Restaurants

It is possible to book table d’hôtes (diner) with us or cook for yourself in our guest kitchen (see our accommodation page), but there are also quite a few nice restaurants near La Villonnière b&b. Here is a list compiled from restaurants we have visited ourselves or heard good stories about from our guests.

Please note that restaurants are often closed on public holidays, except for some in Argenton-sur-Creuse. And you can still get a pizza from the pizza vending machine in Le Verger (5 minutes’ drive).
