Before driving through the narrow streets of Chinon to reach La Boule d'Or, I did verify by email with the staff the exact route to be taken to reach the hotel - VERY glad I had done this. We did manage to get premium hotel parking, after parking on the street - I am sure parking may not be quite so easy during the summer season.
Staff were very helpful and accommodating, rooms were comfortable but above the street/restaurant which may be noisy late at night or during deliveries/trash collection. It was not an issue during our stay. Access to rooms is up a steepish metal stair case - in the courtyard - do be careful if it is damp.
Close to the river but no views, easy walking distance to the town sites, other restaurants etc.More
