“Homesick for Étape de Charme Les Cordeliers!”
Reviewed 30 January 2017 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

One year ago this month we arrived in Tours for a two-month stay. We are so glad that Étape de Charme Les Cordeliers was our home base! Our plan was to study at Institut de Touraine for two months and become completely fluent in French. Although we did not exactly reach our language goal, we fell in love with our residence, the local shopkeepers, and the friends we made at Saint Gatien. Even through the cold and wet of a winter in France, we loved tromping up and down the streets of this beautiful city, buying groceries, becoming regulars at the bakery at the end of rue des Cordeliers and weathering the infamous "déchéance de nationalité" debates. Yes, we are homesick for our romantic nest in Tours!

“comfortable accommodations in a pleasant if lively part of town”
Reviewed 29 October 2015 for a stay in July 2015

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 responsive. The kitchen is on the small side but quite functional. The apartment has only one bathroom, which isn't great but was a known quantity going in. The apartment is just around the corner from Rue Colbert, which is a convenient in terms of access to restaurants, little bars, and other establishments, but can make for a bit of noise in the wee hours, especially when the university students are out in full force. The common areas of the building (exterior courtyard, internal stairwell) could use some renovation, although this is probably hard to get permitted in this historical district of Tours. Very limited closet space.

“Lovely Apartment, Great Location”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed at this apartment for 5 nights in April 2015. The location is great. A bakery 50 metres away, plenty of very good restaurants, starting 50 metres away, a supermarket 70 metres away. The building is old, typical of the area but the apartment has been well refurbished. It is walking distance to the centre of town and the railway station. We enjoyed going to the bakery each morning to get fresh French bread for breakfast.

Access to the apartment (it is on the first floor) is via a narrow wooden circular staircase. One needs to be careful especially older like us, but the apartment is worth it. We liked the washing machine (no dryer but a big airer and plenty of space) and the dishwasher.

Great place to experience living a bit like the locals. We found the communication regarding meeting the owners housekeeper at the site to let us in and provide the keys to be a little confusing. We thought we would be met there at a specified time, but this did not occur and fortunately we were able to call the owners housekeeper. You need to clarify this communication.

The security deposit was returned to us promptly.

“Great location”
Reviewed 8 January 2015 for a stay in September 2014

Wonderful location. The apartment had all we needed, spacious , well maintained. The host who greeted us was very helpful. We were pleased with our choice, close to everything. We rented a car for our chateau touring, and found a easy parking lot a couple min walk. Loved the town of Tours. So many great restaurants and shopping. We will return.
