A lovely place to stay on the outskirts of Chinon, easy to walk into town. The gite was very cool in the hot weather. There is a good sized shared swimming pool in an attractive setting.
Very friendly and kind owners who know a lot about the locality and especially Chinon wines.
Our room had everything e needed for a lovely stay, the breakfast were delicious and Sylvie made some lovely home made treats, Roger and Sylvia were extremely friendly and spent time suggesting the must do places to visit in the area. The pool was a welcome sight at the end of the day.The accommodation was within walking distance to the town and chateaux.
Thanks Roger and Sylvie, hope to be back again
Super friendly, lovely hosts - Sylvie and Roger - who helped me improve my spoken French immensely and are really knowledgeable about the surrounding area and the town, suggesting places to visit, and where to eat.
The room was really lovely, very comfortable, spacious and clean with a relaxing pool to use too - we had a terrace outside our room which was perfect. The breakfasts were amazing as well - lots of homemade produce and all delicious!
Great location, just out of town but within easy walking distance to the main shopping and restaurant area - and museums/church/chapel/fortress etc
THIS IS THE BEST PLACE WE HAVE STAYED - IT WAS PERFECT !
*J'espère que mon français est d'accord!*
Très amicale et charmante, Sylvie et Roger sont superbe. Ils m'a aidé améliorer mon français (à parler ) et ils ont suggère les endroits ( musées, forteresse etc) que nous pouvons visiter.
La chambre était très bien, confortable, propre et grande .....et il y'a une piscine aussi. Les petits-déjeuners était incroyable.
À pied c'est dix/quinze minutes au centre ville où Il y'a beaucoup des restaurants, bars et magasins.
ÉTAIT PARFAIT - LE MIEUX !!
The room we had was clean and spacious. The terrace in front of the room is nice and quiet, for a good start of the day or enjoy an afternoon glass.The swimming pool is a treat after a long day of tourism. And the couple running this bed and breakfast is very friendly and helpful, and make a delicious breakfast everyday. If I travel to Chinon again, I will certainly stay here again.
Just returned from a trip to the Loire which included a 4 night stay at Les Cathelinettes in Chinon. You stay in a small annexe to the owners house with a self contained entrance leading to a bedroom and en suite shower room. Breakfast is taken in the owners kitchen or on the terrace outside when the sun is shining.
The room is clean, spacious and well decorated and includes a fridge with light refreshments. The ensuite has a shower and a separate bath and although a bit dated in appearance is fine.
Outside is a private seating area and a swimming pool with sun loungers.
The owners could not do enough for us to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. The breakfast included fresh fruit every day and home made preserves. We were cycling in the area and left our bikes in the owners garage over night
We walked in to Chinon in the evening ( a 15/20 minute amble ) for dinner. The owners gave us recommendations for restaurants, bike rides, trips etc etc they genuinely could not do enough for us.
If you are looking for a flash hotel wth bells and whistles this is not for you. If you want a comfortable base to stay close to Chinon with warm and friendly owners on site you will not find anywhere better !
