If you can’t get invited to lunch by the château owners, your appetite can be pleasantly satisfied at this nearby excellent-value inn. It offers fixed-price menus of regional specialties such as Muscadet-infused rabbit terrine with pear compote; local free-range Touraine Géline chicken with pommes darphin (thick potato pancake), topped with a tomato caviar; and for “dessert” Ste. Maure goat cheese or Sologne strawberry melba. While it’s a far cry from the luxurious bedrooms of the castle, the St-Hubert offers economic lodging with 20 conservatively decorated rooms for 72€ to 81€ for a double.
