Located in the former kitchens of the chateau, the Jean 2 restaurant offers dishes made with local, organic and artisanal products, accompanied by natural wines. It has a panoramic terrace with a view of the Loire.
Named Jean 2 in homage to John II of Chambes – close advisor to Charles VII – who had the chateau built in the 15th century – the dining cellar is divided into two atmospheres: a vaulted, cosy, intimate and relaxed room with a library corner to devour a comic book or an art book, a novel or a collection of poetry, in complete serenity and a terrace, for summer days, with its roof top overlooking the confluence of the Vienne and the Loire.

As for the cuisine, Jean 2 offers a variety of slates made with local products: organic or artisanal pork and cheese, organic burgers and soups, accompanied by a glass of natural wine.

On the decoration side, the music inspires the place
On the walls, collector vinyl covers remind us that the Art & Language movement – whose avant-garde works are presented in the chateau – has collaborated on several albums by the psychedelic rock group Red Crayola.
