“A wonderful two days”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2011

Le Clos Pasquier is an exceptional property, and we chose to stay there in preference to being in the heart of Blois for this very reason, despite the fact that it is not as convenient. The advantage of course is that it is very very peaceful, yet takes just minutes to drive to the centre.

The house offers you a lovely, welcoming, restful atmosphere, has lots of character including original beams and beautiful terracotta tomettes, is decorated with great style, imagination and taste, and equipped to an extremely high standard.

We communicated in both English and French with our charming, attentive hosts. Always approachable for help with information of all kinds, Claire and Laurent also prepare you a wonderful continental breakfast: a different and generous choice on successive days, (including table setting!) much of which was made in their own kitchen: little rice puddings, breads, jams, delicious baked apples ...

Our only criticism if it can be called such, was that we wanted to enjoy the local wines with our evening meal and the taxis to the town were very expensive since (we assume that) the meter starts running from the geographical point at which the driver receives your call.

We have a second home in the South West which we rent to holiday-makers. Le Clos Pasquier would make the ideal stop-over for those of our guests intending to drive south and to explore the delights of the Loire on the way: we will be recommending it - vivement!

We would highly recommend this Chambre D'Hote. The owners are delightful and very helpful, the room was fabulous and the breakfasts have to be the best we have eaten. You are about 5-10 mins from Blois and a perfect location to visit many of the Chateaux.

We had an excellent weekend at Le Clos Pasquier. The owners were very friendly and welcoming, offering us brochures and recommendations for all the different things to do in the area. They provided very good advice on the local castles, Blois, and where traffic may be heavy. The room we had was renovated and very comfortable, and the common room downstairs would have been a great place to relax if we had more time! The breakfast was also excellent. It's not an American breakfast (no bacon, eggs, sausage, or pancakes), but it's about the best French breakfast I've had, with homemade breads, fresh fruit, smoked salmon, ham, yogurt, etc.

Only potential drawbacks: it's not in the town, so you need a car to get there, or rent a bike at the train station. It's not particularly close to a bridge, so if you're planning to bike to the castles or vineyards, just be aware you'll first have to bike to a bridge. It's not immediately obvious from the road (it's a home, not a hotel), but there is a small sign out front, and our GPS did find it (although we had to type "Oree" and not "Impasse" to let the GPS locate it).

But if you're looking for a relaxing place to stay with a delicious breakfast and helpful and friendly hosts, I'd highly recommend it.

In contrast to our personal experience with the vast majority of tripadvisor reviews upon which we have relied, we were quite disappointed with Le Clos Pasquier. This was the most expensive hotel in which we stayed during a 2 week trip to Italy/France, but it was not the nicest, most convenient, or best value for the money. It was extremely difficult to find, despite GPS and several phone calls to the hotel. The owners seemed quite annoyed by our difficulty in following their (poor) directions. We would have chalked this up to our lack of fluency in French, except that a subsequent experience at Les Valles in Crisse-sur-Manse, a B&B in a tiny village in which essentially no English was spoken, was delightful, largely due to the owners, who made us feel most welcome.

Le Clos Pasquier is a fantastic guesthouse five minutes drive from the centre of Blois. Claire and Laurent, the owners, are a sophisticated couple who have thought carefully about every detail to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The property has been beautifully restored and the beds are incredibly comfortable (the same make as in a well known 5 star hotel chain). Claire and Laurent are extremely welcoming and helpful. We arrived late on the first night and they were able to suggest a restaurant that would still be serving and even booked a table for us. During our stay, they also suggested Chateaux and other places to visit and every recommendation was perfect. The breakfast is magnificant and the experience was brilliant from start to finish.

Terrific Host and Hostess make you feel invited in to their lovey renovated 16th century old hunting house. The decor is superb (very modern upgrades/bathrooms) along with the beautiful breakfast that Clare & Lauren's do with great pride. Listen to their restaurant recommendations in Blois; (we had three nights and three excellent restaurants). The B&B location is easy to get to; in a quaint village across from the Loire and two minutes out of Blois. Blois town was well worth the time to explore especially the Chateau in town and enjoy the town turns into a huge market on Sat. am.. And all the most glamourous chateau's are with in a hours drive. You will be amazed as we were and listen to your hosts reccommendations if you are under three days stay. We will never forget our host's generous help when we messed up our TGV Train travel to Tours/St. Pierre which is where we got the rental car. One important note is to make sure you have cash to pay the note/invoice.
