What can I say? Lovely Jardin room, great breakfasts, nothing is too much trouble - and ll this for 70 Euros a night?! Helene and Jean-Michel should really put their prices up!
They offer two rooms, both very spacious. Ours had an extra single room which was handy when I woke early and wanted to use my laptop for emails. Wifi reception was a bit variable due to thickness of the old walls, but perfectly OK.
Breakfasts started with bowl of fruit cocktail, then cereals, fresh bread/croissants/pain au chocolate etc. Juice etc. Tea/coffee making facilities in the room, which is quite unusual outside UK. The main thing was that nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Oh, and the location is just along the main street from the centre of Chinon so very local.
One slight caution is that the SatNav in the rented Peugeot took us down some very small strets into somewhere 100 feet or so away, so my advice is to look on a Google map rather than rely on your SatNav!
Couldn't be better.
