We had only a few days in France and wanted to spend them in small towns and villages. We stayed at one of the castles, but for one night we wanted to stay in Luynes. Our room was very nice (no 5), bathroom had shower and jacuzzi. We had dinner at the restaurant and it was excellent and they surprised me with a birthday cake. Breakfast was good too (nice bread and mini pain au chocolat, cereals, ham, cheese, hard boiled eggs...coffee was good too. But the best part was the friendliness of the owners and the staff. We arrived around 15h and it says on the door that they open after 18h, we called and in the matter of minutes we were let in. Behind the hotel there is a terrace with a lovely view of the Luynes castle, which is an easy walk away. It costs 9.5EUR and is quite refreshing from the famous chateauxs from the region as it is a bit quieter and the family still lives there. There is also free and fast wi-fi and a boulangerie across the road. I would definitely like to come come back.
