Tours and the Loire Valley
Located in the city centre, our hotel invites you to enjoy all the rich heritage of Tours and its environs. At less than 5 minutes on foot, you’ll be able to visit the Château de Tours with its historical Guise tower, the Musée des Beaux-Arts (art gallery) with its garden and fabulous collections and also the Saint-Gatien cathedral, a true masterpiece of Gothic architecture. Tours is one of France’s protected “Villes d'Art et d'Histoire” (“Towns of Art and History”), and you’ll equally be stunned by the district of Old Tours. Around the Place Plumerau, you’ll be able to admire the dozens of timber-framed medieval houses as you enjoy a drink on the terrace of one of the numerous cafés.
Then, enjoy nature in the city as you walk along the banks of the Loire with its many green spaces. In particular, discover the magnificent botanical garden with its orangery and its beautiful tropical greenhouses. In the evening, make the most of the nearby Vinci Conference Centre, just 3 minutes from the hotel. Here, you’ll be able to enjoy a whole range of shows. Tours is also the gateway to the Loire Valley with its famous fairytale castles. Visit Villandry, Amboise, Azay-le-Rideau and Chenonceau, to name but a few.
