It is clear that this family loves their business and their hotel. We loved being there for three nights in June. Our room was charmingly put together, the bathroom sparkling clean, and the view from our window over the courtyard was so Juliet! The furniture in Room 24 was well made, substantial and beautiful. The desk was particularly handy. The shower was large with two great showerheads. The gardens were simply lovely and a shot from our window sent on Facebook got many positive responses. We ate all our breakfasts there, yummm. Free parking 100 yards away, an easy walk to restaurants in Chinon, particularly good base for Villandry (don't miss THOSE gardens!). One of my best memories was my good bye conversation with Laurent talking France and United States. This two star is absolutely the best bargain in the Loire Valley. Thank you so much for your warm hospitality and keep jamming!
