Il faut faire Le Detour dans l’avenir
Work is steadily advancing on the renovation of the old Le Maréchal restaurant on the eastern outskirts of Bléré in the little hameau of Thoré on the D976 some 400 metres east of the roundabout at the end of the Bléré bypass. The new café/restaurant will be called Le Detour. New floors are being laid and the upstairs transformed into an apartment. The new proprietors, Philippe and Laurence, are hoping to open the bar perhaps around 10th January 2009 with the restaurant opening a couple of months later in mid-March. Philippe is having intensive English lessons and hopes to greet his future British clients in their own language.
