“warm hosts and beautiful B&B”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We wanted to cycle the Loire but made Blois our base from which we visited the Chateaux which dot the countryside. Blois made an ideal location as a "base" though I can see the merits of moving around to different towns.

Nevertheless, we settled on Le Clos Pasquier for just under 5 days looking for some relaxing accommodation that was more typically French and were well rewarded. The plus points:

1. The accommodation has been beautifully and tastefully refurbished
2. Its spotless whilst not losing that charming element/atmosphere
3. The breakfasts were fantastic with something new each day (lovely change to normal B&Bs)
4. Claire et Laurent went well beyond being the normal hosts and were genuinely interested in making our stay enjoyable (and complete) with no end to recommendations, suggestion and helping to organise visits or even our re-routed train journey.

Ultimately, it was the accommodation, breakfasts and the warm hospitality that convinced us of a 5-star rating. If I pass through Blois / Loire Valley again I will be sure to use Le Clos Pasquier as my accommodation (and I travel weekly so I know about hotels and accommodation).

We stayed with Claire and Laurent for only two nights but that was possibly the best experience on our journey. This B&B is truly a gem and you can feel in every little detail that Claire and Laurent just love to be hosts. We enjoyed our spacious comfy garden facing room, Claires absolutely delicious breakfast as well as Laurents charming insiders' tips. Did you know that the property ones was built for... Go there and find out yourself.

We stayed two nights here touring the Loire valley. We were greeted by the owners who were welcoming, friendly and very helpful. The room was clean, spacious, peaceful and comfortable. The breakfast was exceptional (home made jams and bread, local cheese, fresh eggs and home-made sweet delicacies - you don't need lunch after this!). It's a good location - a short drive to Blois centre where we had a fabulous meal in a restaurant recommended to us by the owners. We would recommend staying here.

We had one night (upstairs room). This is one of the best B&Bs we've ever experienced...beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, with Perrier and chocolates waiting. Modern French country living with the restored architectural details of an old house. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious.

In France for 5 weeks, we drove along the Loire from Saumur to this lovely luxury B&B run by delightful hosts Claire et Laurent, who were extremely helpful in both French & English. We stayed 3 nights in the 'Suite du Jardin' on ground level with terrace with table and chairs in "our own" manicured walled garden, where we were served afternoon tea with home-made fruitcake on arrival, and things just got better ...

Beautifully yet simply decorated room with trompes d'oile features, and ancient solid exposed beams, plenty of space: large firm comfy bed in large room, large fluffy towels, good shower. Huge gourmet breakfast feasts fit for royalty, and many extra little touches (like chocolates on pillows, complimentary bottles of still & sparkling water).

Our niece from Paris was very comfortable also upstairs in 'Porc-épic' (porcupine) chambre. She's planning a return visit for a romantic get-away with her husband in the near future.
(Car needed as it is a little way south-west from the old town, and anyway the nearby châteaux are best reached by car.)

Room Tip: If stairs are an issue, pay a bit extra and choose a ground floor suite.

We arrived from Australia for a three week adventure in France with Blois as our base for the chateau region. Relying on Trip Advisor reviews and a Google search, we booked 5 nights at Le Clos Pasquier and were not disappointed. Our hosts Claire and Laurent welcomed us on arrival with dinner booked at a local restaurant (as requested), an elegant room with hotel quality mattresses and stunning spacious bathroom and next morning a sumptuous home-cooked breakfast including rice puddings, mini creme caramels and baked apple puffs.

Having read a few comments from earlier postings, we would like to suggest that perhaps the French are more likely to offer shower gel, so if your preference is for soap then perhaps best to BYO. That said, our experience at Le Clos Pasquier revealed hosts who were only too happy to oblige when asked for anything, but were otherwise discreet and unobtrusive. Thank you Claire and Laurent for a wonderful start to our holiday.

After departing Paris, forgetting our guidebook for touring chateaus of the Loire Valley, we impetuously stopped in Blois to get our bearings (and more maps). Upon the advice of all we met, we decided to stay overnight and needed accommodation. We were fortunate enough to be referred into staying at Le Clos Pasquier where we stayed in a stunning suite with a great bed, beautiful linens, terrific bathroom supplies and marvelous helpful hosts! They suggested and booked our dinner that evening at a supurb restaurant on the river front and topped off our stopover with a substantial breakfast in a beautiful sunny common room. The homemade, locally sourced breads, jams and cheeses made it most notable. We would recommend this fine B&B to all for any occasion!
