All the charm of a guest house

Loire valley hotels, near the Château de Chenonceau

01 |


Auberge du Bon Laboureur occupies Chenonceaux’s former coaching inn. Built in 1786, it has withstood the passage of time, playing host to a series of post-masters and travellers before being converted into an inn. The Jeudi family has been in charge of the property’s destiny for more than 100 years.

The inn is now a gourmet restaurant and 5-star boutique hotel managed by Antoine Jeudi. The place has real character. It is steeped in history, standing testament to the French way of life.

A prime location

Auberge du Bon Laboureur is nestled in the heart of Touraine, a region known for its Renaissance châteaux, the wild, untamed Loire, and stunning gardens (Touraine is known as the Garden for France for good reason), plus forests and vineyards on the hillsides.
The Loire Valley and the Château de Chenonceau are both UNESCO World Heritage sites (2000 and 2017 respectively).

Gourmet restaurant and boutique hotel

Auberge du Bon Laboureur is a gourmet restaurant and boutique hotel situated just a 5-minute walk from the Château de Chenonceau, and within striking distance of Beauval Zoo, the Château du Clos Lucé (Leonardo da Vinci’s former residence), the Château d’Amboise (King Francis I’s royal residence), Chaumont-sur-Loire and Chambord. It’s the perfect base for exploring Touraine and sampling the French way of life. This elegant, cultured, boutique property, with its simple luxuries, is ideal for a peaceful break.
“Viva da Vinci”: Touraine celebrates 500 years of the Renaissance in 2019.
