What our customers say
"Lovely historic hotel in Loches"
My wife and I enjoyed a pleasant stay at the George Sand. Though the hotel was, I believe, built in the 17th century, our room including bathroom, was clean and relatively modern, the bed was comfortable. Only criticism, as the weather was hot, a fan in the room would have been nice, and perhaps a small bar fridge. Also something to keep in mind, if you are physically challenged in some way, getting up and down the narrow stone staircase could be a challenge.
