I am always at home and enjoy helping guests to plan their day so they can get the most out of their stay in the Loire Valley. I can book tables in local restaurants, give helpful advice for car rental, visits to wine caves and unusual places
to visit. I
There are so many things I love in this area. The country side, in this part of France is called "The Garden of France". The vineyards, the historical castles, the local markets. Walks or bike rides along the river. A glass of chilled white Sauvignon on a warm summer's evening. Eating out in local restaurants. Just the whole way of life in France
There are two main train stations about 45mins. drive from here, St Pierre des Corps, the TGV comes into this station or Blois where the slower train arrives. At both stations you can find car hire companies, it is advisable to book a car in advance.
There is also an airport in Tours.
We have two bikes on the premises for hire.
The rooms are strictly non smoking.
Whilst the apartment itself was lovely (persistent wifi problems aside), we were less impressed by the constant intrusion of the host. It was like moving back home with Mother. I'm sorry if there were any breakages. We would, of course, have paid for them if asked. Prior to making the booking we did ask if the home was baby-safe. Evidently it wasn't.
I am sorry for any wifi problems you may have had. It was my hope that any problems would have been resolved by re-booting the router as I had suggested. As far as the intrusions, I believe the only time I was in your cottage was when I went to open the windows to air it out. I was not informed of any breakage prior to your departure and only learned of it after you had gone. If you would truly like to pay for the breakages I would be grateful.
Thank you very much.
My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Le Moulin du Mesnil in the 2 storey private apartment with our own terrace. What an absolute treat. The entire property is just gorgeous and Yvonne is the most wonderfully helpful and thoughtful host. Yvonne couldn't do enough for us, including advising us on which chateaux to visit and helping us plan our days so to get the best out of what there was to see, avoiding the crowds etc and recommending cafes for dinner etc. We truly felt like we were part of the family not just people passing through. The breakfasts were fantastic and varied, from pancakes to eggs and croissants and bread with home made jams, all at a beautifully laid table. Thank you so much for everything Yvonne, we would love to come back one day and/or see you in Australia.
Des moments très agréables passés au Moulin, idéalement situé pour visiter les chateaux, endroit apaisant, ressourçant. La suite est totalement indépendante, amoureux courez-y !
Yvonne est également de très bon conseil quant aux visites, resto...
à refaire, sans modération.
Just the greatest place to discover this region of beautiful castles and exquisite wine! Yvonne has been an amazing host, she helped us in various ways and gave us excellent informations about the area. She also prepared the best breakfast you can imagine...
The suite in itself is spacious, bright and clean, just as on the pictures. It's difficult to describe how inspiring and relaxing this place is. Just go for it and see yourself!
We had a wonderful stay in this gorgeous B&B. Yvonne is such a lovely lady and a great host, very helpful and makes a fabulous breakfast. We stayed with our 1 year old daughter and the little enclosed courtyard was perfect for her to be safe and for us to enjoy the surroundings. Beautiful accommodation in a wonderful area.
Our stay at Yvonne's was truly memorable and one we will treasure. She was the consummate host. The breakfasts she prepared were absolutely delicious and above expectation, and presented with style. Her advice on places of interest were extremely helpful also. Actually, it really felt that we were staying with a favourite relative or a good friend.
We would highly recommend anyone to stay with Yvonne if you are in the Loire Valley and intend to return soon.
We could not review this place highly enough. Tucked back off a gravel road, Yvonne and her husband have transformed old ruins into a beautiful, majestic B&B. The room we stayed in was beautifully decorated, inviting us to relax and enjoy the gorgeous view from the sliding glass doors onto her property on the first floor, or take an afternoon nap on the comfortable bed upstairs. Yvonne herself went above and beyond to make us comfortable, with snacks, maps, magazines, tea, coffee, any anything else we needed (she loaned us some articles we had forgotten). She even sat down with us and helped us plan our time in the Loire Valley! Her breakfast was a much needed break from the basic toast and jam, and left us ready to face our chateau visiting days. If you are looking for an impeccable retreat set in a gorgeous location, with warm hospitality, look no further!
