Lovely hotel in the Loire Valley. The village of Chinon is quiet, but centrally located. We parked 5 meters from the hotel, in the Rue Diderot on the back of the hotel, where there was free parking which was very convenient and easier than to drive to the front of the hotel. Beautiful XV century house. Excellent staff. We had a nice room with view of the garden/terrace. Small, but comfortable bathroom. Good beds. Everything was very clean. It was wonderful to have breakfast on the terrasse under the bananier. Home made confiture, good cofee, lovely pastry and bread.
We also had an aperitif on the terrasse before dinner, so we got to taste some Chinon wines recommended by the staff. We ended up buying 6 bottles that we brought home. The owner recommended a great seafood restaurant 4-5 minutes by foot from the hotel.
We will definitely come back, next time hopefully by bike.
