We enjoyed our stay at Claire apartment. It was an interesting little place with a lot of character. The location was great, the apartment was cool at night (perfect for hot French summers). Claire was also very communicative and helpful.

Claire really made sure about our arrival and gave us all the information we needed to be confident about finding the address. She and her family were very helpful throughout our stay and the lift to the station when we left was a great start to our day.

The Location of this lovely Studio is extremely nice, at 2 minute’s walking distance, it has super markets, bakeries, restaurants, laundry, cash ATM machine, everything one could need, just around the corner. The space is very central. Check in and check out flexibility was also useful. Thank You.

My husband and I had planned to stay here for a few days while in Tours. Before our stay, Claire did an excellent job of communicating with us about the accommodations and the area. She even offered to help us get a rental car. A few weeks before our reservation was to start, we learned that Claire was going to be out of town during our stay and that a neighbor would be doing the check-in. When we arrived by train from Paris and went to pick up our rental at the place Claire had helped us get a reservation, we found they were on a two hour lunch break and we had to take a taxi to the property. Claire instructed us to call her neighbor when we arrived and that she would be available for check-in. We called her multiple times but she didn't answer. We then went to her home as Claire had instructed. She wasn't home. 30 minutes later, Claire's friend arrived and let us into the apartment. Claire had said there would be Wi-Fi at the apartment, so after we checked in, we tried to get connected so we could figure out the details of our stay in Tours. Unfortunately, we could only get the Wi-Fi to work if we stood in a very specific area of the apartment, and even then it was very weak and unreliable. There was also no cell service in the apartment. We contacted Claire to let her know the Wi-Fi was not working. Her advice to us was to leave the apartment and get free Wi-Fi at a nearby café. We attempted to resolve the issue with her, but eventually decided it was not going to work for us and contacted Claire to alter the reservation to the one night. We then spent the rest of our stay in a hotel. We told Claire where we had left the key, and left. We then went to pick up the rental car Claire had helped us reserve, only to find that the reservation had been made at the wrong train station. We had to get on a train to take us to the other station to get our car. The next day we were contacted by Airbnb to tell us that Claire had put a hold on our security deposit because of "missing keys." We contacted Airbnb to let them know that we left the key at the apartment and had already notified Claire of this. Airbnb told us a few days later that we were getting our deposit back. Since initially posting this review, Claire has also left a very negative review on my profile that contains false information and has sent me a strongly-worded private message. What a headache this has turned out to be!

Response from Claire:
Yes, sorry for the headache, at least Jenny and I had this in common ! as it is my word , plus my friend's (the one who welcomed Jenny and offered to get her some touristic information from the tourism office & km away but jenny left without telling her though she lives next door !)against Jenny's, I am not going to waste more time answering this new answer again ... But jenny DOES seem to have forgotten how things went ! and that she left without waiting for anyone to get hold of the ONLY key available at the moment in Tours, which meant we had to wait a few days ( we were away, and so the key was inside the flat !)before making sure the flat had not been damaged, that's why I asked Airbnb to keep the deposit ... So, yes, I was angry!

Amoureuse des beaux paysages, grande voyageuse, aimant découvrir de nouvelles cultures et rencontrer de nouvelles personnes...
Ayant des maisons secondaires dans de jolis coins de France, région Midi-Pyrénées ( département de l'Aveyron, 12) et région Bretagne ( département des Côtes d'armor, 22) nous les mettons également à votre disposition. De même, habitant Tours nous-mêmes, nous pouvons vous faire découvrir cette belle région qu'est la Touraine, ses célèbres châteaux mais aussi plein d'autres lieux moins connus, lorsque vous séjournez près de chez nous dans un de nos 2 appartements accueillants à la même adresse, à deux pas du centre ville, tout en étant au calme sur les bords de Loire !
Enseignante en anglais mais ayant allégé mes activités professionnelles, je serai ravie de discuter avec vous dans cette langue ! ou en espagnol, que j'essaie d'apprendre !
