Rooms & Rates
Royalty and nobility have flocked to this part of central France for centuries. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, if it's "French splendour, style and gastronomy you seek, the Loire Valley will exceed your expectations" (Lonely Planet). With castles, vineyards and scenic views aplenty, the valley has become one of the most visited destinations in France.
Hostellerie La Croix Blanche is opposite 12th-century Abbaye de Fontevraud -- a former monastic complex and later a Napoleonic prison -- which now holds concerts and exhibitions. The hotel can arrange entry for 10€ per adult. Château de Montsoreau, less than 10 minutes' drive from the hotel, is a great spot for soaking up views of the River Loire.
Expect exposed ceiling beams and tufa walls at this 17th-century former coaching inn, which is a typical design of the region. You can relax by the log fire in the lounge or enjoy contemporary and classic French fare in Le Plantagenêt restaurant.
Rooms have views of the town, the courtyard or Abbaye de Fontevraud. Wi-Fi is free.
