Stayed for three nights in late July. Owned and operated by three siblings, this hotel is deserving of its high ratings. Staff is personable, helpful, and knowledgable. Breakfast is reasonably priced and features Laurant's homemade jams, about 15 to choose from by my count. They charge for parking but there is a free lot down the street behind the medical laboratory. The hotel is an 18th century manor house with period furniture to match. Modern bathrooms. No elevator so be prepared to carry your bags up and down unless you have a ground floor room. I would definitely stay here again.
- 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
