The Hostellerie Gargantua is a character hotel steeped in history located right in the centre of the medieval town of Chinon. It is the perfect choice for a holiday for two, a family holiday or for your business travels.
Célyne and Olivier offer a warm and friendly welcome to their establishment which offers 7 comfortable rooms located within the 15th century Palais du Bailliage, the former residence of Chinon's Bailiwick and where the father of the famous writer François Rabelais once pleaded.
Located at the foot of the Château de Chinon, the Hostellerie Gargantua is the ideal base from which to explore the city of François Rabelais : the old part of town with its timber-framed houses and turrets, its quays running alongside the Vienne, the art of good living and of course its famous vineyard. The Touraine, in the heart of Val de Loire, also boasts plenty of places of interest to explore.
