I feel bad and frustrated that I can't say more nice things about this place because after reading all the amazing reviews we had higher expectations. It was cheaper than many hotels we stayed in but we felt that the room we were given could have been better. The owners were friendly and helpful from the start - we only... More

We are sorry to learn your room didn’t meet your expectations. We are even more sorry to discover it here and not during you stay when we could have found solutions. We could have proposed you a fan and a bottle of water, an upper room if available (you booked the Cosy twin room for 72€, our smallest and less... More

My daughter and I stayed here overnight during a recent cycling tour of the Loire and were delighted to find such a welcoming, picturesque and stylish hotel set in delightful grounds on a quiet cobbled street in the heart of this pretty village.

We really loved being here. It was perfect for our velo holiday. The breakfast was so good as Patrick assured us all was home made and our taste buds exploded with joy. I cannot say enough for the owners as we had a small problem that we needed Patrick and his wife's help. They were courteous ,sympathetic and incredibly kind.... More

A fabulous cool and calm hotel beautifully decorated in a very stylish manor. Although no restaurant the there is a beautiful courtyard and a fridge and the owners are happy for people to bring in anything they would like to eat or drink. That said, there are many restaurants within a couple of minutes walk. Breakfast was fabulous and the... More

This hôtel is located 10km from the main motorway and in an old strret of Azay le rideau leading to the castle (200 meters from the hotel). It is a pedestrian street of the village, that makes it really quite. The castle is so close it worth having a look, it is a pretty nice one from Renaissance period surrounded... More

We stayed here during a cycle tour of the Loire. It is right in the centre of the town on a pedestrianized street and there is a lock-up shed for bikes. The hotel is lovely. Our room was spacious, bright and clean with a good bathroom, and opened out onto a flowery, peaceful courtyard with tables and chairs. We found... More

This hotel is such a revelation. I cannot fault it! The owners are really welcoming and all information about the hotel is very clear.

We stayed as a part of our cycling holiday. Very clean and relaxing environment. Breakfast was very good too. No A/C or fan in our room but it didn't matter as there was a good sized window that opened for fresh air(quite warm at the time of our visit) Staff were very helpful. Great location in a lovely little town.... More

Just a stopover for one night but wished we could have stayed longer. Elegantly and sympathetically refurbished small quiet hotel. Loved it. Clean rooms, nicely furnished and welcoming staff. One of the most comfortable beds ever. Will try and revisit.
