A charming village between Tours and Blois in Indre et Loire, and a contemporary cuisine which invites you on a gourmet journey of discovery! With its typical Loire Valley charm and atmosphere, and just 10 minutes from Amboise, L’Aubinière is not to be missed.
Chef Jacques Arrayet, never short of ideas, shows his love of fine food in an imaginative cuisine which draws on the best of tradition. Working with quality produce, he offers sophisticated re-imaginings of meat and fish dishes, drawing inspiration from the flavours and fragrances of the vegetable garden. Enjoy your meal among the stylish interiors of the restaurant room, or on the terrace overlooking the garden.
It is the ideal setting to sample the chef’s gourmet cuisine and the Loire Valley wines, of which he is one of the most enthusiastic champions.

The wine cellar, which runs through the restaurant room and lounge, is kept behind glass, so that guests can contemplate the fine local vintages, as well as wines from further afield.
A wide choice of wines from Loire and Touraine in particular (Vouvray, Montlouis…) have been selected by Odile Arrayet, who trained as a sommelier.Discover her talent for combining dishes and wines at special taster nights.
