Gentle lifestyle in the Loire Valley

Our restaurant “La Creusille” is ideally built on the side of the river Loire, along the route to visit the “Châteaux” of Blois, Chambord, Cheverny, Chaumont-sur-Loire, Amboise… right on the edge of the Sologne region, with a beautiful view on the main town of Blois, the centre of which is just across the bridge, 200 yards away.

Once you have passed our traditional gate, in the Solognot style, you are inside a typical ancient courtyard not much changed since the Creusille was a farm for vegetable growers along the river Loire, and has been an “auberge at least since the 19th Century along the road following the South bank of the river.

You can eat inside or on the “terrasse” in the courtyard, with its small flower garden, and taste dishes elaborated around local produce.

Our restaurant can also welcome groups from 10 to 70 people in our 2 reception rooms.

Please contact us to discover our different choices of menus.


Because we are in Blois and so close to the port of La Creusille, we offer easy access and parking space for buses and coaches, right at the centre of the Châteaux of the Loire, with the main ones of Chambord and Cheverny to the East and Chaumont and Amboise to the West. Passengers can be dropped off in front of our restaurant and the coach can park 50 m further on the river bank, in front of the port itself, where the view on the monuments and the whole town of Blois is unmissable.
