We stayed at this B&B on the recommendation of family and were not disappointed. The B&B is housed in an old mill that adds an element of charm not found many places. Breakfasts were delicious and varied. Our room opened up to a backyard oasis and there is a guest lounge available. Florence spoke perfect English and was a wonderful... More

This charming B and B, run by English speaking Florence Heurtebise, sits on a lovely property and offers quaint, rustic and wonderfully comfortable rooms; beamed ceilings, all bath en suite. If your hostess offers you a dinner to share with other guests, Say Yes!. She served a three course home cooked meal that rivals restaurants in the Loire Valley, and... More

Florence is a wonderful hostess. Not many places offer a waterfall view from the breakfast table. This old mill makes a unique place to stay. The breakfast was delicious and Blere is centrally located to visit the Chateaus in the Loire Valley. You will love your visit to this B and B in Blere.

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.

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.

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.
