Activities/Attractions: The Loire Valley is occupied with some of the best Chateaux in the country. This is due to the fact that from the 15th to the 18th centuries high society, Kings and Queens lavished their money on this area which became "their playground". So fortunately for us today they have left a legacy rich in architecture.
Blois was their "capital" during this period. Unfortunately during the war it was heavily damaged but it still retains it's wonderful charm.
The Château Royal de Blois is a veritable French architectural pearl. The Royal Residence in Blois was the home to French Kings and Queens for more than four centuries. This beautiful castle is renowned for its awesome 13th century hall.
Those into chateaux can make excursions from Blois to some other gems in the nearby countryside, including the well-known Chateau de Chambord.
Much of the historic ambience of medieval Blois remains preserved in its white-washed houses and narrow cobbled alleys.
General Information: Nestled back from the road that follows the bank of the Loire on the Place de la Grève in France (just a 5 minute walk to the Blois château) the Côté Loire Hotel was built during the 16th century and regularly Mme. de Sévigné settled in.
With the current owner's care and attention to detail, the hotel has become one of Blois most charming small hotels ... the lovely, old stone and timbered walls have embraced guestrooms for over 400 years. All our rooms at the hotel are equipped with bath or shower, w/c and telephone. Other features include:
Thierry and Laurent have concentrated on comfort and cleanliness, and sincerely want to offer value to their guests. Family mementos and antiques already decorate the public areas. A cozy bar doubles as reception and a side room serves as the lovely restaurant.
The hotel is open from February - December.
