“Charm & Character with Gourmet Breakfasts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013

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.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2012

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!

My wife and I spent 2 nights at Le Clos Pasquier and enjoyed our stay. If you like to take a walk in the forest there is one across the road from the house. The breakfast was excellent and certainly above standard. Although we found the owners to be very friendly and helpful be advised that they do go into your room more than is warranted (when you go out during the day and when you go out to dinner at night) and you may find your possessions have been moved around unnecessarily. It is also suggested that you bring your own soap as none is provided for washing in the sink. It is only 5 mins out of Blois.

Room Tip: If you are a tall person you may want to get the 135 euro rooms in the main house as the cheaper adj...

Dear guest,
Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We are gratefull for your feedback.
We come in the rooms only one time on the morning (to make the bed, change all the towels and clean the bathroom and the toilets) and only one time on the evening normally only to close the shutters and put a chocolate or a mashmallow on the pillows before sleeping.
In your case, fortunately, we came in the room every evening because the towels were used as carpet on the floor of the shower during the showers and they were so wet that they were mouldy. So we had to change the towels every morning and every evening. Of course, we never touch to the personnel things that belong to our guests.
Regarding soap, of course you can find in all our bathrooms, soap, shower gel and shampoo (Comfort Zone Spa Rituals - Award of the best spa product in 2006 in Monte-Carlo). Of course, there was not enough soap to wash six weeks clothes in the sink of the bathroom. So, maybe, you could ask us more soap as you asked us help to call the car rental agency because you had problems with the manual car because you didn't rent an automatic one.
Last thing : we are lucky to live in a 16th century manor the first track of construction was in the year 1500. There are thus contraints of height in two of our four rooms we couldn't avoid. This makes all the charm of an authentic house. We wished that these small contraints appear on our website, it is the case. So our guests can choose their room in full knowledge of the facts and accordind to their size which evolved a lot for 500 years. For our tall guests, Suites are perfect.

If you are contemplating touring the Loire Valley to see the many chateaus in the surrounding area, the city of Blois is an excellent, central place in which to stay. And, if you are lucky enough to obtain accommodations at this wonderful B & B, you will have the privilege of staying with two of the most exceptional hosts that we have encountered anywhere throughout our travels. We stayed in the Suite du Four au Pain for two nights
( wish it had been longer). There is a separate entrance to the Suite, which had a beautiful living room, and spacious bedroom. The suite is very inviting, quiet, and serene. The bed itself was extremely comfortable, and we were impressed with the attention to detail, including sensitivity to being environmentally green in the design of the Suite.

Claire & Laurent Nicot, our hosts, served a sumptuous breakfast of varied home-made delicacies, and locally farmed specialties. The only problem is having enough room to eat it all! The Nicot's are fantastically helpful with dinner recommendations, reservations, answering questions, providing helpful suggestions. They are gracious and warm. We loved it here and plan to go back!

Fabulous friendly welcome from the nice couple running this chambre d'hote. Nicely decorated room and a great walk in shower. They try to provide organic food where possible and encourage good 'green' habits such as turning off lights.
The breakfast was one of the more copious I have ever tasted - all home made and we didn't need lunch until mid afternoon!
The only down side was that it is a drive rather than a walk from the town centre so if eating out in the evening not so easy to enjoy the nice local wines.

This was part of a Loire trip which had us staying in a number of B&Bs around the area. This was not only our favourite of this trip but was one of the best B&Bs if we have stayed in anywhere.The owner was a fantastic host in terms of explaining the area and helping us out with restaurants in Blois which all worked out very well. The breakfast was terrific and that along with the great rooms were really top end. Overall I would say I would recommend this to anyone staying in the area as a great place to stay.
