FERRY & HOTEL
Novotel Blois, Blois
France > Loire Valley > BLOIS
Blois is an attractive town alongside the river Loire and has plenty of things to see and do so it's an excellent base for visiting the impressive châteaux of the region. Narrow sloping streets cluster around the château in the historic centre which is compact and easy to navigate - the tourist office can supply maps of marked 2k walking trails around town which take in all the things of interest to see including the cathedral, the Beauvoir tower and the Foundation of Doubt. Another unmissable sight is the extraordinary Maison de la Magie, a museum dedicated to the magic and illusions of Robert Houdin. It's a fantastic experience for all ages - don't miss the half hourly show where a 6 headed dragon appears at the windows! And a great place to stay is the Novotel which is only 15 mins from the centre and has recently been renovated. Its contemporary style provides well equipped, comfortable bedrooms and there is a gourmet bar where snacks and light meals are available. There is also the added bonus of a heated outdoor pool, great for relaxing after a day seeing the sights.
Up to 2 children under 16 stay free when sharing a room with 2 adults (breakfast included).
Gourmet bar closed Sat/Sun.
