From personal experience I can say that La Bihourderie is a perfect location to tour the area south of Amboise. Naomi is a perfect host with excellent knowledge of what to see and when. Her advise on which chateaux to visit, the sequence and other places of interest was invaluable. The rooms share a lounge and kitchen area so guests have access to a patio & tea and coffee facilities which are excellent after a long day sightseeing. Breakfast is hearty and will keep you going for hours.
In conclusion I would say that if you prefer a tranquil rural setting as a base for touring the area, then La Bihourderie is about as close to perfection as you can get.
We stayed at La Bihourderie for 3 nights. Our room was on the ground floor and overlooked the countryside. It was very comfortable and clean, there was an exposed stone wall and beam which added character. There was a kitchen/lounge area where tea/coffee is provided, you are also able to make snacks etc. Outside is a terrace with a seating area, there was an amazing sunset each night. Breakfast consists of homemade jams, fresh bread, cakes, yogurts and cereal. Naomi was very welcoming. This Chambre d'hotes is in a very peaceful location, surrounded by farmland, the town of Loches is only 10 minutes away. Great stay, would highly recommend.
My girlfriend and I booked the family room, which was actually a 2 bedroom suite with a door leading directly out to the serene yard in the back. Every night we were treated to a spectacular sunset settling across the vast and lush farmland. Spacious and comfortable, not even a rooster could be heard through the thick stone walls. Naomi has given the farmhouse a modern touch, with a crisp white on stone treatment, but with a warmth befitting the old architecture. The farm is centrally located to so many chateaux, making it a Loire paradise. Breakfast included Naomi's home made jams, breads and fruit yogurt. I would definitely go back, given the chance.

If ever we are in the area we stay here. The rooms are excellent - tip top cleanliness and comfort, all modern with beautiful features. Breakfast is excellent. There is a lounge area where you can make tea and coffee and warm up any food - all fully equipped. Hosts are lovely people and full of information. It's only a few kilometres away from Loches itself so it's ideal - this really is one place to keep on your list.
