Scan the various threads in the forum topic, The Tours Route for accommodation info. https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/forums/the-tours-route.47/

Also check out the posts and links in this earlier thread to help you find religious institutions which host pilgrims going towards Tours.

Happy research and Bon chemin!

Bonsoir @K J Nesbittn

Yes, there are a number of religious orders along le Voie de Tours. Some do welcome a dusty pilgrim. Here's where I stayed in 2014:

Tours : Basilique Saint Martin, Benedictine Sisters

Blois : Sœur Franciscaine : Maison Mère St Antoine. 15 Rue Monin 41000, Blois

Meung sur Loire : La Ruche

Orleans : Paroisse St Laurent (Brothers)

Le Pian-Médoc : Sœur de Marie-Joseph et de la Miséricord, Ermitage Lamourous, Le Pian-Médoc.

...and a link to explore:

I live next to the Grand Châtenet section
Here at Saint Jean d'Angely, Charente Maritime the Abby no longer takes pilgrims.
