LE JEAN BART, LE GRAND-PRESSIGNY
When we first set foot in the village of Le Grand-Pressigny there were two bars, plus a restaurant and a hotel. The one that has been through the most changes is the bar named Le Jean Bart.
The Jean Bart in 2008. The local plumbers had the shop next door.
It had an excellent position in the village square with plenty of space outside for chairs and tables so that people could enjoy the view and the weather at any time of day.
There is no question that to keep a bar like this is hard work and long hours. After a few years the word was out that the lady owner wanted to retire.
