One of the things we recommend to guests at our gites is to do 'lunch' out as often as they can as you will find good simple local food served up in village restaurants at great prices.You can normally find four courses plus wine for under 12 euros - how can you go wrong? As we were near Saint-Pierre-de-Maille yesterday during our visit to Angles sur l'Anglin our friend Karen suggested we should try the L'Auberge de L'Etoile in the town, where she had eaten before.
For 11.50 euro we had a cold buffet starter, a choice of main courses,cheese and desert plus wine in pleasant surroundings - and it was tasty, They also have a cosy little room for evening 'a la carte'

You may not get down to this pretty little village from your stay in the Loire Valley so I have posted some photographs to give you a taste of it.
