The Very Best in Chinon.
We loved our stay at Gargantua. We stayed in room Badebec, a lovely large room with a fantastic view of the Fortress of Chinon. The castle is lit up at night and we could lay in bed and look out at its magnificence. The Medieval town is wonderful to walk around in right out the door of the Hostellerie, with a beautiful cathedral next door. The castle was a short hike and we spent a very full day exploring its wonders. The food at the Gargantua's restaurant was great and the hostess/chef accommodated our dietary needs. Good wine selection too! The Breakfast Room was charming and well supplied with great pastries, breads, cheese, meat, fruit and tea/coffee. We loved everything about this place and highly recommend it. Be sure to take a long walk along the riverfront park in the evening. Lovely!

Hotel was very clean and breakfast was good. Staff was friendly. The hotel is unique and fits well with a stay in the medieval city. The room was very spacious but it would be better if the bath had a curtain so that a shower would be more comfortable and also if there were a rug in the main room it would be more cozy and quiet. Wifi does not work in the room but there is a community room on the first floor where it works well.

Chinon- A beautiful Loire Valley village.
We stayed 2 nights. The room was comfortable. The hotel was in town and within walking distance of all special sights. Nice quaint rooms and very good breakfast. The town has many wonderful restaurants.
