The Loire Valley has a reputation for good food at reasonable prices and a typically french atmosphere. The lunch-time menus are an experience not to be missed, with a good selection to choose from; typically a starter, main course, cheese and dessert for 12€, with wine often included in the price.
There is a plentiful choice of restaurants with fine cuisine and Michelin stars. We are always happy to give recommendations and make a reservation for you.
France is well known for its excellent food markets and the Loire Valley is no exception. There is great pride is selling fresh produce and great enjoyment in taking it home to cook and eat. Have a look at our page about markets in the local area for more details.
There are two excellent market gardens in Parcay les Pins for fresh vegetables and fruit all grown locally. Close by at Vernantes is a well stocked supermarket, and there is a hyper-market at Bourgueil.
We can provide you with free-range eggs and fresh vegetables when in season from our garden.
We also keep a stock of local wines, which we are always happy to talk to you about! See our Loire Valley wines page for more information.
