This small hotel, just steps away from the chateaux in Azay-le-Rideau, exceeded our expectations in so many ways. A former school, the location was central for getting to many chateaux In the western Loire valley. Our room was elegant and serene with beautiful taupe walls and linen curtains. The proprietors were friendly, warm and just plain nice. There was a... More

I stayed here during the early summer of 2013. The entire complex seems to have been a century old girls' school and there are hints of that all through the buildings, both in art and furniture, a very nice touch. My room had two single beds, comfortable but small. The bathroom was small though everything was in immaculate condition. Everything... More

The owners of this wonderful little hotel, really do go out of their way to help. When we arrived my husband had had an operation on his knee, he was using a mobility scooter. They couldn't help enough, even allowing him access to their own garage so he could park and charge it. Everything that could be done to make... More

This hotel is very special, given the price. It is - as far as the atmosphere is concerned - more comparable to a large B&B rather than a hotel. It is very well located in an very quiet street with no traffic next to the beautiful castle of Azay-le-Rideau. It is located in an ancient school from the Napoleon III... More

This is a nicely positioned hotel right in the centre of Azay-Le-Rideau and conveniently placed for the chateau and local restaurants. The only concern I had when booking the hotel was the car parking as you have to use the town car parks (free) and these are obviously not secure or in sight. It all worked out fine though and...

This hotel is super convenient. The hosts are absolutely terrific. The croissants and tea/coffee to welcome you are wonderful. It is located on a quiet cobblestone street. We had a lovely room. But a heads up, if you are tall, the upper rooms have slanted ceilings. Please watch your head. The pictures are accurate and representative. You may want to... More

We spent three nights at this gem. The hosts at Hotel de Biencourt were supurb. So helpful and kind, we had a very warm welcome and farewell from them. Our room was excellent in presentation and comfort. It was situated near the tranquil courtyard which was a terrific place to sit and enjoy a drink and snack. The location of... More

Lovely small hotel right in the centre of Azay-le-Rideau. Only 2 mins walk from the Chateau and close to all the bars and restaurants. Unfortunately we had a very small twin room, but that did not detract from the charm of the place. Breakfast is buffet style but also very good. Recommended!

Lovely hotel in the middle of Azay le Rideau. We had a spacious & clean family room with a well appointed bathroom. The staff were very friendly & courteous. There is a lovely sunny courtyard where you an relax & enjoy drinks provided by the hotel. The beautiful chateau is 2 mins walk away and restaurants, bars and shops are... More

We stayed here en route to Spain to break up our journey but it proved to be deserving of more attention than we could give it. It's just a short stroll from the chateau at Azey where we spent a lovely evening visit (fun and interactive for the kids) after a mediocre dinner in the town. The hotel suite (double... More
