Start with a Buffet

Some of the restaurants we use on our tours offer a self-service buffet. You can help yourself to a range of charcuterie (cured meats), salads and condiments. It is very common to encounter the buffet in relais (French truckstop restaurants) but it is becoming less and less common for the buffet selection to be made in house or by local artisans. Sadly even in France, restaurants are resorting to bulk packed centrally sourced dishes.

Naturally, we choose restaurants that offer tasty, well presented and freshly prepared buffet dishes. The buffets are so generous and delicious it's easy to pile too much on your plate and you hardly need the equally generous main course, the cheese and the little touch of sweetness in a creme caramel or an ile flottante to finish.

If you want to experience good quality local restaurants, email us and we will take you somewhere friendly and comfortable that you might not find on your own. Don't forget, if you book and pay for your 2012 tour before the end of May you receive a 10% discount.
