Good value for the area
Very historic building with reasonable parking, but limited conveniences such a spirial stairs and no elevator. This was a good value in Chinon which has become a congested tourist destination.

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!
