Le Moulin des Charmes
Ranked #3 of 20 Blois B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 4, 2012

If you are looking for an idyllic setting and attentive, friendly hosts, then Le Moulin des Charmes is for you. Our room overlooked the gardens and splendid doesn't do it justice. It was spacious and beautiful and after a wonderful night's sleep a truly delicious breakfast awaited us with fresh and homemade being the operative words for what we were served. We couldn't manage eggs and bacon which Marina was ever ready to prepare as there was already so much on the breakfast table! We stayed 3 nights and wished it could have been longer. The yearly Bric a Brac fair held in their grounds was an added attraction. After a day of sightseeing, to return and sit in the superb gardens with some local wine was simply perfect. The bar/restaurant opposite was fine and really convenient for our evening meals.

Room Tip: There was only the one room left when we booked - the family room, which had a separate bathroom jus...

Just returned from a thoroughly pleasant three night stay at this beautiful B and B which is well situated for sight-seeing around the Loire. The property itself is completely charming and our room, with its own entrance door and magnificent bathroom, was gorgeous. The elegant Marina was all things one could want in a host: warm and friendly without being overbearing, knowledgable and able to give useful advice on local activities and amenities, and provided a wonderful breakfast which set us up for our cycling tours. Only gripes: occasional feeling of being lectured at and slightly in the way when we (for work reasons) couldn't leave the accommodation first thing in the morning. All in all would recommend, especially to those who were travelling by car.

Loved our 3 night stay with at Noel and Marina's Moulin des Charmes. Noel and Marina are true professionals who thrive on pleasing and ensuring their guests comfort. Noel double booked our room and upgraded us to their recently renovated apartment over the garage. A brilliant erron or his part!!! We absolutely loved the apartment and with 2 teen age girls the extra space did not hurt. The setting is truly breathtaking and the home and gardens are splendid!!!! Our daughters loved playing with the dogs and we loved walking in and around the property. Marina and Noel are very knowledgeable about the area, gave us good tips on routes, restaurants and chateaux to visit. There are 2 highlights: an extremely comfortable bed and the lovely dinner with hosts and guests. Highly recommend to all who are planning to visit the Loire. But 2 notes of caution: you may not want to leave at the end of your stay and the GPS has a very hard time locating "Molineuf" we used "Gue de Taureau" and then asked local people for assistance to get to the Moulin.

Room Tip: any room will be fantastic.

This B&B is situated 5 minutes from the town of Blois in a small village, so you will have a very relaxing and quiet sleep. The room was extremely spacious and very comfortable, with a firm bed. For our room, the bathroom was across the hall, and it was also spacious and modern. The WiFi reception was spotty and only worked in corner of our room (so we had to huddle there to use our computers), but Marina assured us that they were in the process of acquiring a new router, so hopefully this hiccup will be fixed for future guests. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious, including fruit, pastries, and scrambled eggs. Noel and Marina gave excellent travel directions for around the Loire Valley and we felt very welcome.

Impeccable is the best word to describe this hotel.

We stayed here two nights. In fact we are still here.
The reason why we chose this hotel was because of the good reviews. Everything the website promises is true to the last details. A piece of England in the middle of France.

The first thing that is going to get your attention is the good taste, with which the rooms are furnished. Everything has very good taste.
The landscapes around Moulineuf are the way we imagined the French countryside to be like. People greet you in the streets, green pastures and little palaces spread all over the place.
We definitely recommend a stay here, if you are looking for a relaxing time.

We rented bikes in Blois, which is only 6 km away from the hotel and we rode all the way to two different castles.

We stayed with Noel and Marina during our honeymoon and had a lovely time. The dinner at the end of the week was superb. Marina is an excellent cook. Noel spoiled us with probably the best wine we've ever had. It is a beautiful bed & breakfast with a perfect, quiet landscape. One day we will return!

Hope you enjoy the ice wine!!

Best regards,
Sandra & Michael

What an incredible setting for a B&B. Noel and Marina are perfect hosts and our dinner with them at the B&B was a most enjoyable experience. Noel is a real entertainer and Marina has a sense of humor that is delightful. Located off the beaten path, but well worth the trip!

Room Tip: The yellow room was beautiful with a fantastic bathroom!
