The Châteaux of the Loire Valley

Beauty and majesty so close to the hotel

Located at the heart of the Loire Valley, Chinon is your gateway to the châteaux of the Loire. Less than 15 minutes by car from our hotel, the Château du Rivau with its royal stables and enchanting gardens offers an escape full of charm amid magnificent countryside. Towards the Loire and only 20 minutes from the hotel is the Château d’Ussé, nicknamed “Sleeping Beauty Castle” due to it having inspired author Charles Perrault when writing his version of the famous fairy tale. No thick thorns surround it, though - rather remarkable French-style gardens planned by landscape architect André Le Nôtre. A bit further afield, the Château d’Azay-le-Rideau is the perfect example of Renaissance architecture. Be enchanted by its carved stone façades reflecting in the water and find peace and calm in its vast English-style garden.

Majestically dominating the Loire Valley, the Château de Langeais is 30 minutes from the hotel. Part fortress, part princely residence, it houses multiple treasures, from sumptuous drapes to sculpted furniture and ornaments recalling the glory days of the aristocracy. 10 minutes from Langeais, the Château de Villandry was the last of the great châteaux to have been built in the Loire Valley during the Renaissance. Its six gardens, including the famous ornamental kitchen garden, are open every day of the year.
