The Hôtel Diderot ranks among the nicest places I ever have stayed. "Clean and comfortable" could describe almost any U.S. chain hotel, but Diderot is far better. The owners/managers are incredibly nice and helpful, the setting is convenient and access to it by car or foot is easy, and breakfast in the common room (the weather was cool while we were there, and an open fire was burning in the fireplace) was excellent. My only regret is that we did not allocate more of our time in France for a longer stay in Chinon and at Hôtel Diderot. We hope to return!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ideally situated in the heart of old Chinon, nestled in the quiet and historic neighborhood of the Saint Mexme collegiate church, Hotel Diderot welcomes you into a 15th century limestone mansion, restructured in the 17th and 19th centuries. Hotel Diderot is famous for its marvelous breakfasts, offering a dizzying selection of homemade jams, delicious French breads, brioche and croissants, locally produced fresh goat cheese, honey and fruit juice. Close to the fireplace in autumn, or on the shaded terrace as soon as the warm weather arrives, the first meal of the day must be as unforgettable as the night that preceded it. Gluten-free breakfast available on request. Here you will find peace and tranquility ; you will experience the warm hospitality of a " tourangelle " residence, in the land of Renaissance writer Francois Rabelais, amidst the splendid vineyards of the Val de Loire, the landscape dotted with magnificent castles and unique gardens. ... more less
