Room Gatien - 25m²
A tribute to Saint Gatien and the cathedral of Tours
The room Gatien celebrates the first bishop of Tours, known for his gentleness and perseverance. He gave his name to the cathedral, a Gothic masterpiece built between 1170 and 1547 and located 500 yards from the guesthouse towards the Loire river.
A bright room, dressed in shades of gold, honey and wood, it is all elegance and refined simplicity. The marble fireplace, 19th century mahogany desk and elaborate brass lamps give this guest room the exclusive touch and feel of a small “boutique hotel“.
The room also inspires serenity. The golden rose window patterns on the walls of the room and the bathroom are reminiscent of the magnificent stained glass of the cathedral’s transepts. The decoration of the bathroom is in perfect harmony with the bedroom.
This deluxe room is a perfect match for anyone looking for a boutique hotel in Tours and a central starting point for visiting the Loire valley chateau region.
- Bedroom: super king size bed 180cm x 200cm (twin beds possible). Antique desk. Fireplace. Large closet.
- Bathroom: en-suite, walk-in shower. Hairdryer. Toilet.
- Television, 80cm (32in) Samsung flat screen LED.
- Internet Access (RJ45 and wifi).
My family of 6 stayed at La Maison Jules for two nights this August. Alex was extremely welcoming and helpful with restaurant and tourist attraction ideas/advice. The location of the B&B is perfect to walk to shops, restaurants, the river & historic buildings. It is also not too far of a drive to different castles in the Loire Valley. The building & rooms are beautiful, unique, clean and comfortable. There is also a nice porch outside in the backyard. Our breakfasts in the morning were delicious and the wifi was much appreciated. Alex is a wonderful host and her B&B is perfect! Merci Alex! The Greaves family, August 2016.
Superb Place to Stay
We stayed here on our way south and again on our return journey north. We stayed in two different rooms, both were equally superb, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Our host Alexandra was very welcoming, helpful and full of helpful advice on the surrounding area and places to eat. She could not have been more accommodating. If we return to Tours which we hope we do, we would most definitely stay here again as it is an idillic oasis in the middle of the City. Thank you Alexandra and you two little hosts who were equally pleasant.
