This lovely bed and breakfast (2 rooms) is the restored home of the monk in charge of a 1400's monastery. Behind a door in a garden wall on a narrow street is a lovely garden and a very nicely restored historic home. After climbing the wide stairs up a turret, our room turned out to be a suite. The large... More

You might be suspicious when you see almost all the reviews are excellent but don't be. The location on a quiet street near many nice restaurants is excellent. The room we rented for three nights was very large, with a separate sitting area and sleeping area was very comfortable. The old Abbey has been lovingly restored and the hosts Jean... More

Logis Saint Mexme is one of the best places in which we have ever stayed. The garden room was beautiful and spacious, the breakfast fresh and excellent (warm croissants, homemade yogurt and jam), but it was the small touches which stood out. The room had a CD player with selection of CDs so on one afternoon we decided to return... More

We could write about how beautiful and large our room was, citing its large windows directly facing the ancient Saint Mexme Collegiate Church, its airy living room with comfortable places to relax, and its impressive selection of books about the region. We could also write about the comfy bed and the huge bathroom with its soaker tub. We could even... More

Our first visit to France. On recommendation of friends who have stayed here twice, we found our hosts to be warm and friendly. Our room with French windows overlooking the beautiful garden was like an oasis. Felt I should be sitting at the desk writing a romantic novel! Chinon and surrounds is perfect for bike riding and the wines are... More

We have visited this region and love the town of Chinon - this however was our first stay in the town and we were delighted with everything . Jean Michael and Helene are gracious hosts and the rooms are excellent , steeped in history and so conveniently located. Our breakfast were exceptional and the choice of eateries after a hard...

We stayed for three nights in a very comfortable, authentic French property. Our hosts, Jean-Michel and Helene, were delightful and very helpful with restaurants and places to visit in the surrounding area. Chinon is an excellent unspoilt centre for touring the Loire Valley, especially west of Tours if you are on a short break. The continental breakfast were superb! We... More

You can hardly get closer to the centre of this delightful town without staying in a hotel, and this decidedly was not a hotel. Indeed, after the host had served breakfast, he disappeared for the day and the place was ours. It is old, very old having once been part of the monastery opposite. We entered through an almost hidden... More

Sure, you can find cheaper B&B's. But considering the amount of service and quality my girlfriend and I was met with, it is a fantastic deal. We were there in July and sat in their wonderful little garden for breakfast. The owner was also very helpful about the local wines and sights. If you are considering this place, stop considering...

We stayed here 3 years ago and we were not disappointed this time either. Well set up good rooms, conveniently situated near e centre, of town. Unfortunately Helene was unwell while we were there but Jean Michel looked after us beautifully. Breakfast in the pretty garden is lovely. Great value
