We just returned from a delightful stay in Chenonceaux. After visiting Château Chenonceau we spent the night at Auberge du Bon Laboureur. This is a charming boutique hotel with no more than perhaps 20 rooms. It has a private pool across the street behind stone walls, a Michelin restaurant and a staff well trained in service. Our room had a king sized bed, air conditioning (well appreciated in August!), a decent sized bathroom, and is only a couple of hundred meters from the Château itself. It began life in 1746 as a coaching inn and now has been in the hands of the same family for over a hundred years. We enjoyed our stay here and found it to be more charming hotel than many we’ve stayed in in other European cities. In addition to its own wonderful restaurant, there is another fine restaurant across the street called Le Rosarie.
