The rooms are like a B&B, nicely decorated and homey. There's no air conditioning but they have nice fans in each room. They offer a breakfast which consists of one glass of juice, coffee or tea, breads, jams and goat cheese. The goat cheese is...More

Thanks BARRY for this nice and exhaustive review. What can we say? You are right : Chinon IS the best base to tour the Loire Valley, whether you enjoy medieval fortresses or Renaissance castles, small churches or basilicas, gastronomy, wine, history, art or open spaces...

We stayed at the Diderot for two nights. They didn't give us the accommodation we had asked for but were able to change it. The room had a bright and modern design but was small. If you like 250 varieties of jam, then breakfasts may...More
