The three-night stay at Hotel Diderot in Chinon was the highlight of our three-week trip in France.
This is a beautiful small hotel in a lovely town. Laurent, his sisters, and their staff are all so caring.
We enjoyed our nice room, delicious breakfast, and all the restaurants that Laurent recommended!
On the morning we need to check out and catch the train, there was some kind of activities in town. We were not able to get a taxi, and one of the lovely ladies in the office drove her car to bring us to the train station! How cool/warm is that!!! (By the way, the train station is a easy 10 minutes walk from Hotel Diderot. With heavy luggages, you might need a taxi ride.)
Before this trip, We never heard of Chinon. Now thanks to everyone at Hotel Diderot, we promised ourselves that we will be back soon.

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.
