Our places to stay in Centre include several on the River Loire which make useful bases for exploring the famous Loire chateaux – for example Le Bon Laboureur at Chenonceaux. Several of the most famous Loire chateaux fall withing this region, including Azay-le-Rideau at Amboise.

The Loire, which flows into the Atlantic on the coast of the neighbouring region of Pays de la Loire, also cuts a swathe through Centre. Among its most noteable towns are Tours and Orleans. In the Middle Ages Orleans was the cultural and intellectual capital of France.

As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in Centre 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.
