We have stayed at the Domaine de Mestre´ a number of times over the past and 20 years and in spite of minor flaws, have been totally enchanted by the place - the beauty of the setting and its authenticity. We have watched it's evolution and now the very beautiful and elegant restaurant, La Table de Mestre´which opened this spring. In July we had dinner there and today we had lunch there. We sat in one of the two dining rooms with large open windows overlooking a terrace (possible to eat there as well) and garden with 200 year old trees. We were served by a charming and very helpful English speaking hostess. Both our meals were delicious, beautifully presented and an excellent value - 3 course lunch/21 euros. 3 course dinner/29 euros. Most of the vegetables are fresh from their garden - true to its ancient history as the fortified farm for the nearby L'Abbaye de Fontevraud. The cheese is made on site from the milk of their cows!
