We have been lucky enough to travel from North to South in France for about 30 years, between 2 to 4 times each year, usually having one night’s stop each way, and trying all sorts of hotels. This year, because of an interest in the history, we changed our route slightly and aimed to stay in Fontevraud. Fortunately, we chose La Croix Blanche. This hotel is in an excellent position and we were delighted with the lovely interior and surroundings. There are all facilities anyone could need, including a pool, and everything is beautifully cared for. From the moment we arrived every member of staff was charming and helpful. And then there was the food. This was delightful; all courses were created from seasonal ingredients and were absolutely delicious; it was superb and the restaurant was an attractive and relaxing place to be. The experience at this hotel was one of the highlights of our trip and we will certainly make a point to use the “new” route south and La Croix Blanche in Fontevraud again.
