Auberge du Port des Roches

Luché Pringé, Sarthe

This pretty auberge is Valérie’s pride and joy and the terrace is full of roses. Come for the peace, the châteaux, the scrumptious meals...


12 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 3


If you like the idea of idling with an evening drink by the slow green water, watching out for the odd fish, looking forward to an exceptionally good dinner, this is the place for you. Not grand, not the Loire – the Loir is a sweet, lovely and unsung river – but we can hear you saying: “Oh, what a pretty spot”. Valérie and Thierry, who have been here for almost two decades, are young, very friendly, though a touch shy, and full of enthusiasm for their auberge. The lively little restaurant, which seats about 50 people in two rooms, and the riverside terrace heavy with roses and sweet-smelling climbers, are the star turns here, though Valérie is also justly proud of the effort she has put into the bedrooms and the way everything sparkles. Rooms are not large but done up in fresh colours with white bedcovers. Those at the back overlook the courtyard, those at the front face the Loir, double glazing separates you from the small road that runs past and peace reigns at night. This is a quiet, very French place to stay, within easy reach of the châteaux. All round superb value – and plenty of choice for vegetarians.

Delightful little hotel and the best meal of our whole 3 week trip to France! We enjoyed our apéritif by the river although sadly not warm enough for dinner on the terrace. Quite hard to find as village is not on any map we could find and satnav was a bit dodgy!


This is a delightful little Auberge and it is exceptionally well managed by the owners. Our room was comfortable, well decorated and spotlessly clean. We were made to feel very welcome. The food in the restaurant is really very good. we will definitely be returning. One to bookmark!


So pleased with our visit that we stopped on the way home too. Supper is worth booking, and as it was so hot, the chairs by the river Loir were so welcome. We sat in the shade with the dog, quietly reading until supper was served. Okay, the room was a little small but exceptionally clean. The staff are very thoughtful and courteous and the owners could not be kinder. Well worth a stop over on the way or stopping on the way home.
