The restaurant Fossé Saint Ange is run by Myriam and Cyr Boîtard in a small tower at the Châtellerault entry gate to the ville idéale. It is very popular but only open a few days a week as the proprietors pursue their main calling as fine artists and print-makers.
This summer, and for the first time, they have opened a café at the entrance to the ducal park, maybe 150 metres from home base. It is in the open air under a sunshade and uses as back-of-house one of the symmetrical buildings that form the main gate to the park itself. Heretofore no-one offered café or restaurant facilities in a park that in summertime is full of visitors.
