Le Grand Hôtel de Tours
My hotel in the Loire Valley
The Grand Hotel of Tours, in the heart of the Loire Valley, is the privileged destination for discovering the most important Châteaux de la Loire (or the Loire Valley Castles), Chenonceau, Chambord, Amboise and the fabulous parks of Villandry, Bourdaisière and Saint Cosme. Near the vineyards of Vouvray, Saumur, Bourgueil, Montlouis or Chinon, make the best of your trip by visiting the wine cellars and tasting wines from Touraine! Built in 1927 by Touraine’s own architect Maurice Boille and interio decorator Pierre Chareau, this hotel has the soul and the style from another time, yet still current. You’ll appreciate its façade with remarkable architecture, its 30s-style salons and bars, its demanded numerous services provided by a qualified and smiling team. Recently renovated, the hotel preserves a vintage spirit within its 90 warm-toned rooms, with wood furniture and modern equipment. The Grand Hotel in Tours is very central and convenient; it’s perfect for a business or a tourist trip. Ideally located near the train station, it’s just in front of the Palais des Congrès Vinci that hosts all the important cultural events, from concerts and shows to seminars and trade fairs.
