We were here three days and I agree with all the positive reviews, this is a delightful place to stay in Amboise, the perfect home base for the Loire Valley. Katia could not have been nicer, speaks excellent English and has a delightful sense of humor. The location is excellent, parking convenient (considering it's located so close to the city...

A well located and quirky chambre d'hote, offering rooms in the fascinatingly old main house or a garden ennexe. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the bathroom huge. The beds need improving being very low and not particularly comfortable. The hosts were very welcoming, knew about the area and provided an excellent breakfast.

Iris de Marais is a charming B&B in an excellent location! Located just a block away from some of Amboise's best shops and restaurants, the location of this establishment is perfect for exploring Amboise's city center, and Amboise made a lovely home base for exploring the chateaus of the Loire Valley. My husband and I stayed in the red room...

This is a lovely place to stay if you are looking for somewhere as a home base for Chambord, Chenonceau, Chinon, and of course the town and chateau of Amboise. The property is as charming as could be, and Katia is a wonderful host. The room and bed were clean and comfortable and breakfast was delicious. The property is within...

Wonderful hosts, simple and clean room (a bit warm during our stay; no AC, but traffic noise prevents open windows). Historic house. Comfortable beds. No wifi in the room, though it was available in a sitting area just outside the room. Excellent breakfast includes fresh fruit. Easy walk to town. Parking on the street was not difficult and a free...

This was my favorite B&B in France. The hostess was personable and humorous, although she has a few rules which you need to heed. Breakfast was spectacular, including the gluten/dairy free crepes. Location is in the middle of town, and our favorite restaurant (La Reserve) is only two blocks away. The room was roomy and clean. The host is an...

We stayed for two nights. We had our own annex which was private with two very comfortable single beds. The room was spacious and the garden which was just outside our front door was quiet and tranquil. Breakfast is good with a choice of jams, cheese/ham, yogurt and fresh bread/brioche from the local bakery. As everyone else has said Katia...

Katia certainly outdoes herself in being helpful and welcoming. The yellow room is huge, as is the bathroom and toilet area. The entire house is spotlessly clean, the bed very comfortable, breakfast lovely and pretty much served at our convenience in Katia's dining room. We were welcome to use the garden as well, where we enjoyed a picnic dinner one...

Iris des Marais was a lovely place to stay for the two nights we were in Amboise. The room was large and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious, but most of all, Katia and Vianney were extremely nice and welcoming hosts. Go check out Vianney's art studio, he makes all kinds of cool artwork out of wine wrappers. It was...

We have just spent two wonderful nights in the lovely apartment/little house which is part of Le Iris De Marais. What can I say really- everything was just perfect - from the lovely lounge chairs, to the fresh towels, comfortable beds, large spaces, great breakfast, generous hosts and all this within walking distance of everything and at a reasonable price....
