We spent 3 nights there in August. What can I add that hasn’t already been mentioned already? Not much, other than simply endorsing every other positive contribution made. Marina and Noel are perfect hosts and their two friendly dogs Roxy and Gessie also add their own charm to make you feel at home. The accommodation itself is impeccable – clean, charming and spacious. The garden is absolutely beautiful, and beyond the garden their property extends into several paddocks lined by little canals. I had the pleasure of being taken on a walk by Gessie their beautiful 9 month pup. She kept running ahead then stopping for me to catch up. Eventually we returned on the other side of the canal with Gessie leading the way.
We arrived on a hot Sunday evening naively thinking that we’d find something open for dinner. Not so, but also no problem for Marina and Noel. They insisted that we dine with them by the little stream that passed through their garden. We enjoyed a few glasses of wine with a lovely meal that Marina prepared for us.
We also had plans for hiring bicycles to ride out to the various chateaux. However, Noel suggested we think otherwise, given the distances and the warm weather. The next morning he booked us a car with Avis, then drove us to the Avis depot in Blois where he supervised the inspection of the vehicle as well as organizing a station drop-off 6 days later. To Noel this consideration was just a part of the service.
Every morning Marina had a great spread prepared for our breakfast and Noel would be directing us on his maps (which he kindly loaned us).
It says something about a B&B that when you leave you feel like you are leaving the company of old friends.
Le Moulin des Charmes is simply the best B&B we have ever stayed at.
