Very enjoyable stay. Last minute decision on drive from Normandy to Dordogne. Comfortable rooms and great setting. Enjoyed some down time by pond reading. On other reviews' recommendations, we enjoyed the dinner with Florence. Good fun, nice meal and conversation. Would definitely recommend and stay again. Close to Chenonceau, which we toured.

We were graciously welcomed by the owner, Florence, with whom we enjoyed chatting at breakfasts during our stay. Our ground floor room and bathroom were the most spacious of all the places we stayed in France, and the bed and pillows were exceptionally comfortable. We loved the décor of our room, with its meticulous attention to detail. We had welcoming... More

My wife and I stayed at this old converted mill with another couple recently for 2 nights. On one of those nights Florence made a dinner that was a fantastic experience, one to remember! We started with hors d'oeuvres outside with champagne then moved indoors for the dinner. We had an excellent meal and great wine! After dinner Francois, Florence's... More

I stayed here for 3 nights/4 days with my wife in June. I would highly recommend staying here - but know what you are signing up for: - The Ritz this is not. The rooms are rustic and traditional. We didn't want for anything but you're not bathing in luxury either. - If you are spending all day traveling and... More

The location was good and the room was clean. On the negative side, the room was very small and musty. The common area was dark and dank. The grounds needed tending and the breakfast was skimpy and the same choices (which were few) every day. It also did not have a friendly feel about it.

Thank you for taking time for writing a review about your stay at the mill. The content of your review is a surprise for me, because you did not tell me anything about your disappointment when you were here. The mill is an old house, and we decided to respect the spirit of this building when renovating it : thick... More

Moulin du Fief Gentil was the perfect place to stay for a few nights during our long visit to France. Florence was very helpful from the time we reserved our stay until we pulled out of the driveway. She warmly greeted us, even though we were late getting in. She offered many suggestions on where to eat around both Blere... More

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and loved it. It is a beautiful former mill and farmhouse with about 5 acres of land with a beautiful pond with lots of fish and birds.

An adorable, nicely remodeled, historic mill-turned-B&B. Owners M/M Heurtebise are delightful, conscientious, and Florence is an exceptional cook. Her advice on what to visit was perfect for the short time we had in the Loire valley.

My fiance and I spent three nights in July at this wonderful B&B. The owner was helpful by recommending restaurants (our two best meals during our 10-day stay in northern France were within a 10-minute drive of the B&B) and chateaus. As stated in many reviews, the house is actually an old mill that even has a waterfall in the... More
