Hotels in Loire Valley
As one of France's most popular destinations, there are hundreds of Loire Valley hotels to choose from, and covering a wide range of price points. The most luxurious ones are stylishly converted chateaux, but there are also many charming traditional inns. These are some of our top choices for the best hotels in Loire Valley:
Domain des Hauts de Loire. House in a hunting lodge with ponds and vine-covered walls that dates back to 1860, this picturesque Loire Valley hotel is ideal for nature lovers. It also gets raves for being a good value.
Auberge de Chassignolles. Set in the tiny village of Chassignolles, this eight-room inn makes for an idyllic country stay, with spectacular views of wildflower-dotted meadows and the town's 12th century church.
Chateau de Noirieux. You can sleep like a baron, at this palatial Loire Valley hotel surrounded by nine hectares and steeped in history.
Chateau de Charge in Le Vigneron. With spacious cottages set around the main building, this is one of the best family hotels in the Loire Valley—there's even a children's tea on Tuesdays.
A former 19th-century hunting lodge with 31 Empire-style rooms set on 178 forested acres between Blois and Amboise.
The principal structure is an exceptional example of colloquial perigourdin architecture, with a façade of limestone blocks in a deep, drenched-ocher color; schist roof shingles; and knobbly pisé floors—schist chiseled into small, triangular stones driven pointy-side-down into wet, beaten earth.
The eight white rooms are basic, but the views are ravishing, whether of the village’s 12th-century church or the surrounding wildflower meadows.
