La Bihourderie is a farmhouse full of character. Its architecture is typical of the Tourangelle region and it is situated in the midst of a wooded park of 5000 m². Situated in the quietness of the open countryside its history dates back to the 13th century when it was once home to the Bohors who trained knights for jousting tournaments.
In the beginning of the 1990's it was renovated and converted to a bed and breakfast. In 2007 it underwent a second wave of renovations to enlarge the existing guestrooms on the ground floor and to create two new ones on the first floor. It is in these new spacious and comfortable rooms that we invite you to come and taste the pleasures of central France.
La Bihourderie is located in the heart of the Loire valley at only a few kilometres from the major chateaux of the Loire Valley. An ideal location to visit a region rich in culture and heritage beyond compare. You can, at leisure, explore the châteaux (castles) of the Loire, the homes of writers like Balzac, Descartes, Ronsard and Rabelais and also the numerous abbeys and gardens of the Loire Valley. Touraine has several outdoor activities to offer too, numerous cycling trails, canoeing, horseback riding, ULM, helicopter tours etc…
The garden offers you the perfect setting to relax in. Enjoy a game of boules or an afternoon lazing in the hammock or in the garden chairs on the terrace overlooking the sunflower or wheat fields.
A hearty breakfast awaits you every morning, served in our dining room or weather permitting, in the garden. Fresh bread, croissants, homemade jams, fruit, cereals, yoghurts, fruit juice and a choice of hot beverages. Breakfast is served between 8.30am and 9.30am.
As of January 2016, it is possible to reserve a light supper for anybody arriving on foot, bike or for groups of five or more people. Meals must be reserved in advance, and can be served Monday through to Friday. The two-course meal includes a main course and dessert, wine and coffee for 22 euros. It is possible to add a cheese course to the meal (local goats cheese) for a price of 4 euros per person.
There is a large choice of restaurants situated within 15 minutes of the house offering food for all tastes and budgets.
