My husband and I were on our honeymoon and took the recommendation from Rick Steve's travel book to stay at Hotel Diderot in Chinon. Boy, was he right! This place is incredibly charming, with cheerful staff, nicely renovated rooms and a killer breakfast including homemade jams that would make your grandmother jealous. We originally planned one night in Chinon, but one night wasn't enough! Hotel Diderot was so charming, and Chinon was so special we decided to forgo our hotel reservation at another city in the Loire and stay on at Hotel Diderot. Definitely a winner. Can't wait to go back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ideally situated in the heart of old Chinon, nestled in the quiet and historic neighborhood of the Saint Mexme collegiate church, Hotel Diderot welcomes you into a 15th century limestone mansion, restructured in the 17th and 19th centuries. Hotel Diderot is famous for its marvelous breakfasts, offering a dizzying selection of homemade jams, delicious French breads, brioche and croissants, locally produced fresh goat cheese, honey and fruit juice. Close to the fireplace in autumn, or on the shaded terrace as soon as the warm weather arrives, the first meal of the day must be as unforgettable as the night that preceded it. Gluten-free breakfast available on request. Here you will find peace and tranquility ; you will experience the warm hospitality of a " tourangelle " residence, in the land of Renaissance writer Francois Rabelais, amidst the splendid vineyards of the Val de Loire, the landscape dotted with magnificent castles and unique gardens. ... more less
