Car park and directions

free for hotel guests
Hotel La Croix Blanche is located in the heart of the town of Fontevraud-l'Abbaye in the Loire Valley, this is a Unesco World Heritage area. Therefore parking signs are limited and small, but they can be found on EACH entrance road into the village.

Download our free Google Earth map below for easy access to our hotel car park OR
* set your Satnav (GPS) for the following address:  30, rue des Masques in Fontevraud-l'Abbaye, postcode: 49590, France
* or Satnav/GPS: latitude 47.182645, longitude 0.049555 (47°10’57.521’’N 0°2’58.398’’E)

In order to help you reach our hotel and car park please follow the instructions below:
* pedestrians/cyclists: you can reach the hotel, restaurant and bar-lounge on foot or by bicycle via the town square opposite the abbey (= 5 Place des Plantagenêts, 49590 Fontevraud-l'Abbaye)
* when entering Fontevraud by car look for the signs indicating our car park, (do not look for the signs indicating the hotel): the signs are quite small and dark grey.

Hotel La Croix Blanche is located opposite the abbey, however the car park is situated at the rear of the hotel building and can be reached via a residential area which leads into a one way street and then towards our car park (yes, hotel guests may use the one way street from the wrong end!)

* electric cars: recharge your electric car on Place de 8 Mai at 300 metres – credit cards accepted

Beware: sometimes the name of our town Fontevraud-l'Abbaye is written in different ways on the internet or the satnav: if necessary try Fontevreau, Fontevraude, Fontevrault, Fontevrault l'Abbaye, 49590 Fontevraud, Fontevraud abbey
The name of our hotel can also be different: hotel La Croix Blanche is also known as hotel de la Croix Blanche Fontevraud, hostellerie de la Croix Blanche, hotellerie La Croix Blanche Fontevraud or La Croix Blanche Fontevrault.

Pass sanitaire - French covid health pass

Details of the French pass sanitaire - covid health certificate & app

These times of corona/covid/delta are complicated for everyone

Information updated 25.7.2021

Thank you for checking the health requirements for a stay with us before travelling.
The French ‘pass sanitaire’ will be required when you arrive at a hotel and/or restaurant and possibly the terraces, from 1st of August 2021.
As the text of this new law is not yet 100% definite we ask you to look at the official websites of a French embassy,  French government website regarding covid  or other trustworthy websites before you travel. Check details for your particular country!

You are responsible for providing a valid pass sanitaire for every person in your room(s) when you check-in at reception or when you book a table at the restaurant; we do not look at individual vaccines, test results or other (personal) details. 
We only check that you have a valid ‘pass sanitaire’ which matches your passport.
Once the check completed on site we will give you a bracelet which gives you access to all our areas.

However if your ‘pass sanitaire’ is not valid we have to refuse access to hotel and/or restaurant and/or terrace.
Failing to provide a non valid pass sanitaire does not entitle you to a refund, discount, new stay, changing the dates of your stay etc...
  • Your cancellation conditions will be applied as indicated in the booking confirmation
  • We suggest travel insurance
  • The local pharmacy can do a ‘antigen’ test, please book your appointment via +33 2 41 51 71 13
  • Face masks need to be worn at all time inside
Lets make this world a safer place - starting with ouselves!

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

Our outdoor pool

for hotel guests only

Enjoy our new outdoor pool & garden area

In May 2020 we created a new pool area so you can enjoy the sun and the shade around our heated outdoor pool.
After a day of cycling, visiting the Loire Valley castles, local food markets and wineries enjoy a refreshing dip in our pool - the perfect way to unwind and relax . 

Refreshing drinks, snacks and ice creams can be ordered too.
The small landscaped garden that borders the pool has a number of colourful sun loungers and parasols.
Relaxing by our pool will be a welcome break in your (busy) holiday schedule.

Our heated outdoor pool is open from April to October.
