We spent there only one night: the room offered few facilities but was clean and comfortable. The hotel is in the walking distance from them castle and probably is the best opportunity for castle goers. Officially free WiFi but only in the restaurant

The service here was exceptional. What really makes this place is the service offered by Jannick. A lady that goes out of her way to make your stay wonderful. We highly recommend both the hotel and the restaurant, the friendly staff were terrific. There is also lots to see in the local area.

We chose this hotel so that we could spend the afternoon at Villandry and not need to keep an eye on the clock. As it happened the rain fell solidly from lunchtime onwards so we were decided to check in earlier than planned. The room was OK, perhaps in need of some improvements and rather small, but the beds were... More

Located right next to the Chateau. However, despite booking in advance we were told on arrival that we could not check in for another 2.5 hours. Waiter was pretty rude too. Room was adequate, but not up to the standard that you can find elsewhere in the Loire. Wifi connection is not available on all rooms. Disappointing.

Its first attraction is its proximity to the chateau and gardens. That is why we booked it. What we found was a revelation: a very comfortable hotel with a great restaurant and staff who exuded care for their clients: would you like to eat inside or out? it may rain but are you content stay out here? would you like...

This hotel was RIGHT next door to Villandry Chateau. We went to the chateau during the day and then back at night for the fireworks so we wanted to stay within walking distance. It was a pleasant change from some of the big cities. The only drawback was that the 2 rooms that we had were not right next to... More

This hotel is ideally situated to explore the Loire Valley and it's magnificent sights. Starting with the Villandry Chateau and Gardens which has its front gate less than 100 metres from the door of the Hotel. Staff at the hotel are very accommodating and the language barrier was not too great. The restaurant serves fabulous meals and the variety of... More

Le Cheval Rouge is a good hotel, and for the price range it is a very good hotel indeed. Externally attractive, it is right next door to Villandry Chateau and Park which is one of the must visit sights for a trip to the Loire. There is a small car park across the road which tends to fill up by... More

Villandry le Cheval Rouge is right up against the Chateau Villandry and within a 1/4 mile of the autobahn. Rooms are large and breakfast great. Lots of parking. On july 3rd Chateau Villandry had a large fireworks show.

We stayed 2 nights while visiting the area. We enjoyed our stay. Nice breakfast and dinner. Car parking across the street as well as some walking/biking trails and the office of tourism. So it was a nice place to stay to explore the area. The room was clean. Villandry castle next door to visit.
