... nearby fields, chestnuts that I later googled and realized were not the edible kind, apples and pears on trees and covering the roadside, and an ear of corn I stole from one of many fields, sorry. I also passed endless fields of sunflowers. In the end, I reached Chenoceaux, but decided to visit the following day and spend the evening washing clothes, charging phones, finishing the book, ...
Got to bed late last night. Another yummy breakfast in a beautiful French Provincial dining room, of fruit salad, yoghurt, croissants and bread with their own home made jams. We walked to the street to see the market, bought bread and fillings to have a picnic lunch.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
Hotel Le Monarque is a good hotel except for two areas. Firstly the WiFi does not reach many of the rooms. Saw a few guests sitting in or near the lobby using their computers where they had access.
