In all instances not looking for Michelin star restaurants primarily because of price. Have dined at many in the past, just sort of burned out on "fine dining" for the moment. Trying to find lunch and dinner places maxing out at €50 pp not including wine.Less expensive the better so long as the food doesn't take to much of a hit.
1: Staying about 7 miles outside of Epernay, some 15 or so from Reims. Everything I've been looking at looks so formal, maybe that's just the photos. Any Ferme, country dining that's good? Open to suggestions.
2: Driving from Epernay to Tours, via Orleans. Know of a good breakfast or lunch spot.
3: Driving from Tours to Le Puy Notre Dame. Option of going a couple of directions, thru Azay-Le-Rideau and Chinon or ? Any suggestions re lunch options?
4: Staying in a house a few kn from small village of Le Puy Notre Dame. Le Puy is a few km from Montreuil be lay and Doue-la-Fontaine. Will have a car so can access villages around the area. Probably don't want to go beyond an hour drive in any direction. I know Saumur and Anger are about a 20 and 45 minute drive respectively. Think I had read on chow about some place in or near Candes St-Martin.
5: Staying in Eguisheim for 4-5 days. Will not have a car, it is a few miles south of Colmar. Would prefer to stay out of Colmar unless there something outstanding food/price wise. Want to avoid larger cities until in Paris at end of trip. May bike during the day or cab. Any lunch or diner recs appreciated.
