This lovely 15th Century manor punches well above its humble 2 star rating. Purchased and renovated a few years ago by the Dutheil family (relatives of the local wine dynasty), Diderot is operated by siblings Laurent, Françoise and Martine. There is no restaurant (which is no handicap when one considers the choice available to guests within a ten minute walk), but breakfast here is not to be missed. The family produces over 1,600kg of homemade jam each year, boasting a selection of 55 different varieties, all of which is consumed over the heavy wooden communal tables in the beamed dining room. Sadly, they are not available for purchase by guests although you can buy the family recipe book 'Jam in the cupboard' as a souvenir of your stay. The 27 rooms, mostly situated around a central graveled courtyard which doubles up as the parking lot are traditionally decorated, some with pieces of modest antique furniture. Prices for the region are very reasonable. In addition, the Dutheil's provide very efficient and free wi-fi to all their guests. Closed for most of December and two weeks over January/February. Very highly recommended. (Last stayed 04/11)

This two star hotel overlooking the main square has 33 basic rooms situated both in the original 19th Century building and a more recent rear annex. This is functional rather than comfortable and serves well enough for an overnight stay although it is not recommended as a long term option. There is free parking opposite in the square, but be aware this also houses the local market on Thursdays so any outstanding vehicles are evicted in the early hours. Average. (Last stayed 02/11).

Takes its name from its Rabelais connection; the writers father ran his affairs from this tall, turreted 15th Century palace which originally served as the local bailiffs office. There are seven comfortable, if somewhat cramped rooms. Each comes with its own theme and are spread over five stories. Accessed by a central spiral staircase, this can be a little daunting for those who tend not to travel lightly but for those in need of an historical fix, this two star establishment should prove suitable enough. Next door, serviced by a small terrace, is its restaurant, Le Gandoyau. This promises a host of local dishes but in truth the food is poor and the service comes without a smile. Not recommended. (Last dined 04/11).  

Hotel-Restaurant – de la Treille

T: + 33 2 47 93 07 71 
Resto.latreille@orange.fr 
This small restaurant with four upstairs rooms is run by a husband (he’s in the kitchen) and wife team. It's a good place to sit on the terrace and enjoy an early morning coffee and watch the world from the edge of the square. Inside, however, is dark and a little grubby. The menu is made up of some simple homely staples, although I can't comment on the quality of the food on offer. (Last visited 04/11).

A trendy new bistro on the edge of Place Fontaine with a large, multi-roomed restaurant and plenty of options for open air dining on the square outside. The menu contains classic French brasserie favourites and a well-chosen wine list with advice available from their dedicated sommelier. The quality of the food is good but the service by the indifferent young team is slow and inconsistent which is a shame. There are also six bedrooms available on the first floor. Open for early morning coffee from 07h30 and serves until midnight. Closed Wednesday. Recommended for the food and wine but patience is needed when it comes to the service. (Last dined 04/11).

Restaurant - Au Chapeau Rouge

Chinon
 
T/F: + 33 2 47 98 08 08 
Chapeau.rouge@club-internet.fr 
www.auchapeaurouge.fr 
A relatively large restaurant split between two distinct dining areas and situated in a quiet corner of Place Fontaine. Chef Christophe Duguin cooks local and seasonal dishes in a competent, if unexciting, manner whilst madame looks after the front of house. There is a reasonable wine list which includes a good selection from the Chinon appellation although these are from more recent vintages. Service is friendly and prices are moderate. Au Chapeau Rouge teeters on the edge of being traditional and outdated. Closed mid-October to mid-November and again from mid-February to mid-March, Sunday night and Monday. (Last dined 02/11).
 

Restaurant - L’Océanic

Chinon
 
T: + 33 2 47 93 44 55 
F: + 33 2 47 93 38 08 
Oceanic.restaurant@club-internet.fr 
As the name might suggest, the focus here is on all things fishy, which also extends to amphibious reptiles (the frogs legs in butter, garlic and parsley are particularly recommended) and fresh lobster is housed in a tank by the door, with diners encouraged to select their own dinner on arrival. L'Oceanic is owned and run by Chef Patrick Descoubles and his very smartly dressed wife, Marie-Paule. Prices here are moderate to expensive depending on the menu one selects, but is relatively good value regardless. The cooking is more than competent and there is a very good wine list with its own pages dedicated to Chinon and includes some older vintages which are all correctly priced. Cheeses are supplied from the famous affineur house of Mons. Tables are available on the quiet pedestrian street outside during the season. Service here is friendly and attentive. Closed end of April and end of August, Sunday night and Monday. Recommended. (Last dined 04/11).
 

Restaurant - L’Ardoise 
42 Rue Rabelais 
Chinon 

T: + 33 2 47 59 48 78 
www.lardoise-chinon.com 
L'Ardoise was opened in 2005 by husband and wife team, Stéphane and Yelana Perrot; he’s in the kitchen whilst the chatty Yelana works the front of house. It is the favourite haunt of local wine courtier, Charles Sydney. The food here, as described by Yelana herself, is 'cinema' which some diners might interpret as a modern take on classic French cuisine. My own interpretation is that the food is over elaborate to the detriment of its substance. There is a short wine list that has a focus on local growers. Moderate to expensive. Should the conversation ever run dry, there is a large and well stocked tropical fish tank to gaze into. (Last dined 02/11)

Situated in the heart of the medieval town, Les Années 30 might consider itself as the most formal of dining experiences in Chinon, especially after the demise of 'Au Plaisir Gourmand' (Chinon's only Michelin starred establishment which once stood exactly opposite) a few years ago. The restaurant stretches over two floors in this ancient wood and stone building. Chef Stéphane Charles prepares local ingredients producing a menu that is classic haute-cuisine with formal service to match. The wine list is good and has a selection of well-chosen local producers - with a few older vintages extracted from the caves of some supportive growers. Closed end of June, end of November, Tuesdays (except between May and September) and Wednesday. Moderate to expensive, but recommended. (Last dined: 04/11).

This brightly painted café is on the corner of the Place Fontaine and makes a welcome stop for coffee, beer or a glass of wine, depending on your mood. You can also get a modest plate of cheese or charcuterie here during the day. It is operated (with standard Teutonic precision) by German ex-banker Rainer Schmidt and his Chinonnaise wife, Patricia. Next door to the bar is a wine shop with a decent selection sourced from local producers and available, in theory, at the same price as those charged at the domaine. Rainer also offers tastings for groups of between 10 and 18 people at vaulted cellars, below. Recommended. The bar tends to close early evening. (Last dined 04/11)

Sazilly, one of the communes on the rive-gauche of the Chinon appellation, is a 15 minute drive away from the centre of town and sits opposite the cellar of Domaine Charles Joguet. It is an old relais de post which dates back to around 1870. There are two separate dining rooms seating a combined seventy covers. Chef-proprietor Jean-Marc Gervais and his wife, Florence, run a serious operation serving classical cuisine which is based on seasonal ingredients and the day’s menu might include Escalope de foie-gras sur crème de potimarron or Tête de Veau, sauce ravigote, both signature dishes. The wine list carries over 400 references from the Loire and includes some older examples at very modest prices. Closed Sunday evening and all day Monday. Annual closure: Mid November to early December and first three weeks in January. Highly recommended and certainly worth the detour out of town. (Last dined: 04/11).

This 17th century manor house is about a ten minute drive north of Chinon and sits close to the banks of the Vienne . The rooms here are a little bit musty and in need of renovation. Although there is a restaurant here, I’ve only ever made use of the rooms. (Last stayed: 06/04).

There is evidence that hotel existed here 500 years ago with many ancient artifacts (which may be viewed in the local museum) discovered during the renovations of the 16th Century building. The hotel stands in Place Fontaine with many of its 30 rooms having wrought iron balconies overlooking the square below and the fortress above. The hotel is operated as a Best Western, although it barely conforms to the bed-factory image most associated with the chain. There is a ground floor restaurant which spills out into the square during the season. This, I believe is operated independently, and serves basic if classic dishes; not all local.

I’ve never stayed here, but those who have seem to recommend it. This two star hotel is located on the banks of the Vienne and is within about five minute walk of the centre of town. Some of the ten rooms are river facing which, I imagine, must also be noisy given this is the main Chinon to Bourgueil road.

For those on a budget. This basic hotel is on the edge of a retail park on the outer ring-road of the town. It’s a bit isolated, so unless you’re the sort of guy content with eating a McDonald’s burger for dinner, you’d need transport to get into the town from here.

Le Haut Clos has been under the ownership of the Bordeau family since the mid-1980s. It’s a wooden chalet-type building set up on a hillside close to the main Chinon to Loudon road. There are views from here along the valley of the Vienne. The hotel has a two star rating and has nine rooms all enjoying a garden view. The dining options include eating on the terrace which looks over towards the fortress or eating in the rather rustic dining room which bills itself as une table en Rabelaisie, where one can eat copiously from grills prepared on a huge wood-fired chimney.

Seven kilometres from Chinon and housed in a 15th Century castle (itself established on the foundations of an 11th Century military fortress), the Château de Marçay has been operating as a hotel since 1973. There are 34 well-appointed and individual rooms in the main building and an old converted dependence referred to as the Pavillion des Vignes which, as the name suggests looks across the hotels own 15 hectares of appellation Touraine vineyards. The wines are not made on site but rather in the cellar of local vigneron, Pascal Avril. There is a gastronomic restaurant (with one Michelin Star) serving traditional dishes often sourcing ingredients from their own potager. The wine cellar is located 12 metres below the chateau and is filled with some 12,000 bottles. There is an outdoor heated swimming pool, a tennis court and bowling green. The same company also operates the excellent Relais & Chateaux listed Les Hautes Roches in Rochecorbon, close to Vouvray. In addition to the vineyards, there is a wooded park planted to truffle oaks and the hotel boasts an outdoor heated swimming pool, a tennis court and bowling green. Closed mid-January to the beginning of March. The hotel is open all week but the restaurant is closed Sunday and Monday between November and March.
