Discover a gentle way of life

Gastronomic restaurant
Indre et Loire

In the land of François Rabelais, who invented the concept of gastronomy, our gastronomic restaurant in Indre et Loire welcomes you in a modern and colourful setting, bathed in light and in dialogue with nature.

This former 18th century coaching inn, a family heirloom since 1913, was taken over by Odile and Jacques Arrayet in 1989. Named l'Aubinière, the inn quickly became a renowned gastronomic restaurant before becoming a 4-star Hotel & Spa. In our gastronomic restaurant in Indre et Loire, four generations of the art of entertaining have succeeded one another to offer you the best and the sweetness of life in the heart of Touraine.

Chef Jacques Arrayet, never short of ideas, serves up a cocktail of imagination, passion and tradition. The wine cellar, which runs from the restaurant to the lounge, is revealed behind the windows where you can contemplate the nuggets of the region and elsewhere.

The art of entertaining

The Leader

Originally from Reunion, Jacques Arrayet discovered his passion for this profession by watching his mother cook and by enjoying his grandparents' dishes, especially Creole dishes, hence his cooking based on taste and seasonal products.

After graduating from the Biarritz Hotel School, he gained experience in some of the best restaurants in Paris (Intercontinental, Crillon), in Sens (Hôtel de Paris et de la Poste where he met his wife) and in Tours (La Rôtisserie Tourangelle, an institution in the heart of the old town). He worked for 5 years with Chef Duguet, who allowed him to express his art, before becoming owner, with his wife Odile, of the family inn in 1989. Odile, a sommelier, offers a rich and varied wine list, with a special focus on the wines of the Loire Valley.

Let Odile and Jacques Arrayet guide you through your culinary journey at l'Aubinière and help you discover the flavours and aromas of Touraine.
