Overview

Royalty and nobility have flocked to this part of central France for centuries. If it's "French splendour, style and gastronomy you seek, the Loire Valley will exceed your expectations", says Lonely Planet. With castles, vineyards and scenic views aplenty, the valley has become one of the most visited destinations in France and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Hostellerie La Croix Blanche is opposite 12th-century Abbaye de Fontevraud -- a former monastery and later a Napoleonic prison -- which now holds concerts and exhibitions. Château de Montsoreau, a Renaissance-style castle that is now a contemporary art museum (entry fees apply), is less than 10 minutes' drive from the hotel and 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.

Located in the centre of the town in an historic square adjacent to an ancient Abbey, what more do you need to say! If eating in the restaurant the food is of the best quality.
