The apartment was perfect and in a great location for our stay in Chinon . We used it as a home base for day trips throughout the Loire Valley. I'd definitely recommend it!
"Nature and Castles" is a gite with several suites. Our unit was very nicely renovated and decorated. It had a full and up-to-date kitchen and bathroom. Laundry facilities were available in the basement. It was comfortable, very clean and quite. There is parking but it is allocated on a first come, first served basis. The building is very old but has been carefully updated, maintained, and elegant. It is walking distance to everything. Agnes, the gite's owner, was welcoming and helpful. She took us through the apartment and was quick to respond to questions.
This is a perfect place to stay for anyone visiting the Loire Valley's chateaus and vineyards. The town is charming. With narrow cobblestone streets, it’s interesting to walk around and has a number of good restaurants offering a variety of food in a range of prices. Joan of Arc and Rabelais are only two of its famous residents.
Chinon sits just below the town’s ancient castle. Established as a hermitage (5th c.), the castle evolved to become home to Henry II (1154). On his death (1189), it passed to his and Eleanor of Aquitaine’s son Richard the Lionhearted. He passed it on to his brother King John of England.
Logement en parfait état, très confortable et spacieux. Idéalement situé dans le quartier historique, il permet de profiter du tout Chinon tout en appréciant le calme. Une belle lumière baigne la salle à manger et la vue sur la citadelle est parfaite. Tout est accessible, la citadelle royale, Brézé, Fontevraud, Saumur, Montseraud, Candes... entre Vienne et Loire. Nous reviendrons avec plaisir. Nous vous le recommandons.
El apartamento está muy bien situado en la villa de Chinon y para recorrer el Valle del Loira; y su propietaria Agnes es muy amable, dispuesta a facilitarte la estancia.
