While cycling in France we stay one night at Ami Chenin. The large room with fireplace was very comfortable. Our hosts were very helpful with locating restaurants and even had a discount coupon for us to visit a local wine cave. Which we were not aware was in the area ... made the stop and were glad we did!! Would... More

The Ami Chenin is certainly out of the way, but that's why I chose it. We had a little difficulty finding it, and were nervous on the steep hillside, but it is where people live, and is entirely manageable. My only caution is to look for the sign that is at the bottom of the hill, and take your time.... More

For the Americans: We drove around for two hours in the dark and could not find this B&B. We had to call and be picked up to follow to the B&B. I was so exhausted and I missed out on dinner completely that night in France! They do not lock the front doors, they do not have locks on your... More

We made a stopover in Saumur for one night only, but when we saw the place, we regretted we hadnt planned to stay longer. The rooms are incredibly romantic, yet very comfortable with modern facilities. The hosts made us very warm welcome although we arrived pretty late in the evening, and later on helped us to plan our sightseeing for... More

We stayed for 2 nights and accepted the home cooked dinner for1 of them. But1st one had to get there and the access road is rather difficult, so don't try it if you have a large car! It was stressful parking in the rather narrow spot after a narrow steep short road. The location was otherwise peaceful, the large room... More

I booked this through TripAdvisor on grounds of location, price and charm and I was not disappointed (and neither was my wife) when we stayed earlier this year. France and Xavier's home is truly beautiful and they are wonderful hosts who were patient as I struggled with my French and made us feel at home. We enjoyed drinks outdoors with... More

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely "bed & breakfast," located in the Loire Valley, immensely. The owners, France and Xavier, are welcoming, charming -- the perfect hosts. The old stone house (complete with its own wine cave) is beautifully restored and decorated. We took advantage of the fact that a table d'hotes is offered, which turned out to be... More

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this beautiful home. And then I saw the room - it was magnificent, very large and comfortable. Actually it was more a suite than room - a family of 4 could stay there and still have room to move around. I have a love for homes 3-5 hundred years old and this... More

A big thank you to the last reviewer. We just came back from an all too brief stay at Ami Chenin. Though we didn't have the room they spoke of, our room was also lovely. The location was great. The surroundings beautiful. Our hosts couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. We also had a delicious dinner dinner there, which... More

Excellent Bed and Breakfast, well located if you are planning to vist the Loire region. What a pleasant surprise! 400 year old house, super big room, we got the room Aunis with the Baldaquin bed, we were impressed. Private entrance to our room, big superb bathroom, newly renovated. Super comfortable, very romantic. Great breakfast, friendly owner. Our favorite!
