Western Loire Valley base / Saumur or Chinon or both?

Jump to last reply

Spending a week in the Loire Valley. At present am booked for 2 nights in Blois (to see Blois, Chambord, Cheverny and Beauregard) then 2 nights in Amboise (for the chateau there and at Loches and Chenonceau, as well as Chaumont if I feel up to it).

For my last 4 nights I was thinking of 2 days in Chinon (at the Hotel Diderot) and 2 in Saumur (at the Hotel Anne d'Anjou).

Does changing hotels make sense, or are Saumur and Chinon so close that it would be better to stay in just one of them -- and, if so, which do people recommend?

Will be visiting Angers, Villandry, Fontevraud Abbey and Chinon.

Thanks for your help!
