1 rue du moulin, Mesland, 41150

Welcome to the Clos Sainte-Marie !

We are located in Mesland, a small and charming village on the north shore of the Loire river, between the towns of Blois and Amboise. The village is one of the stops on the road of the vineyards of the Loire Valley, and is within short distance of the main “châteaux”.

This former wine estate was built in the middle of the nineteenth century and comprises an 1846 mansion, a beautiful and peaceful park with century old trees, and of the former stable and wine making facility. The last harvest happened in the Clos in 1955. A small river, the Cissot crosses the Park.

The 14m swimming pool and its deckchairs, is an ideal haven to relax and refresh between visits of the “châteaux”, wine –tastings, walking-tours and bike-tours.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the Clos Sainte-Marie!

Description of Le Clos Sainte Marie Bed & Breakfast:

We are located in Mesland, a small and charming village on the north shore of the Loire river, between the towns of Blois and Amboise. The village is one of the stops on the road of the vineyards of the Loire Valley, and is within short distance of the main “châteaux”.

This former wine estate was built in the middle of the nineteenth century and comprises an 1846 mansion, a beautiful and peaceful park with century old trees, and of the former stable and wine making facility. The last harvest happened in the Clos in 1955. A small river, the Cissot crosses the Park.

The 14m swimming pool and its deckchairs, is an ideal haven to relax and refresh between visits of the “châteaux”, wine –tastings, walking-tours and bike-tours.

The house comprises a main lounge, a library, a very large dining room, three suites and two large bedrooms. It was totally refurbished in 2008, but kept in its original nineteenth century style.

Our rates include a French style continental breakfast. From time to time and only by reservation, we will host diners in the dining room for guests only. We will be happy to recommend restaurants in the area and book your reservations for lunch or diner. Upon advance notice, we will provide light meals (such as salads) to be eaten outdoors near the pool and pic-nic baskets. Non-alcoholic drinks are also available all day on the premises.

Health and ecology matter a lot to us, and in that perpective, the shower gels and shampoos we provide to our guests, are fully organic, of the COSLYS brand. In our meals, we are aiming to provide our guests with produces as natural as possible. We will try to further progress along this path in the future.

The Loire Valley is registred with UNESCO as « World Heritage » and offers to its visitors magnificent landscapes, from the still wild Loire river, large forests and Royal Castles.

Located on the « Wine Road » and surrounded by vineyards, Mesland, our beautiful little village, was founded as a Priory in the 12th century by monks of the Marmoutier Abbey – the Notre-Dame church is still standing as a witness. The village has given its name to the “Touraine-Mesland” category of the Loire valley wines, and you will be able to taste those at the Estate or directly at the producer.
