TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Agnes Sorel Chinon
Hotel Agnes Sorel is located on river front, a little way from the Centre Ville. The rooms are located in different sites so I can only comment on the room we had which was Chambre 8. The room was spacious, very clean with a beautiful, sunny courtyard out the front. The manageress is very helpful and friendly.

... face with a kitten (more like face to lower shin, really). We both stopped dead and looked at each other. Then she ran the other way around the tree. So I creeped back around the tree the other way and found her looking at me again. I made some "pss pss pss" noises and slowly lifted my camera. That made her bolt into some flowers. I found her again and made some more noises, but once I raised my camera she bolted again and that was the last I saw of her. I wonder if she ...

We had a good dinner at the restaurant of the hotel last night, toured the fortress this a.m. And just got back from a lovely bike ride through nearby villages this afternoon. We plan to try another restaurant tonight and then travel by car tomorrow to see a couple of the major chateaux in the area. It is only 7:00 pm......too soon to have a plan for tomorrow night.
We have moved on ...
