Peace, space, nature in the Champagne-hugged Somme valley – and home-grown, organic meals with generous French hosts. Family-perfect

Read guest comments

The big 1789 farmhouse deep in the country has been in the Coulmier family for two generations. Luckily, one half of the main house has been given over to guests; an interconnecting suite (poppy-print wallpaper, wooden floors) provides family-sized space to match a child-friendly garden. Elsewhere, rooms are French 'rustic chic' to a tee; white lacquered bedsteads and cornflower-blue floral details in one, stylish dark wood and Burgundian limestone with tiny black cabochons in another. Valérie and Didier are lovely, friendly and knowledgeable hosts and will share delicious organic home-grown fare with you.

"Despite arriving very late, around 9pm, Valerie kept our meal for us and it was absolutely delicious. Our fellow guests had almost finished eating but they stayed and chatted to us and drank wine with us and it turned what had been a very stressful day into a really enjoyable evening. Our room was large, beautifully decorated and furnished, very clean and comfortable. Good breakfast, all in all very good and we'd be happy to go back for a longer visit."

"We were recommended to Au Pre du Moulin and were very glad we took up the recommendation. Valerie is a charming host and a superb cook, using wonderful fresh vegetables from the garden. Our room was large, overlooking the garden, beautifully furnished and decorated with a very comfortable bed and bathroom with a great shower and lovely big fluffy towels. The evening meal taken at a common table with other guests afforded interesting conversations helped by the generous serving of local wines. "

"We stayed here with our 5 year old on the way back from camping in Jura region. Made to feel very welcome on arrival and our son loved the trampoline and swings in the garden. Then served a beautifully cooked meal, wine, cheese and chocolate desert. Excellent nights sleep in the family suite where our son had his own room next door. Wish we could have stayed longer to explore more of the champagne region but only had time to stop at Mercier who do a great tour which kept the little one interested too!"

Andy - Guildford, United Kingdom

"Au Pre du Moulin was excellent in every respect. We arrived very late thanks to problems at the Tunnel, but we were immediately made to feel very welcome and given a lovely evening meal. The room was very comfortable, the facilities first class, and Valerie was a delightful host. We left the following morning after a very substantial breakfast, our only regret being that we only had time to stay one night. We are already thinking about a return visit when we would hope to stay a little longer. "

"Most charming place. Didn't arrive till v late but still made welcome (and by Gizmo, chien de maison!) Enjoyed the Champagne (made by cousin of Mmme). Stayed another two nights - perfect for visit to Rheims/ Epernay and Chalon. Just 5 minutes from Vertus where courtesy of pointers from Mme we tasted / purchased wonderful fizz - don't miss the Colin domaine! Supper at au Pre was delightful and delicious."

"Valérie runs a fabulous bed and breakfast. The rooms are very comfortable. We were a party of three adults and we found the suite was ideal and excellent value. Nothing was too much trouble and Valeris supplied us with excellent information on the area. We stayed three nights and booked the evening meal for the first night. It was delicious. Unfortunately We had not pre-booked the evening meal for the other two nights bur Valérie kindly fitted us in on the final evening. We would strongly advise to pre -book the evening meal. "

"This was the first night of our trip to Italy in an open-topped Morgan. We were welcomed warmly on arrival and Didier found us a safe place for the car in one of his huge barns whilst Valerie showed us to a shady spot in the garden where we could enjoy a much-needed cup of tea. Our room was large, cool (on a very hot day) and comfortable with a beautiful en-suite. We, along with the other guests, had opted for an evening meal which was a great success with all home-cooked (and mostly home-grown) delicacies and plenty of wine. It made for a convivial stay and a great start to our trip."


October 2015
"Lovely property, exceptional hospitality, excellent home cooked food, would certainly recommend to anyone, a place to return to without a doubt!"


September 2015
"What a wonderful place to stay. Such a welcome from Valerie. We stayed on the way and on the way back to a wedding. We felt like old friends on 2nd visit. Fantastic rooms. Every comfort provided. The food was fantastic. You must look at the vegetable garden where a lot of the food for dinner comes from. Valerie and her daughter Juliette were both so kind and thoughtful. We loved it so much my husband and daughters are staying for 4 nights in October whilst they visit some Champagne Houses. The best B and B we have ever ever stayed in. We will keep going back on our annual trips. "


September 2015
"We had a really lovely stay. We were greeted with a warm welcome and our rooms were perfect, valerie had thought of everything for a comfortable stay. We had a superb dinner and continental breakfast. Highly recommend a stop over. Thankyou valerie ☺☺"


August 2015
"A reasonable distance from Calais, on arrival met by a beaming smile from the hostess, Valerie. Nice Room. The evening meal was delicious with numerous courses with good wine, we had an entertaining evening with other guests, some with their young children. Breakfast in the morning was also lovely. Can see why guests choose to return. Valerie enjoys her work!"


August 2015
"Excellent stay at au Pre Du Moulin. We were welcomed by Valerie and shown our Double Room which was nicely furnished. I found the bed to be comfortable but restricted in length. The evening meal was fantastic and served with excellent French white wine. A really great venue and we will return as the location is ideal travelling to or from the Calais ferry."


August 2015
"We loved everything about Aupre de Moulin we were greeted by Valerie and her daughter and shown to the suite of rooms where the two of us were staying. The first thing that we liked about our accommodation was the spaciousness, a large bedroom with a very comfortable double bed, an en suite bathroom again very spacious; we had no need for the additional twin bedroom but all added to feeling of spaciousness. Guests have the benefit of the shared dining room and access to the trrace for the use of guests, very welcome as it happens because it was very hot and we were able to sit outside."


August 2015
"This is a wonderful, peaceful place to stay. The house is beautiful and our children loved the games, trampoline and all the animals! Valerie was a superb host and was very helpful regarding activities in the surrounding area. Her dinner was amazing and not to be missed! She was also extremely kind and thoughtful regarding catering for my son's multiple allergies. Highly recommended!"

August 2015
"Enjoyed a 2 night stay in this beautiful country house. Welcomed by Valerie with a cold beer on the terrace - just what we needed after a long hot day driving. Our bedroom and bathroom was delightful and very tastefully furnished. The evening meal and breakfast was excellent and in good company with fellow holidaymakers. Valerie doesn't cook on Sundays but was happy to provide a lovely home-cooked quiche and salad - perfect. We could not fault Au pre du Moulin and hope to return."
August 2015
"Very friendly and welcomingand offered a drink on arrival. Beautiful house and terrace, all spotlessly clean and wonderfully cool in hot weather. Room huge with good bathroom and breakfast good with fruit and yogurt, croissants and bread. Tea and coffee available to make any time. which is so rare in France! Lovely evening meal and plenty of it. Quite difficult to find; also difficult to find on website, please note! Would thoroughly recommend."
August 2015
"What a lovely place to stay, with such nice friendly hosts, we could not recommend it more highly. Deep in the French countryside, its a tranquil retreat. The rooms are a nice mixture of contemporary bathrooms combined with tasteful French decor. Dinner in the evening was just perfect and the highlight of the visit for us. Valerie is a very good cook. Should we find ourselves in the Champagne region again we would certainly we making another visit."
July 2015
"One of the best B&B's ever! Valerie was a gracious hostess and made us very welcome. Our room was spotless with a lovely bathroom.

June 2015
"If you are looking for a convenient stop-over driving to or from Calais or a base from which to explore and enjoy all that this area has to offer, this would be hard to beat. A warm and friendly welcome from Valerie and Didier was a good start. Their lovely light and well kept house with comfortable and imaginative rooms is a perfect and relaxing retreat. The house is enveloped in birdsong and and a pretty wooded area. Valerie cooked us a great dinner. They are thoughtful and considerate hosts, good fun and amusing. We hope to go again."
June 2015

"We arrived on a cold wet night in January, to as warm a welcome as the previous time when we stayed in the summer. Valerie cooked a delicious meal and our room was delightful and very comfortable. We will stay again!"
January 2015
"We own a property in Provence and so drive on a regular basis from Calais to Fayence, stopping overnight near Chalon en Champagne. We have stayed at Au Pres du Moulin a number of times, most recently in early December 2014. Valerie and her family have always made us feel most welcome . She is an excellent cook and always serves delicious, traditional French dinner and breakfast. The bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable.. I have no hesitation in recommending Au Pres du Moulin. "
December 2014
"We had a great stay in this beautiful B & B, the hosts were delightful and the meal was lovely with some good company. We look forward to hopefully another visit in the future."

August 2014

August 2014
"Comfortable big room for our family (2 kids). Lovely welcome, fun for the kids on the trampoline and swing. Gorgeous dogs, my children still refer to this as 'google's house'. Beautiful food and wonderful hosts!! Such easy access from the motorway, we will definitely stay here every time we travel down the east of France. "
July 2014
"Return visit, and greeted like old friends! Lovely room in a beautiful house, fresh décor, comfortable bed, lovely en-suite. Good food throughout, esp. dinner."

"Great place to stay we only stayed one as we were on our way to Tuscany. Valerie Coulmier was a great hostess always smiling and we enjoyed a lovely meal washed down with a bottle of red. Great accommodation, very clean and crisp bed linen. would recommend without any hesitation. Thanks for a wonderful stay Valerie, see you next year."
June 2014
"We received a very warm welcome as we travelled south through France. Lovely hosts serving an excellent evening meal. The accommodation was very comfortable and the cleanliness was of the highest possible standard. This B&B is well worth finding if you are anywhere near the area and we would definitely book here again."
May 2014
"An excellent choice if you wish to tour the Champagne region with lots of useful tips provided by Didier and Valerie. A beautiful farmhouse about 40minutes south east of Epernay in the idyllic village of Clamages The farmhouse is spacious and the furnishings are to a very high standard. Valerie performs wonders with the cuisine and provides a traditional French breakfast, in preparation for a day of Champagne tasting. You may well wish to practice your French with your hosts but expect the response in perfect English. Well worth the visit as hotel accommodation is sparse in the region.."
May 2014
"Valerie and Didier certainly deserve their reputations as two of France's finest hosts. Their very welcoming nature combined with an encyclopedic knowledge of the champagne area makes their farmhouse an ideal location to tour the area. On our request Valerie sent us to excellent local eateries for our days out and prepared great fresh salads with plates of local cheeses for our light evening meals. She directed us to one of the small champagne producers for tasting and purchasing of some fantastic bottles. Didier was particularly helpful in helping us choose our travel routes."
April 2014
"We stopped over, with dinner, when returning from a ski holiday. The Moulin was clean, very comfortable and warm throughout. Dinner and breakfeast were both excellent and the Coulmiers were extremely hospitable and helpful. Absolutely no reservations in recommending the Moulin to anyone."

The farmhouse is beautifully renovated, and extremely comfortable.(We had the "Cote du Moulin" room).There is a separate sitting room just for visitors. The Coulmiers are a delightful family - very welcoming and friendly, and the cuisine is excellent, as was the wine!(Special thanks to daughter Chloe for delicious desserts,also for a wonderful choice of home-made breads for breakfast!).We hope to stay again on our next visit to France."
June 2012
"We were welcomed very warmly by Valerie and her family. We had a comfortable and attractive bedroom on the ground floor which was easier for me as, since breaking my leg, stairs can be difficult! A delicious meal was cooked for us in the evening which we enjoyed in the company of our hosts -- giving us an unusual opportunity for conversation with a French family. Altogether a very pleasant place to stay -- we would certainly enjoy going again."

"We have stayed in Au Pre du Moulin 3 years running. Valerie and Didier are great hosts. The rooms are extremely comfortable and ideal for families like us with smaller children. Valerie is an excellent cook: we enjoyed a delicious meal of sanglier (wild boar), local cheeses and home made cherry tart. Breads, croissants and jams make for a very hearty breakfast. The children enjoyed their pasta tea and breakfast complete with hot chocolate and nutella."
April 2012

With 2 teenage children, we stayed in the spacious and very comfortable family room, with lovely bathroom. The welcome was warm and friendly. The evening meal was homely and delicious, with good wine. The breakfast of good coffee, hot chocolate, breads and homemade jams was scrumptious."
February 2012
"A short, but sweet stay with Valerie and Didier. Having run a B&B myself in UK for many years, it is always easy to find fault, but everything was just right. Lovely rooms with thoughtful touches and charming hosts. We had a wonderful evening dining with our hosts and felt as though we were visting friends, even though we were struggling with our spoken French! Just lovely!"
January 2012

We will be back many thanks I would certainly recommend this as a perfect stopping off point"
November 2011
"For 5 years we have only stayed in Sawdays-recommended places. We have stayed in some wonderful places - but this is simply the best so far.

September 2011
"This was our 4th visit, and have stayed in all the rooms, they are all different but equally lovely and comfortable, and the decoration is gorgeous throughout the house. The family are very welcoming and exceptionally helpful, the evening meal is superb - don't miss it! The breakfast is moreish with Valeries' homemade jams. We will be going back it's a fantatically warm and friendly place that we have fallen for."
September 2011
"This is a good place to stop off en route or for a few days stay. You are made to feel very welcome by the very attentive hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The bedrooms are of a good standard and immaculately clean and well-fitted out, with good en suite facilities. We opted for the evening meal and had a delicious and good value dinner prepared by Valerie. The breakfast was also very good. We would thoroughly recommend Au Pre du Moulin ans would definitely stay there again."
August 2011
"the warm welcome, clean and pretty bedroom and bathroom, and a tasty regional dinner made this the perfect place to start our holiday. Also easy to find and convenient for motorway, nearby medieval towns of Reims and Troyes both worth a longer visit than we spent. Good excuse to return au pré du Moulin"
August 2011
"We had a lovely stay at this house owned by the very friendly Valérie and Didier. The evening meal which we shared with the other guests around a large table was a great example of French home cooking, mostly from their own vegetable garden. The rooms are large, well equipped and very clean. WIFI is available. The house is only 10 mins drive from the route de Champagne (Cotes de Blancs) and the brother of the family produces a fabulous champagne grand cru (at a very reasonable price) which you should enquire about."
August 2011
"Fabulously friendly and welcoming host. Great food shared at a large table with other visitors. A wonderful stay."

"Delightful accomodation and hosts. From the second we arrive to the second we left, we were made to feel realxed and welcome by the whole family. Delightful guest spaces, mixed with being invited into the Family Dining/Kitchen in the evening to sit down with the hosts for a delicious meal and expertly chosen wine. The Coulmiers welcomed an opportunity to practice their conversational English with us over Dinner. A definate place to re-visit on one of our drives through the Region."
April 2011
"From our arrival we were welcomed as friends and made to feel settled with a drink after a long drive. Valerie's lovely cooking was shared by the four of us. The savoury cake was followed by mildly spiced fish - then cherry clafoutis. Didier is charming and enthusiastic about the land. Valerie enjoys a giggle and has a happy and relaxed relationship with their two charming girls. Home from home comfort."

September 2010
"We loved Au Pre du Moulin from the moment we walked in and were welcomed as guests, not clients. It was very comfortable, and the food was delicious - we caught Valerie picking the vegetables for the evening meal from her own garden! The home made aperatif, elderberry wine, was sensational. We are only sorry that we stayed just one night. Very warmly recommended."
