We stayed here after visiting Villandray which is a short distance away. The room was very nice , with air con, the meal in the restaurant was one of the best I have had in France. Parking is in the village , but not a problem. The only small niggle was we arrived just before 6pm and the staff did... More

We had read about the restaurant at Hotel Le XII de Luynes and wanted to try it and decided to stay at the hotel also. The hotel was purchased and renovated three years ago by the new owner Jean Pierre Pascal who greeted us when we checked in. The hotel is just 15 km from Tours and is a convenient... More

We stayed one night at the village of Luynes during our trip to visit the different chateaux in the Loire Valley area. It's about 12 km from city of Tours where we were taking the train back to Paris. The hotel was reasonably priced and is a fully renovated 17th century hotel. We got a room that is considered a...

I'm fearful that if I write about this hotel, too many people will find out about it....but it is so wonderful I feel I have to... The rooms are really quaint, modern, clean and comfortable. The staff is very helpful and multi-lingual. A real plus as my French is totally rusty. I don't usually sleep that well in hotels unless... More

I made a Euro Trip with my girlfriend in May / June to Paris and then down to Southern France for some wine and chateaux fun. While driving down, we came to Luynes. This is a diamond town, people are friendly, small and safe! Pulled over to Le XII as we had heard good things from our friends that stayed... More

My wife and I stayed for one night in August 2013, en route for Bordeaux. We wished we had stayed longer: the XII is great; the hotel we stayed down south was not (but that's a separate story). Since it was only intended as a one-nighter, I chose the hotel primarily because of the restaurant write up. The food and... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel de Luynes on our way from Paris to Saint-Emilion. The hotel was very comfortable and convenient for seeing the chateaux of the Loire valley.

This boutique style hotel located in the center of Luynes just 11km from Tours is a great way to fulfill your dream of living in a French village. Approaching just two years old, it offers very clean and upbeat rooms and is sandwiched (no puns intended ) between the village's two boulangeries so you see all the action as the... More

Charming village hotel, yet that is very close to Tours and many of the Loire Valley Chateaux. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable. We especially appreciated the air conditioning. Beautiful view of the Chateau of Luynes from their garden. The restaurant is an even bigger plus that makes this place an exceptional value and very comfortable to stay... More
