Covering captivating small hotels, pensioni, auberges, inns and guest houses

Several of our places to stay in Pays de la Loire are on the river Loire, or close to it, making excellent bases for exploring the famous Loire chateaux. They include Manoir les Minimes at Amboise.

This is magnificent countryside, offering not only fairytale chateaux in impossibly romantic riverside settings (in one case, built right across the river) but also terrific wines, epecially if you like subtle dry whites such as Sancerre, Pouilly Fume and Muscadet.

As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in Pays de la Loire offers an exceptionally interesting range to choose from: guesthouses (chambres d'hote), restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
