Restaurant: Saumur!

So coming into the wonders of the Loire river and my belle France,continuing our road warrior trips and enjoying the best of the country. There have been many but I am choosing the most memorable times with my family.  We came to Saumur!

I have written on Saumur wonders before but let me give you a brief introduction to the town here ok.  Saumur is a sub-prefecture of the department of Maine-et-Loire, No. 49 in the Pays de la Loire region. It is particularly known for his cavalry school, castle and wines.

Saumur is located in the natural region and former division of the province of Anjou. Nearby towns are Thouars (Deux-Sèvres), Loudun (Vienne), Angers and Baugé (Maine-et-Loire), Chinon, and  Tours (Indre-et-Loire). The town of Saumur has five associated towns since February 1, 1973: the city of Saumur itself in the center (on the left bank of the Loire and the right bank of its tributary Le Thouet), Dampierre sur Loire in the south-east ( on the left bank of the Loire and on the northwestern half of the island of Souzay which it shares with the neighboring commune of Souzay-Champigny) Bagneux in the south-west (on the left banks of the Thouet then of the Loire Saint-Hilaire-Saint-Florent to the west (on the left bank of the Loire and northwest of Bagneux on the outside of the west ring road, and including the village of Terrefort and the aerodrome of Saumur – Saint -Florent), and Saint-Lambert-des-Levées to the north (on the right bank of the Loire). Saumur is located in the heart of the Loire-Anjou-Touraine Regional Nature Park, of which it is the largest town.

And now to our fav brasserie in town, again as we do just without reservations just pop in as in your house, the real French welcome with real people, and real food. Enjoy it

The Café Brasserie La Bourse, 1 place de la Bilange , Saumur.  It is an institution in Saumur with its large terrace. Depending on the affluence at lunch, we will be more or less quickly serve and when a big service is on the way, we will cut a little attention. Like all institutions, it must constantly give the desire to return, so the card is renewed according to the seasons and desires of the chef. Traditional Brasserie Saumurois, at the foot of the theater and a few meters from the Loire river, with magnificent views worth it to take a walk along after eating. La Bourse has a large capacity, outside, on the large terrace, as indoors.


It is fast but above all we were impressed by the service of the team. They are fast, efficient with a good memory and communicate with each other to provide water, bread, etc. A nice menu and value for money very interesting indeed. They exchange their role with amazing dexterity. All with a smile always shown; we will return!
