1 rue du Château - Azay-le-Rideau

Price starting from 98.00
Le Grand Monarque is a Loire Valley hotel located in the center of Azay-le-Rideau, just 0.1 mile/150 meters from its famous and charming castle. Ideal for a leisure break in the heart of the Loire Valley, this ancient post relay, which dates back to the 18th Century, has become a charming boutique hotel, with exposed beams, elegant stonework, and secluded garden with century-old trees.

Guests will be welcomed in stylishly-decorated and spacious rooms, where they will be able to relax after a day of sightseeing and touring. You can unwind in the lounge bar and tea room, or rest in the shaded courtyard garden. In the winter, a lovely fireplace will be waiting for you. The Bistrot du Grand Monarque restaurant is open every evening for dinner, and offers traditional French cuisine in a pleasant atmosphere. In the morning, guests can enjoy a hearty breakfast buffet. This smoke-free hotel offers complimentary wireless Internet access throughout the property.

In this king's valley, you will dream about the famous nearby castles, Villandry and its breathtaking gardens, which Ussé said to have been the inspiration for the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale, Langeais, Chinon and its fortress where Joan of Arc met the future King, all less than 20 minutes away, and Chenonceau just 35 minutes away. The hotel staff will be pleased to share with you the region's history and art de vivre.

Please note that the hotel restaurant is closed on Sundays from May to September; and on Sundays and Mondays from October to April. Reservation is recommended.

The hotel is situated in the center of the town, 50 min from the known castle Azay-Le-Rideau. There's a free parking lot in front of the hotel. The hotel is very well decorated in the ancient style,with a taste, rooms and the long are cosy.WIFI is free. the only fault is a very expensive price of breakfast - 17€ per person!!that's incredible!like in a luxurious hotel in paris:)in some cafes nearabouts one can find a usual french breakfast at 8-9€/pers!
