September. It was our good fortune to experience a B&B owned and operated by two of the most passionate hosts we've ever experienced.

We visited Amboise with our friends who have stayed at Le Vieux Manoir on three occasions.

Amboise is the perfect town from which to explore the Loire Valley. Gorgeous, compact and rich in history -- with wonderful shops and restaurants. Le Vieux Manoir feels intimate and tranquil, yet is smack dab in town. Which means you can easily walk to everything including the Chateau d' Amboise and the Clos Luce. Then, short drives take you to...

The highlight of our visit to the Loire Valley was staying here! We enjoyed the chateux but the weather wasn't cooperative (extremely hot!) and we were happy to get out of the heat to the comfort of Le Vieux ! Gloria and Bob have done a fantastic job both inside and out. The decor is warm, welcoming and absolutely gorgeous...
