La Table des Fées

Restaurant with local food and home-grown vegetables

We grow our own vegetables in our castle farm and we make our own Chinon Wine. As we have our own products, we know exactly where they come from and their quality. We get our meat and cheese from local farmers, in order to offer to our visitors simple, fresh and healthy food. We do this, so that local farmers get the most income, so that we understand excactly where our food is from and to help our local agriculture. This is typically part of our Sustainability Program.


The terrace restaurant offers a breathtaking view of the majestic medieval keep. In the heart of the courtyard of the outbuildings, enjoy a lunch (or a snack for tea time : the tea room is open during French school holidays) in the charming atmosphere of the combination of stone and vegetable garden, wedding of mineral and vegetable.
