    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Manoir les Minimes Amboise

    A must!

    from

    What a lovely place with such gracious staff. It was truly like staying in an old English manor. We stayed in the less expensive rooms on the top floor and it felt like a steel. We faced the castle, and although the window was small, the room was so comfortable and beautifully appointed, that we did not mind. Plus, it is quiet and within walking distance of the town, castle, great food, etc. I absolutely recommend this lovely establishment.

    The Life

    from

    Staying at Le Manoir les Minimes we truly experienced all that goes with the good life. Lounging in the living room we felt as comfortable as in our own home. A haven to come back to after touring the beautiful countryside during the day. Helpful and friendly staff. And a bonus during our May, 2003 stay, a group of touring Jaguars surrounding the drive . . . mmmm. As my title says this is THE LIFE.

    You must stay here!

    from

    Affordable luxury! Beautiful 17th century manor fully renovated in 1998 with all modern facilities and plumbing. LMLM is beautiful outside and in! Located in cute town Amboise (great base to explore the valley from) on the Loire river. We had a king bed, large room and bathroom (even larger than many US hotels!) with gorgeous views of river and Chateau d'Amboise. Staff speaks English and extremely helpful. At 120 euros per nite (double) in late-Sept, we wish we could've stayed longer! Would definitely come back again.P.S. This hotel is also widely recommended in several other tour guide books that were proudly on display in their lobby.

    Worth the splurge

    from

    We felt like we were getting away with something by staying at this beautiful manor. Our room was perfect with wood beams and a giant tub.

    The views of the river and chateau were gorgeous. Within walking distance of the town and many nice restaurants. The staff were very friendly. This place was such a welcome treat after trying to stay within "budget"!

    The most excellent Manoir les Minimes

    from

    We stayed for three nights at the Manoir les Minimes. Impeccably furnished so tastefully and with such a warm welcome from all the staff, this was all one could wish for from an hotel. The breakfast was beautifully presented with fresh fruit and viennoiserie of superb quality - the continental breakfast at its very best. The quiet, and the views of the river and castle added to the atmosphere, we will certainly return. Edmund & Ghislaine Nankivell.

    You too should stay at Le Manoir Les Minimes !

    from

    You too should try a wonderful stay at the very personalized Le Manoir Les minimes !!!Being a Tour Operator, I always search for the best places to stay with my small groups. This is why I chose to stay at Le Manoir Les Minimes in Amboise, a beautiful small town, full of history and located on the banks of the Loire River in the gorgeous Loire Valley.The owners Patrice Longet & Eric Deforges will greet you warmly into their beautifully renovated home. Their rooms are exquisite, the breakfast is exactly what one would hope for in such a place, the garden overlooks the Castle, and some of their rooms even have views of the river. I could only wish everybody who visits this area could stay in this lovely Manor House and experience such a warm welcome and relaxing stay.Enjoy as much as I did on my last visit !!Mr Faberger.

    Don't Miss Le Manoir les Minimes

    from

    Cindy and Ed stayed at Le Manoir les Minimes in June 2003 and we loved it so much we are going back next year! We were only going to stay 3 nights, but we enjoyed it so much we stayed 7 nights. The staff at the hotel are friendly and helpful with sightseeing, car and bike rentals, restaurant reservations and recommendations and general knowledge of the Loire Valley. We especially enjoyed the home-like atmosephere of the Manoir, the beautiful furnishings and the wonderful bathrooms.

    Everything was superb, we did not want to leave. Amboise is a convenient location for visiting the Loire and the town is charming.

    Amboise, Loire Valley: Le Manoir les Minimes

    from

    "Le Manoir Les Minimes" is a quiet and pleasant hotel. Located on the Loire River, close to the Chateau d'Amboise, this beautiful residence was built in the 1700s and was entirely restored. The interior decor is elegant and refined with wonderful objects of art. Each bedroom is unique and all have sumptuous views on the Château of Amboise and the River Loire, including exposed beams and wonderful tapestries. These are the details which create the ambiance and make all the difference.We liked the spacious bedroom with the king-size bed and the wonderful bathroom with two heavy bathrobes and lots of fluffy towels, also shampoo, shower gel, soap and body moisturizer by the famous designer Pascal MORABITO. It is the ideal place to explore chateaux and vineyards of the Loire Valley. On the ground floor you find maps and information on tourist attractions in the area, ranging from the chateaux to restaurants, museums and wineries. "Le Manoir Les Minimes" has not restaurant, but this is not a problem. In the lobby there is a selection of menus of restaurants of the area that you can browse and the hotel staff will gladly make reservations for you in any of these nearby restaurants. Ours conclusions: It's romantic and delightful, an ideal location for a weekend, vacation or honeymoon. We would return with pleasure !!!!Thanks to Mr Patrice Longet and Mr Eric Deforges for a great moment.

    Christmas

    from

    My husband and I decided last year that we would drive to France for Christmas and spend some time in the Loire Valley.

    We booked into Manoir les Minimes for 5 nights and we had a superb time. The rooms were beautifully furnished and decorated, the owners were extremely helpful and attentive and we had the most fabulous time.

    Amboise is a lovely little village and although Manoir les Minimes does not have a restaurant, you only have to walk out the front door and you have lots to choose from.

    We even managed to go to Le Shaker (Cocktail Bar!!) across the river on many an occasion.

    All in all it was great. We have decided to return again this year and stay at Manoir les Minimes once again.

    Can't wait.

    Comfort and Class and a beautiful Briard

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the hotel in 2000. We were greated at the front gate by a friendly briard. The owner was pleasant, although not incredibly warm. We enjoyed our stay in the guest house, which was less expensive than the main house. It had a comfortable bed, nice bath, and plenty of little "extras." The only thing we were not happy about was the breakfast: it was typial french coffee and pastry. Not enough to keep a mouse alive and at 90 francs a little steep. Better bet, walk down to the open air market and buy fresh bread, grapes, and cheese.

Saw the areas he liked to sit and paint in; beautiful leafy glades set among giant pine trees.

I gave them a few tips and thought they are going to get lost at least a couple of times today. We left together from the hotel and we did not see them for the rest of the day.
