Places to stay

This part of the Loire has a number of de luxe hotels, which rightly feature in many guide books and include Château de Marçay described below. There is also Château d’Artigny near Montbazon, Le Prieuré ( at Chênehutte les Tuffeaux near Saumur and Château de Rochecotte ( near Langeais. However, in general I prefer to recommend lesser-known places to stay. There is also a wide choice of chambres d’hôtes in the area often offering a very personal service – Domaine de la Bellevue ( with just one room is one such example.
