Chinon and the Châteaux of the Loire Valley

Our hotel is the perfect place to begin your holiday

 

Located at the gates of the medieval citadel, our hotel is the ideal place from which to discover Chinon. One of France’s “Villes d’Art et d’Histoire” and listed as a UNESCO heritage site, enjoy its royal fortress, its charming streets, and its quaysides by the River Vienne. Chinon is also famous for its fine wines, its history (from the Plantagenets to Joan of Arc), not to mention its literature with Renaissance writer François Rabelais who called the town his home. The city is also the gateway to the Loire Valley’s fairytale castles, with the likes of Azay-le-Rideau, Ussé, Langeais, Loches, Rivau and Villandry nearby.

 

Nature lovers won’t be disappointed either. The Chinon region in the heart of the Natural Regional Park of Loire-Anjou-Touraine is ideal for walking. With the royal Loire and majestic Vienne rivers running through it, it offers a multitude of trails for walking and cycling across well-kept countryside and state-owned forest. If you’re a lover of fine wines, you can also take the Route des Vins of the Loire Valley, as well as the many tourist circuits on offer.

A visit to sites in a London-style black cab taxi is available on reservation.
