  • I will just write you a brief summary of our experience: FABULOUS!!! The inn in Chitenay was very charming, its yard space relaxing, the room quite lovely and comfortable, and meals were very good. Above all, the staff was superb - could not do enough to help, and could not have been more pleasant. At the top of them all was Laure who had a great sense of humor, followed through on what she promised, and made us feel quite at home. We had a wonderful trip, and would definitely use your company in the future or recommend it to others. Paul Citrin USA

Travelling by bicycle is the perfect way to explore the many sites and towns of the renowned Loire Valley. Based in a delightful family run hotel in the small town of Chitenay, you will be provided with a bike, maps and route notes to discover the surrounding forests, vineyards and medieval towns and the famous chateaux of Cheverny and Chambord. In the evenings, soak up the warm atmosphere of the hotel and garden and sample the hotel's excellent local cuisine and wine.
