“Character and charm in abundance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

Le Patio Saumur provided us with a delightful stay in Saumur with accommodation being full of character and charm. We stayed in the Blue room, which was more of a suite, and had a wonderful relaxing night on our journey south. The ambiance of the property was terrific and you could feel the history. The host Romain was a true character who's wish was for you to have a special break and enjoy yourselves. Breakfast was included in the room price and was excellent. If your planning a stay in Saumur be sure to try here - you will not be disappointed.

Another great trip advisor find! We stayed 2 nights on way back from French road trip. As soon as you step through the door and into the courtyard you know you're in for a treat. The room we had was huge - yes it was a bit shabby chic in decor but all so well put together and clean and comfortable I thought it was great. The star of the place is Romain who is so welcoming and helpful. In a great location too - there's free parking on the street but as we had a soft top car we parked in the hotel next door for a small fee - worth it for the piece of mind. Highly recommended

We had a lovely, huge room up under the eaves and overlooking the Loire! Best part though was our host, Romain, who truly seemed to want our stay to be the best ever. Suggestions of things to do, places to eat, and a glass of wine in the courtyard our last night there all contributed to making this one of the best places of our entire 3 month trip.
I can imagine going there to write or just be. The decoration in the public spaces is wonderful - quirky and interesting (think of old carriage lamps, a top hat and a enormous old but working clock among other things in the breakfast room). The courtyard is a tranquil oasis away from the street noise. A five (my husband says ten) minute walk to an excellent restaurant, Le Bistro Tonton (see separate review).
There is free parking just across the street!

Room Tip: Can't get the terrible rating away from pool and fitness center. LePatio has neither. Street n...

We just returned to the States from France. We were lucky enough to book a 2 night stay on our visit to the Loire Valley. Our room was very cozy, the building was beautiful, and our host, Romain was fabulous! Very nice breakfast in the morning and great atmosphere in the late afternoon/evening in the courtyard to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. As a bonus, the price was good.

I just returned from Saumur. I stayed at the wonderful Le Patio Saumur. It is a truly beautiful place with such ambiance. The blue suite I stayed in was very spacious and comfortable and the actual patio/courtyard is stunning and very beautiful. It is a wonderful place to sit in the evening and chill out. The breakfast is good with great coffee and french bread. The breakfast room is a designers paradise with such beautiful objects and so artistic. As an artist myself I felt very comfortable and at home here. But what really makes Le Patio so special is the host Romain Legrand. He is kind and considerate and such a beautiful person. he has such warmth and energy and it was a very special experience to meet him, because he is such a unique and lovely person and such a talented host. I love Saumur but staying at Le Patio made the visit extra special. I found it on google and thought the place looked lovely, but in real life it is even better and I would be happy to stay there for a lot longer if I had the time. I would recommend Le Patio Saumur to anybody and the experience of meeting Romain Legrande has been a privilage and a delight.

Room Tip: I just know that the Blue Suite was very comfortable and spacious.

Booked this place as a B & B, but it is really more like a boutique hotel. Chose it because of the rave reviews from other Tripadvisor contributors (I always check Tripadvisor first!). The owner, Romain, is a warm, very friendly and helpful man, who certainly adds to the charm of the place. Its position on the banks of the Loire, with the chateaux at its rear, could hardly be bettered, and it is only a short walk into the centre of town. Our room - the Turquoise room - was delightful, except for the very creaky floorboards, but what can one expect in a building four hundred years old. The inner courtyard is beautiful, and had the weather been kinder when we visited, we would have loved to linger there over a glass of wine. We asked Romain for a recommendation for dinner, and he suggested Le Pot au Lapin (see separate review), and we are so glad we did, as it was excellent. Breakfast is typically French, and could have been a bit more adventurous, but was enjoyable nevertheless. We would certainly recommend Le Patio to anyone thinking of staying in Saumur.

Our room was enormous on the top floor of the building. The colors were green and gold, very dark and a little opressive in my opinion. It rained the entire time we were there, maybe that it explains it. The bed was actually two beds pushed together, each had its own sheets and blanket, not ideal for a couple. The bathroom had a bathtub. Showers are taken without a shower curtain. you have to squat down in order to not get everything wet. The patio in the center courtyard is very pretty. It must be a nice place to relax when it is nice out. The room with the terra cotta tiles in their pamphlet looks gorgeous.
