Eating Out

Whether you prefer a lunch time 'Menu du Jour' or a full gourmet meal, there are many excellent restaurants within a few miles of St Chartres, serving seasonal produce from the Poitou-Charente region and catering for most culinary preferences. This area is known particularly for its goats’ cheeses and locally grown melons, strawberries and asparagus, as well as for its Parthenaise beef. We can personally recommend the following selection:

LES SAVEURS DE LA DIVE - LA GRIMAUDIERE.

Excellent value lunch restaurant just a few minutes drive away, frequented by truckers (always a good sign!) and always busy. Buffet starter, 2 choices of main course, cheese board and several dessert choices, all for 12 euros!

HOTEL DU COLIGNY – MONTCONTOUR

Situated on the main street of this little town, just 5 mins away. Salad bar starter, ‘Plat du Jour’, cheese board and dessert buffet, accompanied by large jug of wine. Tel: 05 49 98 63 98
