Eating, drinking and Sleeping

With the recent opening of the autoroute to Tours, nearby Vierzon has become the new crossroad of France. However, the region remains something of gastronomic wilderness. The options are to head north and into the Sologne, or within half an hour south of the two appellations you can be in Issoudun where at least there are a couple of choices to eat and sleep.


Restaurant - Le Firmament
Route de Vierzon
T: + 33 2 48 51 30 35
F: + 33 2 48 51 35 11

Le Firmament is the only dining option in the village. You'll find it situated on the road to Brinay. As well as a decent lunchtime hostelry, Le Firmament doubles up as a function venue. The food is classic Berrichone coupled with some French staples, such as confit de canard. The wine list is made up mostly of local producers. Perfectly decent, even if the service can be a little slow and chaotic. (Last dined: 06/10)


Bar-Restaurant - Auberge des As
Le Bourg
T: + 33 2 48 51 08 65
This typical bar doubles up as a workers retreat where it serves a no choice Menu du Jour each lunchtime. Basic and serviceable. (Last dined: 06/10)

Gîte - La Chagnat
Gérard et Catherine Bignonneau
T: + 33 2 48 48 00 18
This renowned grower in Quincy has two self catering cottages available for rent on their farm. Isolated at the back of the commune, the property is surrounded by cereal plains. 

Gîte - Le Tremblay
Jean Tatin et Chantal Wilk
T: + 33 2 48 75 20 09
Literally next to the Bigonneau homestead, is that of fellow vignerons, Jean Tatin and Chantal Wilk. The self catering cottage here occupies one corner of an ancient Berrichone farm. 

Gîte - Château de Brinay
Jacques et Stéphanie Beaudon
Route de Quincy
T: + 33 2 48 51 38 31
