This old posting station from the 18th century has become a charming boutique hotel, with exposed beams and tuffeau stone, and centuries-old trees in the back yard. Renovated in 2011, the historical hotel offers 26 guest rooms and facilities include a lobby with a hotel safe for valuables, a restaurant, a breakfast/dining room, wireless Internet access and a car park.
This hotel is situated in Azay-le-Rideau, around 150 metres from the famous and charming castle. Set in Touraine in the heart of the Loire Valley, this hotel is around 1.1 km from the Gardens of Villandry, 4.5 km from the Chateau de Chenonceau and 2 km from Chateau de Usse (Sleeping Beauty).
