Had a very pleasant stay at the Hotel de France. Car parking was essential and efficient. Staff were attentive and spoke English as and when needed. Our room was at the front of the hotel overlooking the square and as the weather was hot it was good to have a window open rather than the A/C running constantly. This exposed the one problem because the road cleaning operation started very early each morning and was extremely noisy. Otherwise a very enjoyable stay.

Arrived after a long journey from Le Puy en Velay. We have stayed in Chinon several times before so had no trouble finding the hotel. Booked in straight away (late afternoon) and, after settling in, had a drink at the bar opposite the chateau, one of our favourite views in France.

Lovely stay and excellent cheap food from attached restaurant as well. Loads of room with seperate bath and shower in bathroom. All accessed via a stone spiral staircase set in a turreted tower. Simply wonderful stay and stopover giving us time to walk the old town and visit the castle on the hill.
We were pleasantly surprised at how careful the staff were to accommodate our requirements; the room we were allocated was great for us and the hotel was in a very good location. Breakfast was buffet style but a nice choice and very good choice of teas!
Lying on the bank of the river Vienne, Chinon is a verdant area most recognized by the dramatic fortress which dominates the landscape. Castle Rivau is another hotspot, attracting visitors due to its classic appearance and quaint, fairy tale-inspired gardens. Vineyards scale the plains of Indre-et-Loire and Chinon is known for its dense, fruity wines.
