We were slightly worried by the approach to the hotel but it turned out to be a most comfortable stay. The owners are welcoming, friendly and helpful. It was good to be able to park our car so close to the hotel. Our rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean. The only thing wrong was the awful weather!!

This place is excellent value. Basic room but comfortable and clean. Two standout features: 1. Fantastic breakfast. 2. Fantastic hosts, nothing is too much trouble. If all independents were like this place, there wouldn't be any chains.

BUT do not rely on Trip Advisor map. The pin on the map is within 500m of the hotel but on the wrong side of the highway, and not at the address. We were strugging with a new sat-nav and were unable to enter the street address. Plain de Vaux 2 is to west of highway. The pin in Trip... More

Brilliant for exploring the area. Out of town but very car friendly. Well received. Breakfast good. Room clean.. Only downside was the door locks which have traditional keys and make things a bit noisy when guests return to their rooms. The "cottage garden" with so many flowers is great and the location particularly on a Sunday was so quiet. When... More

We drove into Chinon fully expecting to find a room in the centre but the nice chap at the St Jacques - stayed there before - said there was only one room left in Chinon - in the Sans Souci over the other side of town. We hightailed it over there and were slightly worried at first sight as it... More

Conveniently (for us) located on the D road through Chinon. Do not be put off by it's odd location in an industrial estate - it is surrounded by flowers. And don't miss... More

Friendly owners, who are extremely hospitable. Everything was perfect, rooms, bathrooms and breakfast. Spotlessly clean throughout. Good range at breakfast, in a bright breakfast room. Small patio to the side for relaxing. Fast, free WiFi. Very secure parking, gates locked at 22:00, guests open with room key. It is outside of the town, but we will definitely return and have...

The owners of the Sans Souci hotel should be justly proud of their excellent management of this hotel. They have a knack of seeing to everything professionally and calmly. It's very appreciated when the welcome is polite and you really get an impression that you are in helpful hands. The situation is quiet even though the hotel is by a... More
