Even though its decor is akin to a seaside resort, you won’t feel lost at sea staying at this quaint hotel on the banks of the Loire. Only a 5-min. walk from the château, it’s a great option for travelers touring the region without a car. There is plenty of character at this B&B-like inn, from the vintage maritime posters, pillows with sailboat motifs, and ancient building features from the 12th, 15th, and 16th centuries. Most rooms are rather large for the size of the establishment, though beware of the narrow staircase. A tiny restaurant on the ground floor is open to outside guests, with one of the owners doing double duty as chef. His love of the region shines in such culinary creations as savory blancmange with goat cheese and tomatoes confit or guinea fowl cooked in local Crémant de Loire sparkling wine. Main courses from18.50€; fixed-price lunch menu 25.50€ and dinner 38.50€, the restaurant is open Tues–Sat noon–1:30pm and 7:30–9pm.
