The rooms are like a B&B, nicely decorated and homey. There's no air conditioning but they have nice fans in each room. They offer a breakfast which consists of one glass of juice, coffee or tea, breads, jams and goat cheese. The goat cheese is...More

We stayed at the Diderot for two nights. They didn't give us the accommodation we had asked for but were able to change it. The room had a bright and modern design but was small. If you like 250 varieties of jam, then breakfasts may...More

Stayed 2 nights in Chinon and found the place well to our liking. The breakfast jams come in great variety of mixtures. Stayed in an older part, and the view was OK. Lots of dark oak walls and the stairs had a rope railing going...More
