Thanks to the large 2.5 meters high 'Tourangelle' window and a perfect East/West exposure light is everywhere as well as an enjoyable view of more historical buildings on the other side of the courtyard. The Camille bedroom is 15m2 (165 sq. Ft) much larger than French average offers either two large single bed or to your demand a king bed. The wall moldings and almost 11ft high ceilings will remind you the history of the building. You will certainly also enjoy the sofa to the right of the former fireplace for relaxing with one of the good books of the library. The Colette bedroom, 13m2 (140 sq. Ft), will seduce you with its wrought iron Queen size bed. and its wooden chest of drawers. Once again the large 'Tourangelle' window will allow you to enjoy the view and soft light of the morning. The kitchen has not been forgotten either, being in France it is a serious matter! Entirely redesigned and renovated in 2014 it now offers a functional and top line equipped space where you'll be able to prepare meals like any of the French Chefs. For your convenience you'll find a fridge with independent deep freezer, an induction cooktop, multi-function microwave, convection oven, dishwasher, ... Least but not last as environment matters to us, all appliances have been selected in the Green range. Finally the bathroom, also entirely redesigned and renovated in 2014 is now offering a bathtub with shower a well-lit big mirror above a large sink area. You'll probably also enjoy the towel heater in winter. At Les Cordeliers you'll find a home away from home as we designed it like if we were to live there, we also take a big pride in helping you enjoy your vacations as you should. More

We rented Les Cordeliers for about three months and were generally pleased. Very centrally located. The building is about 400 years old and of stone so is oddly well insulated against heat and cold. Our neighbors were mostly invisible. The owner was unfailingly nice and...More

About the neighbourhood
« Look up and watch … » is written on a sign of Blanqui street. The streets in Tours and more specifically the ones in the Medieval Tours (Vieux Tours) are a journey along the centuries. Depending on your strolls you will go from the XIXth century to as far as the medieval times, from large mansions to tiny ones, from brick to slates to lime stone (Tuffeau as it is called in the area). The apartment is located in the middle of the lively medieval district but tucked away far enough on a leafy square to save its quietness. Everything is a stone throw from the Carmes square making it very easy for you to find any shop or services you may need.
How to get there
By Road (5 minutes from the exit): Motorway A10 / E5: Paris / Bordeaux, Motorway A85 / E60: Angers / Vierzon By Train (5 minutes from the station): On the high speed train line (TGV) from Paris 0h50, From Paris De Gaule airport 1h20 By Air (15 minutes from the airport): With Ryanair from Dublin, London, Rome, Porto, etc.
