“The best place to stay in or near Chinon”
Reviewed 13 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Fantastic apartment in Chinon. Spotlessly clean with all necessary amenities for a great stay. The hosts were fabulous, communication was easy and the apartment was exactly as indicated.

If you are looking for an authentic 16thC apartment - this is it!!

“Great place to stay in Loire Valley”

The apartment was one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in more than a few. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook a few meals at home and coffee, sugar, olive oil and other basic things were supplied. The beds were very comfortable and it was quiet at night. We (3 older women) always felt safe in the apartment and enjoyed walking around the wonderful town. I was worried about not being able to park at the apartment and finding a space nearby but soon figured out that we could park in the lot by the lift to the castle for free overnight. I would recommend this place to anybody that doesn't have trouble with stairs. Oh yeah, did I say I love this place?

“Beautiful apartment oozing with Frech charm.”

This gorgeously french apartment is 14th century. The house itself is quirky in design and part of the medieval town of Chinon. The location is wonderfully central with the castle right behind the apartment. There are wine caves buried beneath the castle and the beautiful Vienne river all walking distance. The owners have thought of everything and it is very well appointed and truly beautiful - we did not want to leave! There is a winding staircase to the second floor where the apartment is and although no outside space - who needs it with the variety of bars and restuarants on the doorstep. We had a wonderful experience staying here.

La Maison Rouge is a perfect place, a spacious apartment with everything you need - a great location for exploring Chinon and for roaming all the beautiful small villages, wineries and castles of the Loire area. We had a wonderful week with our two girls (8 & 12 yrs), a great experience for all of us. The history of the area and the house itself made it even more special. Recommended for all who appreciate a dive into French/European history!

Very atmospheric - beautifully decorated in keeping with its heritage but with modern conveniences. Brilliant location near to everything but surprisingly quiet. Reliable administration and genuine warm welcome.
