Hôtel le Rabelais
This Logis de France hotel, only 5 minutes from the town centre, set in a flowered and shaded park, makes for a relaxing base and is ideally located for exploring the Mervent forest. The entrance of the hotel has a very cosy feel with separate lounge areas situated near to, and around, the hotel bar. Although it's one of our larger hotels, with 54 rooms, you'll still feel the personal touch. Bedrooms are located on two floors; some on the ground floor have their own patio and overlook the swimming pool. All rooms are fully equipped with satellite TV, telephone and an Internet connection. The gardens are beautifully kept and the swimming pool is actually big enough for a swim which isn't always the case with hotel pools. There are many loungers dotted around for a spot of relaxation and a play area keeps children entertained.
The restaurant offers delicious cuisine, rich in traditional, local recipes. Entrées are usually chosen from the buffet which offers a wonderful, fresh selection to whet your appetite. Dinner can be eaten indoors or out on the terrace alongside the pool. Breakfast is served buffet style and you'll be spoilt for choice.
