Le Cheval Rouge is a good hotel, and for the price range it is a very good hotel indeed. Externally attractive, it is right next door to Villandry Chateau and Park which is one of the must visit sights for a trip to the Loire. There is a small car park across the road which tends to fill up by early evening, but there is plenty of parking available close to the hotel in any case. The hotel car park is closed for security purposes overnight.
Staff are friendly and helpful. The room was a reasonable size and very clean. Only drawback for us was that it was a shower over the bath rather than a walk in shower. As there was no shower screen water tended to go a long way! Although our room fronted the main road the traffic did not disturb us.
There is a very good restaurant. A three course menu was available at E20 or the gourmet version at E30, or E36 if you want both a meat and a fish main dish. You need to book as first night the restaurant was full and they were turning people away. We had a bottle of Bredif Vouvray which was so good that we sought out the vineyard and bought some to take home. There is also a bar area.
Next time we are in the Loire I will be inclined to book this hotel for a few days as a base to explore the area.
