Meals & Dining
We like to make breakfast memorable at La Bihourderie and that starts with waking up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee and croissants baking in the oven! We serve breakfast served at our dining table or outside on the terrasse in the hot summer months.
We offer a choice of fresh breads, brioche, croissants, home-made jams, fresh fruit, home-made yogurts and a choice of cereals. We also serve ham and cheese if you prefer a savory breakfast.
You can also choose from a selection of fresh fruit juices & teas as well as coffee and hot chocolat.
Breakfast is served between 8.00am and 9.30am. If you need an earlier start we can leave a light breakfast for you in the guest lounge. You can then get up at a time that is convenient for you and help yourself to what has been left for you to eat and drink before leaving.
Breakfast is included in the price of your room.
Two options are available to you, either on site or off site. Choose which suits you best.
On site ….
Don’t want to eat out twice the same day? Travelling with young children? Watching your budget?
Why not make the most of the guest kitchen allowing you to heat up/cook a simple meal. Equipped with a microwave, two electric hobs and a fridge, the kitchen will allow you to save time and money.
With two local farmers markets each week (Wednesday and Saturday) and 4 supermarkets within 10 minutes of the house, it is easy to buy fresh produce or pre-cooked and bring them back to eat at the house.
In the winter enjoy the heat from the wood burner and in the summer take in the sunsets while eating your dinner outside on the terrasse.
Off site ….
If you would like to taste the specialties of the Touraine region of France several excellent restaurants are within a 5-15 minute drive from us. Whether you would like to eat in a quiet French village on the edge of the Indre river or in the medieval town of Loches, we are more than happy to advise you of the best addresses to suit your tastes and budget.
Enjoy the rillettes and rillons of Tours, the Géline Lochoise (a black feathered hen) or treat yourself to a plate composed of local goat cheeses (Sainte-Maure-de-Touraine, Selles-sur-Cher, Valençay, Pouligny- Saint-Pierre, Crotin of Chavignol), then finish off your meal with a slice of nougat of Tours for dessert (ground almonds on a shortbread crust).
