    1. Chinon is definitely one of favourite towns ( for a typical french experience in good central location stay at Diderot if you can get in but not luxury with lifts etc!). Try L'Annees Trente or L'Oceanic if you prefer fish. Would also thoroughly recommend Diane de Meridor in Montsoreau ( great good value lunch menu and ask for table overlooking Loire). These are all good value and great food
      Bon Appetit if not too late!



      1. Une Ile in Angers is on my short list of target restaurants outside Paris. Besides the in-town restaurant, the Boss├ęs offer lodging just outside of town. I believe that these hosts share "soul".
