Fontevraud-l'Abbaye: Has it improved?

Has anyone stayed in the hotel at the Fontevraud-l'Abbaye recently? We're travelling to France in September and planned to stay 2 nights there until reading the poor reviews.... The reviews are from last year and earlier though. Can anyone who's been there recently report back please? Thanks!

Hi there,

I noticed your question when writing a review for la samsonelle gite in fontevraud. I can certainly say if your looking for a tranquil getaway with the essentials on your doorstep it is fine. Don't expect loads of shops, bars and restaurants as there are only a handful of each. If your going out every day exploring it is a perfect nightly retreat to drink the wine you have bought and relax. If you want more to do from your front door but still maintain the mediavel charm I would reccommend chinon. All the best of luck with your holiday.

Thank you very much! That actually sounds just fine for us. After spending a week in Paris, it'll be nice to enjoy a slower pace.

Cheers!
