We choose hotels that are authentically French, charming and typical of the region, and offer an excellent value. We choose 3- and 4-star hotels to ensure a high level of comfort, including en suite bathrooms, WiFi and air conditioning.  It’s also important for the hotels to be well-situated, to keep driving time and distance to a minimum and to make sure you are as close as possible to the vineyards and other local sites of interest.  We visit and thoroughly check out each hotel before including it in a trip. In wine regions that are large and spread-out, you will only change hotels once or twice during a week-long trip (to keep driving times to a minimum each day), and in other regions there is only one centrally-located hotel.
