Beautiful Hotel but just a little to far from the town centre unless you are travelling by car.
Rooms are very spacious,with nice on suits
Service was good however breakfast was poor for a hotel of that standard.
Hotel sits in beautiful grounds and has a lovely lounge area but a poor bar service.

Today we said good bye to our French hosts and head to Tour for the night. I really wanted to spent at least one night here as I had built myself up to visiting while back home and I'm so glad we did.

We had booked to go riding for the afternoon but unfortunately it was pouring with rain and quite cold. We gave the riding a miss and settled into the communal kitchen area ...
... in WW2. Beautifully furnished, with a nursery full of toys and the birthing room with cot etc. This chateau is the model for Tintin's adventures with Captain Haddock! We had thought there was to be some wine tasting, but this was an alternative to seeing the chateau, so we missed the wine. On to Chambord, the Loire's largest and most visited chateau. Truly vast, 4 wings modelled on Maltese Cross, mostly unfurnished and with Da Vinci's double helix staircase in ...
... and peaceful house is set in Parc Leonardo Da Vinci. Here he finished work on his 3 favourite paintings, including the Mona Lisa. A copy of this hung in one of the rooms, much larger than the original that we hope to see next week. In the basement were numerous models of his inventions. The grounds and gardens were lovely, and more models were round every corner. Flying ...
