La Maison Jules
Ranked #1 of 21 Tours B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 23, 2014

This B&B is excellent . Centrally located in an old house beautifully and elegantly re-furbished but still retaining its character . The rooms are very spacious as are the bathrooms which are also very well appointed . All the decor is in a modern style .
The owner is extremely friendly , fluent in English and very helpful if you need restaurant suggestions or places to visit . Parking outside the property was not too difficult for us but I guess that is not always the case ; however there is a large underground car park very close by .
All the major sites of Tours are within easy walking distance

Room Tip: Try for a room overlooking the courtyard as it will be quieter

We stayed two nights at la Maison Jules. It was beautifully decorated, warm and cosy, and Alexandra was a great host - a perfect place to stay for a romantic weekend in the middle of winter! Breakfast was wonderful with really high quality juice, yoghurts, croissants etc. as well as eggs. We will definitely go again.

We have stayed at La Maison Jules while touring Loire valley with our 3 daughters aged 6,4 and 3. I'm a pretty tough judge of the decor and I have to say that the house was beautifully renovated by Alexandra. Every room had the most elegant wallpaper and furniture was well chosen to match the style of the house. I even suggested that she should try to feature her house in one of the decor magazines. We booked two adjacent rooms. Alex has initially intended a simpler room for the girls, but because the bed was larger in the master suite, we have switched. The little ones ended up with some luxury accommodations featuring duravit bathtub and appliances. I should have started with mentioning the fact that we have arrived 12 hours later than originally anticipated in the middle of the night, as our flight had to make an emergency landing in Bruxelles instead of Paris. Alex was waiting for us and settled us in in the middle of the night. She greeted us the next morning with a delicious breakfast and being a mother herself gave us some great suggestions on where to go with the kids. The house was conveniently located to laundry and dry leaning as well as shopping which allowed us to pick up some warm clothing we appreciated during the rest of the trip. We have stayed 3 nights and have blissfully continued our adventures. It wasn't until several days from then that we have discovered that we have left our passports at la maison! Alex who have been trying to reach us, mailed the passports right away and saved us from some major travel trouble. Thank you and best of luck with your business!

Location is perfect close to so many amenities including the train station. Quality accommodation, that is extremely private for a B&B. Alex is a wonderful host who can provide good advice on sites to see and eateries. Hiring bikes and riding to chateaux is a must for those who have some time on their hands and enjoy medium exercise. Highly recommended B&B

My friend and I booked 2 rooms in this wonderful B&B for three nights and it was perfection.

This beautiful home is a 3 minute walk from the train station and also 3 minutes from the tourist office which is great for easy access to do day tours of the Loire Valley if you don't have a car.
Both our rooms were divine, my friend stayed in a large more expensive room however I felt my room was every bit as lovely just smaller. Beautifully furnished with fabulous bathrooms and spotlessly clean.
Alexandra was a delight, providing a good breakfast and kindly made reservations at her favourite restaurants for us.
I would highly recommend this B&B, I don’t believe you could do better.

We recently stayed at Maison Jules with our two boys (12 and 14) - and booked the 2 bedroom apartment. It was a fantastic choice vs. one of the local hotels - the house is simply beautiful, and Alex was a brilliant host. She had delicious French breakfast prepared for us before our daily tours, and was able to answer all our many questions in perfect English - along with booking us reservations at great restaurants within walking distance. Thanks so much for making our vacation very special!

Found this beautiful B&B on Tripadvisor, and stayed one night on the way from Paris to Bordeaux. We were in the Martin room, which is huge and luxurious. Alex is an excellent host and served a very good breakfast. She also recommended a good restaurant for our anniversary dinner, and that was a great meal (Saint Honore).
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Can only recommend the Martin room which overlooks the rear rather than the street. I don't know...
