The Bon Laboureur is both a very comfortable place to stay and one of the best restaurants in Touraine with impeccable service and a very good wine list (see ‘Places to eat’). Founded in 1786 as a Relais de Poste, Antoine Jeudi took it over in 1902 and now his great grandson, also called Antoine, runs it. American writer Henry James stayed here and he mentioned his visit in A Little Tour in France. There are 25 rooms and suites, public rooms to relax in and a decent size swimming pool in the comfortable grounds. Free parking.

Useful information: Rooms: €120-€160; suites: €210-€280; breakfast €14.50.
