The rooms are like a B&B, nicely decorated and homey. There's no air conditioning but they have nice fans in each room. They offer a breakfast which consists of one glass of juice, coffee or tea, breads, jams and goat cheese. The goat cheese is...More

Thanks BARRY for this nice and exhaustive review. What can we say? You are right : Chinon IS the best base to tour the Loire Valley, whether you enjoy medieval fortresses or Renaissance castles, small churches or basilicas, gastronomy, wine, history, art or open spaces...

Wonderful romantic hotel, great breakfast, charming little bar, relaxing patio area. The staff, especially beautiful Francoise, was fantastic. I had lost my wallet in Chinon and the staff went out of their way to help us sort that out. Thanks for everything, Robert and Marianne.
