We stayed at Moulin de Lonceux for 2 nights and had the pleasure to meet the hostess, Ms Heitz : she is discrete, friendly and attentive to the customer's needs. The Moulin is located in a rather secluded area with ducks, swans, chickens, goats etc. We visited the Moulin which is still functioning. My favorite was the living room area with the fire place. Breakfast was very nicely set in the living room with freshly pressed orange juice, homemade warm bread, crumbles, croissants, eggs from the garden, homemade cake...
Tea/Coffee and a kettle were available in the room which is exceptional in France.
Ms Heitz recommended restaurants, especially one in Piat which I recommend.
We also had dinner at the Moulin (catered food) which was a nice option after a long day at work and the road. And Ms Heitz was able to prepare a special request vegetarian meal in a split second.
On our way back to Paris we visited the Chateau de Sauvage which has flamingos, walibi and pelikans in the wild. I had never seen such a thing even though I have traveled a lot.
I had a massage with Frederique. It was delightful. She took the time to ask a little bit about myself before the massage. She is really professional.
The only small criticism I would make about Moulin de Lonceux and it is the reason why I did not give a perfect 5 is that we stayed 2 nights but our bed was not made or room cleaned during our stay. We stayed at another B&B of same standard last summer and the room was cleaned everyday.
Still Moulin de Lonceux comes highly recommended. It is a very special place 40mn away from Paris and we would return without hesitation.
