Chinon has just a handful of hotels, but they offer a warm welcome and solid value.


Place du Général de Gaulle (part of which is known as place de la Fontaine) and adjacent rue Rabelais are home to quite a few restaurants as well as several food shops, including a small supermarket. Reserve at weekends and from Easter to October.

Drinking & Nightlife

A few cafes and pubs can be found around place du Général de Gaulle and along adjacent rue Rabelais.
