We booked this B&B on the recommendation of some friends and were pleased with our experience. The integration of the historic mill into the facility is remarkable. Our room was large and comfortable, breakfast typically "French", and Florence works hard at making you feel at home. As mentioned Blere is a perfect central location for exploring the Loire Valley Chateaux... More

We spent a night at this bed and breakfast. Overall, it is a very nice spot. The room was OK, clean and calm, even though the bed was not firm enough in my opinion. The place itself is charming and well-located. The owners are friendly. Breakfast was also good.

The tourist office found this one for us. She called about six places and they were all booked so when she said this one was available, we jumped on it since my husband had been driving all day and he was exhausted. The last thing he wanted to do was to go B&B hopping. The room was large no complaints... More

Thank you for taking time to write a review about your stay at the Mill. I am happy that you appreciated the location. Our house is a 16th century old mill. For the guest rooms, we have preferred to keep the flavor of a building with a history going back many hundred of years, and have decided to have raw... More

I have stayed at the Moulin twice now, in 4 years, with friends. After hectic days of driving and touring, this hotel is a respite, due to the beautiful natural setting of the old mill, and a pleasure, thanks to its friendly hosts, M and Mme Heurtebise. It's a perfect "central location" to visit many chateaux in all directions. Both... More

While planning our trip to France, we struggled with where to stay in the Loire Valley. We finally decided on Moulin du Fief Gentil, and we could not have been happier with our choice! Mmw. Heurtebise was an incredibly gracious host; she spoke very good english and made sure that we felt comfortable and welcomed. The dinner we had in... More

We spent two nights there while exploring the Loire. One of the best travel experiences we have ever had. The B&B is easy to find in Blere (with or without GPS) and is convenient to several chateaus, particularly Chenonceau. Our room was very nicely appointed, and the grounds are lovely (pond in back, glass window overlooking an inner waterfall, etc.)... More

We had a wonderful two days at Moulin du Fief Gentil. Sitting by the pond was so peaceful. We were lucky enough to have a dinner prepared by Madame Fleurance Heurtebise that we shared with her husband and two other guests. One of the highlights of our trip. Blere is centrally located with easy access many chateaux and was set... More

Last July, we had the great pleasure to stay at the Moulin du Fief Gentil. We didn’t really know what to expect as it was our first stay in a “Chambre d’hôte”. We were so pleasantly surprised! Blere is a very easy drive from Paris and it is a great location to visit the châteaux. The moulin and its surroundings... More

About a week ago we had the good fortune to stay in Blere at the Moulin du Fief Gentil. Madame Fleurance Heurtebise was an excellent hostess. We had a rental car from EuropCar that we had reserved and picked up in Caen, France across from the train station. We picked it up on a late Friday afternoon. We needed to... More

My wife and I stayed for three nights in the Clementine room and had a wonderful time. The room, B&B and grounds are all lovely, and Florence was very helpful. We had great weather while we were there, so we were able to enjoy the patio and pond in back. The location couldn't be better for touring the various chateaus... More
