Le Rivage Review

This small, white-walled hotel is a bit off the beaten track (take the N20 south from Orléans to Olivet, then turn right into Avenue de Verdun and continue parallel to the River Loiret for a mile or so), but it makes a pleasant base. Le Rivage has been a family affair since 1954, and Jean-Pierre Béreaud provides a warm welcome. Guest rooms are compact yet comfortable, and each has a little balcony with a view of the tree-lined Loiret (the best is from No. 4). You can also drink in the river view from excellent restaurant (no lunch Saturday; no dinner Sunday, November–April); popular with locals, the stylish menu changes seasonally.
