Local friends recommended this resto and we went for a lunch. Had the lunchtime "Retour du Marché" menu for 19,50€ which was very good. Started with an interesting amuse bouche, then lovely homemade paté following by steak frites! The owner/waiter was friendly and funny, chiding...More

Our last night in Amboise before heading towards Paris, we booked a table at Auberge de Launay on the recommendation of our hotel. A quick call secured a table and the assurance that my wife's vegetarian needs would be catered for with ease. This is...More

After driving north from Bourges, we decided to have dinner here our first night staying in Onzain. The restaurant is nice, though we were in the less attractive back room. The service was very slow, disappointingly so; however, the food was good. In particular, the...More

The Auberge de Launay is a 3 chimney Logis situated at Limeray near to Amboise only metres away from the banks of the Loire. You will be seduced by this XVIIIth century restored farmhouse, transformed into a 15 room inn. Our establishment is ideal for visiting the chateaux of the Loire, in particular the Clos Lucé, which housed Leonardo da Vinci. During your stay at the Auberge de Launay, do not miss a stroll in the garden while waiting for a delicious dinner at the restaurant of the hotel.
