눇This superb little B & B, (it only has two rooms), is situated along a narrow lane in the heart of old, historic Chinon. Each room has its own front door leading straight onto a lovely walled garden and guests can come and go as they please. Francis, the host, is most welcoming and engaging. He speaks excellent English but was happy for us to try out our rusty French on him. The breakfast he served was the best and most generous that we've ever encountered in France, featuring home-made jams, cakes, yogurts, and individual fruit bowls as well as an assortment of fresh breads and croissants from the best boulangerie in Chinon. Francis also offers secure, gated parking a short walk away and this is well worth the extra 3 euros involved.
