Lunches on our Spring Classic Loire Valley Cycling Breaks

March 10, 2015 by Alison Shawcroft No Comment

We have a little availability on our Loire Valley Cycling Breaks but with the Spring season approaching fast we wont have spaces for much longer!

On the Loire Valley Cycling Breaks we welcome you to the Loire Valley in France on a Bed & Breakfast basis.  Our Loire Valley cycle routes then enable you to discover amazing places to take in a French lunch as part of your day.

Throughout France these lunches offer outstanding value for money.  For around €14 you will get three courses, a carafe of wine and coffee.  You can then carry on your cycling and all you’ll need in the evening is some baguette and cheese!

Last week we did exactly that and ate out at one of our favourite restaurants, Le Bouff’tard in Hommes, Indre et Loire.

We have a 45kms route that takes in this restaurant, as well as extending to take in the Chateau at Champchevrier if you want.

I took in the Quiche to start and then had the Joué de Boeuf – a stewed cut of beef.

We took a carafe of Red Chinon and I was enjoying myself so much I forgot to photograph the Tirimasu I had for dessert!  Sorry about that.

Rounded off with coffee the total bill came to €26 for two of us. Freshly cooked and delicious this is a bargain.

Take the meal slowly and cycling in the afternoon is a pleasure – it’s why we cycle in France!
