A vaguely strange hotel set above the small village of Gennes. 1970s brutalist concrete building and slightly jaded interior. The bedroom clean and comfortable, with a nice bathroom with both shower and bath. There is an outdoor pool but we did not use it as it was raining. Breakfast (9€) was a little minimalist for the price. Bikes were parked... More

Phillipe Dubosq and his team offer the warmest of welcomes at this hilltop family hotel overlooking the Loire and the charming town of Gennes. The rooms are clean and comfortable; the restaurant offers a reasonably priced evening meal (although there are other bistro type eateries within walking distance). We enjoyed the well stocked buffet breakfast on the terrace with views... More

We were travelling to Chinon for a week's stay at a Gite and booked into La Longue Vue over the internet for 1 night and on arrival, found that the room was small and had no view which was disappointing as we later had drinks on the terrace which faces west and had a great view over Gennes and a...

The owners are very friendly and accommodating. They gave us great tips on where to bike and good restaurant recommendations. The one dinner we had was also good. However, the facility is dated, the rooms small with no ventilation, the bathroom moldy, the yard clutter with broken toys. They need to invest in the infrastructure. Would not recommend unless you... More

We stayed at La Longue Vue during our cycling tour through the Loire Valley. We really enjoyed our stay here, the facilities were great, the food was excellent and the couple running the hotel were very friendly and really made us welcome.

Since we were on bikes that was a bit of a challenge at the end of a long hot day. The bike storage was great. Sit on the terrace and have a cold beer at the end of a long day in the saddle. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The owners were extremely nice and helpful. And best of... More

We were staying in the area on a trip through France and this restaurant was recommended to us (we didn't stay here) by our host. The menu was restricted to the "Menu" as it was definitely out of season (there was only one guest staying at La Longue Vue and we were the only people staying at the Domain de... More

We enjoyed our stay here very much indeed. The owners are relatively new to the hotel and are engaged in updating it a little at a time, hence our room was a little bit on the tired side. This was more than made up for by the friendliness of Philipe and his wife. We enjoyed excellent value on meals and... More

We stayed here for a week while on a cycling holiday. The rooms were very clean and comfortable - recently decorated, I think - and the bathroom relatively large and well-equipped. We much appreciated the non-stop heating and hot water in a chilly Spring. Breakfasts had everything we wanted for a day in the saddle. Facilities for storing the tandem... More

Arrived after a long day in the saddle (bike) to a friendly welcome, a clean room, a shower, a cold blonde(,) beer and a swim in the good-sized pool. What more could you ask for? We'd all booked dinner and the menu was imaginative and the food was great. Below the dining room and opening onto the terrace is a... More
