TABLE D'HÔTE/EVENINGMEALS

Table d’hote/evening meals

The table d’hôte dinners in the summer are for us the nicest evenings of the week. We start with an extensive aperitif and then a main course and dessert with wine and at the end, coffee or tea. We always ask our guests in the morning if they want to participate and what kind of food they like and are not particularly fond of. On this basis we compose the menu. We get the impression that our guests enjoy eating at our place, as at the end of the dinner it is just a short walk to their bedroom. Small children can eat in advance or join in with the parents, this is something we always discuss with the parents. For those who are not that familiar with the French language, the French menus are not the easiest to understand, so you can easily end up with some unusual French delicacies on your plate. We don’t serve those kind of things at our Table d’hôte dinners. A minimum of 4 participants is required. When this is not the case we postphone our table d’hôte dinner to the next scheduled evening. In general we propose table d’hôte on Monday and Thursday evening.

As we live in the middle of two wine regions, the wine is something which does not go unmentioned at our table d’hôtes dinners. For those who drive around in Beauvoir-sur-Mer, you will see some small vineyards in peoples gardens. Particularly the fruity Rosé from the Vendée (Fiefs Vendéen) we really like, as well as the white wine from the Pays Vignoble Nantais (Muscadet, Grosplant and Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine).

Chambres d’hôtes are not well known as a holiday concept to everyone. In France they call it Bed & Breakfast à la francaise. The difference from the English Bed & Breakfast is, however, that in France it is also possible for the guests to have dinner at night with the owners (the hôtes). There are a few rules from the French government to ensure that chambres d’hôtes do not compete too much with the local restaurants. Only guests who spend the night can join in on the table d’hôtes dinners. The owners have to participate in the dinner as well, and everybody is sitting therefore at one large table. The maximum number of guests is 15 persons. There is only a “menu of the day” (no menu cards) and the price must include wine and coffee.
