Restaurants, food & wine

The village of Le Petit Pressigny hosts a Michelin starred restaurant - La Promenade. There are many smaller, yet very acceptable, restaurants in the surrounding villages and there are Vineyards to the North.
Full details can be seen on our Digital Guide Book.


The Indre-et-Loire is situated to the South of the River Loire. From La Richardière many of the areas most interesting Chateaux are within an hours' drive.
We are surrounded by some extremely lovely villages. Our own, Le Petit Pressigny, has a boulangerie, café and a Michelin Star restaurant - "La Promenade".
There are several natural parks and Zoos in the area. The Zoo Parc Beauval is by far biggest and the best with Giant Pandas in the Chinese section.
There are many roads which are relatively traffic free and make excellent cycleways where our guests can travel between villages and there is every possibility of seeing one or more of the wild birds which live in the area.
At the end of the day our grounds offer tranquillity, peace and beautiful countryside views and the heated swimming pool. A great place to relax.
Once guests are booked we offer a FREE Digital Guide Book and Gite Manual.
