“Amazing!!!”
Reviewed 25 October 2011

We had such an amazing time here. We spent 4 nights with one fantastic Sunday night dinner. Dinner is highly recommended. Food and conversation was great. My boyfriend is French and I am American, so English and French were both spoken with ease by the wonderful hosts.
Breakfast was always fresh, even when we left at 6 am.
We loved, loved, loved this place and can't wait to go back.

This was the most delightful, peaceful stop on our recent travels in France. The settng is so beautiful and tranquil, I wanted to stay forever. In addition to the charm of the old mill which has been converted to a comfortable, welcoming Bed and Breakfast, it is the hospitality and fantastic personalities of the owners Noel and Marina that really made the visit special. They made us feel more like we were visiting family than renting a room. The breakfasts served were delicious and highlighted my Marina's wonderful selection of homemade preserves. The location is perfect since it is in a very small town where you can walk to a local eatery or make a short drive to many, many choices of restaurants, shopping and chocolate!! I would recommend this to anyone and would return in a heartbeat.

The setting of this beautiful and tranquil manor was a pleasant site for us who had traveled so far and seen so much. We were greeted by Noel who's welcoming smile and energetic personality made us feel like family from the time he opened the gate till after we left. His lovely and sweet wife Marina saw to our every need including travel help , luxury accommodations, and the wonderful breakfast she had waiting for us every morning. They were both wonderful company. The garden offered us a sit by the stream, enjoying nature and sipping on the champagne they brought for us. We were so comfortable we didn't want to leave. We stayed several places along the Loire and had we known, would have stayed here the whole time. Merci! Noel and Marina.

We stayed with Marina and Noel for 6 days and were sorry to leave them and their lovely, comfortable home. You couldn't wish for better hosts and add to that an interesting home, fabulous breakfasts, quiet grounds to wander in and plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy the river gently running through the property ( and where we participated in the evening aperitif hour). Be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy a superb evening meal cooked by Marina with wines carefully chosen by Noel. We ate with them twice and both were memorable evenings - far better than driving to find a dinner that often is pricier and not as delicious. An added plus is you don't have to drive home! We were in the Camelia suite upstairs and were very comfortable. The other two rooms (one more upstairs and one on ground level) looked equally lovely. Both Noel and Marina went out of their way to make sure we knew where to go to see interesting sites on our daily jaunts around the countryside. I will recommend Le Moulin des Charmes to friends and would return in a heartbeat.

It was an honour and a treat to spend 6 nights in the care of Noel and Marina. I say care because they so obviously do about their guests feeling welcome, comfortable and as friends in their home. If there has been a bad egg in these reviews they cannot spoil the lot as these hosts are nothing but sunny side up!!! Pull round the corner in past the gates and tired from your journey and voila you are whisked into a world befitting its name. We enjoyed everything from room to meals to conversation to advice about all topics!!! What are you waiting for? Arrive as a friend to be and you will leave as a friend with great memories!:)

We stayed at Le Moulin des Charmes for two nights with our two daughters in September. We were very warmly welcomed by both Noel and Marina. The Mill is a a beautiful home with some parts of the mill dating back to the 12th century. We occupied two rooms one downstairs and our daughters were upstairs. The rooms are fantastic, beautifully decorated and with large private bathrooms. The security gates are easy to operate and provide a secure environment for everyone.

The grounds of the Mill are idyllic and it was very peaceful to wake to the sounds of the countryside after spending a week in Paris. My youngest daughter loved being able to help Marina feed the geese and chooks and play with Roxy the dog. Marina related beautifully with both our daughters (as did Noel). We took lovely walks through the property.

Marina is a fantastic cook. We enjoyed lovely breakfasts and a magnificent dinner prepared for us by Marina with the other guests and Noel generously matched wines from his personal cellar for each course.

Noel and Marina helped us to plan our activities while in Loire, recommended and even booked us into local restaurants. They gave us expert instructions on how to get to our next destination - Bordeaux. Noel even advised us on places to visit in Bordeaux. Thank you Noel we loved Sainte Emillion.

We would definitely highly recommend Le Moulin Des Charmes.

Thanks for the fabulous experience.

We stayed here the same time as Ian and his family and another couple from New Zealand and we must say we loved it. We had the Magnolia room on the groundfloor and could step right into the garden. It was really nice and quiet especially for us, living in the city. The room was very nice with a huge bathroom. Noel is a real entertainer and Marina is a great cook. The dinner we had (8 people) was great, everybody really enjoyed theirselves. She really made a kind of triffle which was great. Also a delicious breakfast. For us the gate was ok, it gives you a privat idea. The first night we had dinner in the hotel on the other side of the road, which was also very nice. Noel and Marina thanks again for the lovely time we had in your house, we really felt welcome.
