Conferences, celebrations and get-togethers. A superb function venue located between Le Mans, Tours and The Loire Valley

With a large and versatile 80 square metre function room, atmospheric private courtyard and highly professional staff the Hotel de France lends itself brilliantly to any gathering.  The room can accommodate 10 – 80 people.

For bookings requiring additional services over and above hotel room and restaurant reservations, eg: full travel (ferries, airline tickets, itineraries), stays elsewhere, escorted tours and day trips, the Hotel de France’s sister company, ABTA registered tour operator Classic Grand Touring will be delighted to arrange these for you.

Meetings and conferences

For those looking to get away from faceless corporate venues, delegates will love the Hotel de France with its fine food, stylish rooms and lively ambience. Our function room has full conferencing facilities and friendly, efficient staff for whom nothing is too much trouble.  It’s also surprisingly affordable compared with many traditional conference settings.


The hotel was specially chosen by the Aston Martin Owners Club as the venue for its 50th anniversary – but has broad appeal.  It also recently hosted a gathering of French tax inspectors!

With superb cuisine and 25 stunning rooms, why not take over the hotel?!


For an impossibly romantic wedding celebration, French style, the Hotel de France is hard to beat. From rooms with four poster beds overlooking the sleepy square, to exquisite wedding breakfasts in the hotel’s leafy courtyard, every need and wish is catered for.

Birthdays, anniversaries and family celebrations

The Hotel de France, La Chartre-sur-le-Loir, is fast becoming known as THE destination for unforgettable, fun get-togethers. 30th birthdays, 40th birthdays, 50th birthdays, 60th birthdays, wedding anniversaries… they keep on coming!  Great food, great friends, great surroundings.  Perfect!
