they said about us

  " Un petit coin de paradis au cœur du vieil Amboise. Un havre de paix dans la verdure. 

Une chambre reposante. Tons clairs et chaleureux. Une literie et une salle de bains impeccables. 

Une maison pleine de charme, remplie de livres et de très beaux objets. 

Un petit déjeuner exceptionnel. 

Et surtout des hôtes de qualité , qui ont un généreux sens de l hospitalité et de l accueil.

Et cerise sur le gâteau....un délicieux accent italien. "

  "We enjoyed 3 nights at La Dilecta and it was incredible! Our room was enormous, private, comfortable and sparklingly clean. The bathroom was very modern and possibly the nicest we had in Europe (in many trips).

The breakfast featured about a dozen delicious options like high quality yogurt, local cheeses, tasty breads, different fruit, special honey and a freshly made bakery item that changed daily. It was so fantastic and a great way to start our day!

You will be charmed by the hosts who were so helpful and knowledgeable about the area. It's an amazing choice for your stay! "

  " Nous avons passé 3 superbes jours dans cette maison d'hôtes. La maison vaut une visite à elle-seule, toutes les pièces sont décorées avec soin. On sent indéniablement un goût pour l'Art et les belles choses, tout en simplicité. La lumière naturelle inondait toute les pièces de la maison, pour notre plus grand plaisir. Mais le meilleur de notre séjour reste nos échanges avec nos adorables hôtes italiens et la compagnie de leur chat Romeo :) Tout fût parfait, de l'accueil jusqu'aux petits déjeuners pleins de délicieuses surprises faites maison (les patisseries de Barbara sont justes miam miam miam) ! The place to be si vous comptez visiter Amboise / ses environs et vous sentir comme à la maison. "

 " When I reflect on our recent trip to France and make my list of the best places, experiences, and people, La Dilecta and its charming hosts, Barbara and Andrea, are at the top. It's no surprise that every review here is a five. We would, and probably will, return to Amboise one day just to visit them and enjoy their hospitality. The house opens onto a lovely enclosed courtyard that is an oasis to return to after a day of chateau hopping. Our large and airy room and bathroom were lovely and elegant. The healthy breakfast, served with care each morning, is something to look forward to. And their advice on how to enjoy the Loire Valley was truly helpful. We have traveled extensively for the past 8 years, and our stay at La Dilecta is clearly one of the best experiences we have had
