The Chateau des Templiers was originally a Templar hunting lodge. It's in the quiet but gorgeous town of Ballan Mire in the Loire Valley. The rooms are modern, clean, and a great way to escape from the outside world (no mini bars, phones, or coffee makers). Mme Aubry, the woman who runs the hotel, is very nice and speaks English.
The grounds are lush and beautiful and the Aubry's family dog, Athos, will accompany you on your walk (or leave you alone if you ask him to!).
I don't think this hotel (which is really more like a bed and breakfast) would be practical unless you have a car, but it's less than half an hour from Tours and many other sites in the area.
The rates are very reasonable and much, much cheaper than the well-known chateaux/hotels.
