Meals & Dining
We like to make breakfast memorable at La Bihourderie. What’s better than waking up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee and croissants baking in the oven! Start your day off with breakfast served at our dining table or outside on the terrasse in the hot summer months.
Take your pick from 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 8.30am 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.
Evening meal – on site
If you wish to eat at La Bihourderie in the evening two options are available to you.
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.
Evening meals are available by prior arrangement 4 nights a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) for groups of a minimum of 5 people. Feel free to ask us if anybody else has requested meals on the nights you wish to reserve.
We serve home-made family meals which include
- an apéritif
- a main dish
- a dessert or plate of local goat cheese
- local wine and tea/coffee.
Price : 25€ per person, 15€ for children 10 yrs old and under

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 La Bihourderie.
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 5 PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) local goat cheeses (Sainte-Maure-de-Touraine, Selles-sur-Cher, Valençay, Pouligny- Saint-Pierre, Crotin of Chavignol), then finish off your meal with a nougat of Tours for dessert (ground almonds on a shortbread crust).
The red wines of Bourgueil, Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil, Touraine and Chinon will accompany the rillettes and rillons or the roasted Géline (local black feathered hen) while the white wines will bring out the best of a filet of pike perch or a tray of goat cheeses.
