Brasserie and terrace

Perfect for a casual lunch, get-together with pals or to raise a glass and rub shoulders with the local fisherman and vineyard owner. A chilled glass of Sancerre or local beer on the sun-drenched terrace is heaven on earth.

Discover why the locals want to keep us their best kept secret: the best coffee bar this side of Paris – and the best, quintessentially French bar too. Enjoy a well-earned beer or a cheeky glass of wine while admiring our motoring wall of fame.

Holiday bliss!


Petit dejeuner – best meal of the day.  Especially at Hotel de France.  A spread to fire up the cylinders whether you’re heading out for a day’s cycling, a leisurely potter around the brocante markets – or stopping over on a business trip.
