Spent 3 days here and we really liked it a lot. Run by a lovely couple who could not have been more welcoming. A beautiful, large old building right on the bank of the River Vienne just outside Chinon. Riviere is a small and very quiet village. Our room looked directly out onto the river as did the window of...

We stayed at Domaine du Heron in June, as our friend was getting married in a chateau in Chinon (not the main chateau!). The grounds are beautiful, and the riverside location is amazing. We had a lovely view from our room. The bed was comfortable, the room was spacious and the bathroom was large and pretty, with a dressing table...

This was the start of our summer tour with a couple of friends. It's not cheap as chambre d'hote go but it's worth the money, and probably cheaper and better than the three star hotels we stayed at later. The rooms are roomy and clean and ours had a really spacious en suite with one of the best views of...

Warm welcome, incredible location.  There was a great view of Chinon and the river. And we really liked an 12th century church in the yard. Very clean, room spacious, wonderful bathroom. The homemade breakfast was plentiful, fresh and sumptuous. We were comfortable and absolutely loved staying there. Highly recommended.

My wife and i stayed at Domaine Heron 511-5/13 Be sure you realize it's location is on the south side of the Vienne. It's about 3-4 kilometers from Chinon. Jeanne is a very friendly hostess and is eager to please. She speaks minimal English so practice your French. The entrance is a bit tricky as the rue des pecheurs is...

BE PREPARED to pay in cash! NO credit cards are accepted. Very nice lady and kindly gentleman run this B&B. English is not spoken here, but a little from her. Had a relatively large room with a view of the river and the courtyard. Furnishings are from antiques to eclectic modern. Nice looking shower heads, but water pressure too low...

Location is on the countryside, remote, calm and beautifully at the riverside. Great house and grounds. Spacy room and special furnishing, had to be ventilated, yet quite pricy (120,-). Very good breakfast and exceptionally nice landlady.

This is a nice B & B in a historic building right on the river's edge. It's a very quiet, relaxing & comfortable room with nice views on the river. It's a 10 minute drive to the old town of Chinon. The hostess is very nice and helpful. Highly recommended!

Our second stay at this B & B and once again we were delighted with the room and everything else. The breakfast was great and set in a riverside location was all that could be desired of a peaceful, quiet getaway.
