A gourmet restaurant in the Loire Valley

La Maison d’À Côté is both a two-Michelin-star gourmet restaurant and a hotel located in the Loire Valley, focusing on modernity and elegance. The chef, Christophe Hay, also the owner of the hotel, and his brigade will offer you a truly delightful experience. Christophe Hay has chosen to favour products from the Loire Valley: at La Maison d’À Côté, ingredients follow the seasons, from the Chef’s garden itself, the Loire river and the surrounding forests.

At La Maison d’À Côté, the garden is cultivated in permaculture, with a zero chemical, pesticide or insecticide bias. Christophe Hay invites you to discover or rediscover different varieties of rare beans, oca from Peru and many tubers. As of May 1st, his restaurant in the Loire Valley only uses vegetables from its own garden.

Your hotel close to the many castles in the Loire Valley

For the most perfect stay in the Loire Valley, our hotel and restaurant will help you combine the discovery of some of the region gastronomy through revisited à la carte courses and menus, and a memorable stay in one of our eight rooms and four suites.

Enjoy a very peaceful stay: with the whole family or only for the two of you, you will be able to make nice and long walks along the Loire river or in the forest. You can also bike from Blois to our hotel in the Loire Valley: the château de Chambord, but also Cheverny and Amboise are a few minutes’ drive away from La Maison d’À Côté.

La Maison d’À Côté and its chef, Christophe Hay, can be proud of their two Michelin stars, a rare and precious distinction. In the Loir-et-Cher, and more precisely in Montlivault, between Blois and Chambord, the restaurant invites you to discover an inspired menu, featuring local products and Loire gastronomy.

A Michelin restaurant closed to the Loire River

Choosing La Maison d’À Côté means entering Christophe Hay’s world and his love of regional products and creativity. An example? The very large vegetable garden created by the chef himself: hundreds of different species are cultivated here, from goji berries to vegetables and tubers to rare beans. For Christophe Hay, who received his second Michelin star in 2019, the product itself is what matters most. So much so that the fish served in his restaurant only come from the river: the Loire Valley has a lot to offer, and the chef works with passionate fishermen to sublimate carp, perch or catfish.

A restaurant with two Michelin stars near Blois

A few minutes’ drive from Blois, La Maison d’À Côté is both a gourmet Michelin-starred restaurant for locals, but also for the many tourists visiting the castles located in the Loire Valley.

In La Maison d’À Côté’s restaurant, the kitchen is open to the dining room. And, much to the surprise of people discovering Christophe Hay’s restaurant and hotel for the first time: it is the brigade and the chef who come to the tables in order to describe their creations. Something new in a Michelin-starred restaurant, inviting dialogue and enriching experiences. On the menu, dishes have become signature over time, around Sologne wagyu beef, Chambord carp or Mallard pithiviers.

Sologne caviar, if it remains little known, surprises more than a guest. For a unique experience at a Michelin-starred restaurant and hotel, book your dinner (for two) at the Chef’s Table, on the kitchen counter. A magical moment at the very heart of the kitchen.
