Could anyone confirm the status of this aire de service on the A28?

Aire Sarthe Touraine 72500 Dissay Sous Courcillon

The website shows enter image description here

naming the restaurant as Flunch.

The website of the operator specifies that this aire exists, however Google Maps is most insistent that it is "permanently closed".

While Google Maps refers only to Flunch, if this is closed then it makes me doubt the veracity of the operator's website.

I would very much like to know if I can rely on there at least being a coffee available.

  • Google says that flunch, which seems to be some restaurant, is closed, not the service area itself – blackbird Jul 29 '16 at 19:29
  • So far as I can see Google says nothing about the service area; but my concern is that Flunch is referenced from the operator's website, if that is inaccurate then can I count on any other aspect being open? This seems to be the only option for food and fueld between Le Mans and quite a bit south of Tours. – djna Jul 29 '16 at 19:55
  • It's Sarthe, not Sartre... – fkraiem Jul 29 '16 at 20:02
  • @fkraiem it's even misspelled on the website ! Good catch – blackbird Jul 29 '16 at 20:07
  • Couldn't find that branch on Flunch's website by the way, try calling the listed phone number ? – blackbird Jul 29 '16 at 20:10

It's definitely still there. Busy but fine. Cafe, sandwiches and fuel.

    Can you expand a bit more ? Were you there, how long ago ? Or did you just read this online somewhere ? – blackbird Jul 31 '16 at 13:45

The official site states that "Certains restaurants flunch apparaissent comme fermés ce jour sur Google. Il s’agit d’un incident technique, vos restaurants flunch sont bien ouverts et vous accueilleront avec plaisir pour un moment flunchant" ("Some Flunch restaurants arrear as closed on Google today. This is due to a a technical incident. Your Flunch restaurants are open and will welcome you with pleasure for a «flunchy» moment") Screenshot from the site

The restaurant does not appear when I look with their search engine but it may be a consequence of the same incident.

  • Thank you very much. I am now determined to ensure that I experience un moment flunchant ;-) – djna Aug 2 '16 at 21:40
