Hotel Diderot has been recommended to us by cyclists who stayed here while cycling in th Loire. It's also used by cycle tour companies so it's up to speed with what cyclists want. It's an accueil velo hotel and therefore carries accrediatation from the tourist board for its cycling services. These include a fully enclosed courtyard for bikes (locked 9pm to 7am). Local bike routes and maps are available from reception, along with information on bike hire and local repairs. The hotel is on a quiet street a short ride from the historic Chinon centre. Chinon is a popular stop for cyclists on the river Vienne, with the beautiful Chateau de Chinon a particular highlight. The river and backroad routes here feed up to the main Loire bike route to the north. The rooms at Hotel Diderot are decorated in a modern style despite the building dating back to the 17th century. You can have breakfast – including home-made jams – on the terrace or by the original fireplace when the weather turns cooler. All rooms are en-suite.
