We were booked in to this hotel as part of our bicycle tour package with UTracks. It was easy to find and amazingly located in a thoroughfare that leads directly to the chateau, only a short walk away. There are shops - tourist gift shops, cafes etc opposite and adjacent. There was a garage to lock our bikes in. The... More

My mother and I spent two nights at the Hotel de Biencourt in mid-October. We had a charming room up a broad flight of stairs [with a good handrail, which Mom appreciated]; twin beds, good shower, nice linens and toiletries. The manager Patrick was extremely helpful, lugging Mom's bags up to our room, and provided good advice on nearby restaurants.... More

We stayed at the hotel for one night en route. The owners are very friendly and helpful, and have created a lovely ambience. The courtyard is a lovely facility, as is the ad lib tea and coffee-making facility, and fridge guests can use to chill their own wine. Our room in the old school was small, but well-appointed. We loved... More

Our stay in Azay le Rideau was a highlight of our trip. The village is charming, and in a beautiful setting. Biencourt is extremely comfortable -- our room was large and tastefully appointed, and we enjoyed the courtyard between the two buildings comprising the hotel. Also the service was friendly and very accommodating. We had a very relaxing lunch at... More

I loved, loved, loved this little hotel. Was previously a boys school in front and a girls school across the courtyard. Original wooden floors, large rooms and modern bathrooms. Great eating area downstairs. Situated on a lovely little street not even 1/2 block from the chateau. Cute little shops and eating places all within a few blocks. I would highly... More

This little gem should not be missed. Situated in the charming village of Azay-Le-Rideau, it's just a 5 minute walk to the lovely chateau (surrounded by its own moat). Right in the center of the village, yet quiet and private, this lovely hotel is in a former convent. Lovely courtyard, where you can relax or enjoy your breakfast. Rooms are... More

We have found many places to be bicycle friendly, but this was tops. A secure garage just across the street from the hotel. Most gracious owners. A very nice room with a great breakfast. Just down the street from the Chateau de Azay le Rideau.
