Five guest rooms that pay a tribute to the city of Tours and the Loire Valley.

An entirely renovated bed and breakfast accomodation in Tours, with personalised service and homely feel.
Straight out of a novel from Balzac, the mansion was transformed during the spring of 2012 into a luxury bed and breakfast in Tours city center. A small “boutique hotel”, located in the “rue Jules Simon”, the Maison Jules was named after Jules Simon, a French philosopher and statesman of the 19th century. The house has five guest rooms, all individually decorated and distributed over two floors, accessed by an antique staircase.
All rooms were re-decorated with the idea of preserving the sense of a family home while instilling a touch of modernity and design, mixing the latest materials and equipment with antique furniture. All the rooms of our bed and breakfast are beautifully furnished and decorated in unique styles, all with en-suite bathrooms and large walk-in showers or bath.
On the ground floor, guests are welcome to relax in the living room with its large fireplace and comfortable seats and sofa. The dining room is decorated in a warm and modern style; on its large table, guests and families will share their breakfast together. It is also possible to have breakfast at one of the separate tables in the living room, on the outdoor terrace or in the garden. On the first floor, guests may enjoy the comfort and calm of the library.
Tours Ardrée is one of three golf courses near the city of Tours. A 20 minutes drive up north from the city centre.
We were there last week-end for an early start on saturday morning … and played 9 holes in less than 2 hours on a very fine day (the summer seems to last forever this year).
Ardrée golf course is a real challenge, especially the back nine with a few tough finishing holes : 14th (tricky iron shot from the tee if you want a shot at the green), 15th (160 yards over a water hazard to this short hole’s green), 17th (240 yards up hill par three!) and 18th (you need a 220 yard carry to drive the ball over the burn…).
