Louis XIII, our gourmet restaurant
The delights of traditional French cooking
In the art of French living, gastronomy holds an essential place! At the Louis XIII restaurant this holds true, both by the setting provided and by the quality of its cuisine!
It is called the Briffaut dining room after the name of the pond at the Château de Beauvois. For lunch and dinner, you are welcomed into this beautiful room with its high ceilings, white marble floor, and large windows overlooking the terrace and grounds. A setting both warm and bright with a beautiful period fireplace, in the hearth of which crackles a nice flame in the winter.
Weather permitting, the large terrace allows enjoying the sunny days with stunning views out over the French gardens. Large flag stones, and flower beds... A superb setting in which to enjoy the cuisine of the Louis XIII.

An exceptional wine cellar
For all tastes and all occasions
As a nod to its history, the cellar is located in the former quarry used to supply the construction of the Château de Beauvois towers. This is where the wine was kept at an ideal temperature and humidity, away from envious eyes.
Today, change of scenery: the cellar has been transformed into a superb showcase in mahogany and gilded bronze, can be viewed directly from the Louis XIII. Regional and grands crus wines meet in optimal conditions of conservation: including those of Saumur-Champigny, Bourgueil, Bordeaux, Burgundy, and champagne...
