Wonderful apartment in central Tours
This was a wonderfully located and delightful apartment. The host is a pleasure to work with. It was quiet and well appointed and it is a great jumping off point for touring the Loire Valley. The stairs were fine for us but could be tough for someone with knee issues - otherwise I would say go and you will have no regrets.

Chic appartement
This is a lovely apartment with stylish, high quality furnishings and a beautifully equipped kitchen. And Jean Philippe is an excellent host. If you are in Tours on a Sunday, don't miss the local market just 10 minutes walk from the apartment. You'll find excellent offerings to enjoy in your home-away-from-home! The 'halles' are also within easy walking distance for weekday shopping. There are lots of great things to do in Tours. We loved our stay here and highly recommend the apartment.

Very comfortable
The host, Jean Philippe, was very helpful. The apartment is in a perfect location - walking distance (within 2km) to the train station, Place Plumereau, Cathdral, Tourist Office, etc. Lovely tree lined avenue to stroll. Great kitchen with a fabulous coffee machine. Very relaxing - a great place to stay.

A wonderful apartment - you could not ask for more
My wife and I just completed a month long stay at the apartment. It was everything we had ever hoped for and more. The landlord Jean Phillipe is excellent. The picking up of the keys was seamless given he lives across the hall from the apartment. We arrived in the mid afternoon on a sunday. With the markets closed he added a nice touch - he provided breakfast or us so we had something for the next day. The apartment is very well equipped. The kitchen is great. The sunlight during the day is amazing. The appliances are all new and in great condition. The living room has everything you need. The apple home theatre is nice but all the programming was in French so we did not use. The bedrooms were in the attic; the beds very comfortable. The staircase going up is from the 1800s so its tight but thats the charm. Lots of steps going up to the apartment and there is no elevator so be prepared. The stairs are wide though and we had no problem with them at all. The location is perfect. Its right in the middle of town. A 1km walk to the train station. It took about 20 mins at a leisurely pace. The same distance to the old historic Place Plumerau. There is a market in the boulevard (right outside the entrance) every Wed and Sat and Les Halles (a covered produce, meat, cheese market) within a 10 min walk. We stayed for a month and could have stayed a lot longer. This apartment was a gem of a find. If we ever find ourselves in Tour again, we would certainly stay here again.

Wonderful apartment, wonderful host.
We had a fabulous holiday in Tours. Jean Philippe's apartment is beautiful, charming, extremely well-appointed and in a great location. Jean Philippe leaves nothing to chance. His apartment is taseful, fully-equipped with every mod-con from the kitchen to the sitting room. I really enjoyed using his books on the Loire Valley, on French wine and on French cheese. It is Jean Philippe's immaculate taste, manners, helpfulness and willingness to do anything to help one's stay be further enhanced that made our visit to the Loire Valley a wonderful experience and one that is only the start of many more. Míle buíochas leat a Jean Philippe.

Book it now, it's that great
The apartment is as great as it looks in the pictures. We loved cooking dinner and enjoying the Tours skyline after a day of sight seeing! The kitchen was outfitted the way a real chef would outfit their home kitchen and was a delight. Our host was fabulous! Let us in right on time, showed us what we needed to know, left us to enjoy the place, and check-out was super simple. The train station and tourist office (and hence day-tour pickup location) is an easy 15 minute walk. Our only regret is that we only spent 3 nights and planned all our time visiting chateaux; could have used at least another day to see Tours itself. Do be aware that the ceiings are low in the shower and bedrooms. At 5'8" we had no problems but I think someone 6 feet tall would hate it. Also the toilet is on a different floor than the bedrooms; could be an issue for some.

Beautiful duplex
We loved this apartment. It was beautiful and well located, in an old building with all the modern conveniences. The TV system, which makes you feel like you're in a cinema, is an added bonus. Jean-Phillipe, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. Our AC unit stopped working during a heatwave and he immediately went out and bought us a new one. I highly recommend this apartment.
