An authentic place, a gourmet break... Enjoy the charms and calm of the Berrichonne countryside. Welcome to the world of Cyril Orinel.
"Welcoming you to a unique place, tantalising your taste buds and allowing you to discover our culture of receiving guests, French-style."
Destiny certainly likes to play the joker, and who is Cyril to argue with this: "As a child, I used to visit the Hotel & Restaurant Le Moulin de Chaméron, The Originals Relaiswith my parents for dinner. The beauty and charm of the place really captured my imagination. During the last dinner I enjoyed on the terrace as a customer, I exclaimed: "Imagine if this could be mine one day!" 2 years later, through a fortunate stroke of serendipity, it had happened. It’s easy to succumb to the beauty of this old eighteenth century mill. Others, like Cyril, have been captivated by the authenticity and magic of the place, hidden in the Bannegon countryside a few score kilometres south-east of Bourges. "The MacLaren F1 team made our Bannegon hotel their base for the France Nevers Magny-Cours grand prix; Ayrton Senna and the other drivers would always stay at the Hotel & Restaurant Le Moulin de Chaméron, The Originals Relais".
With just 13 rooms, the Hotel & Restaurant Le Moulin de Chaméron, The Originals Relais is a real cocoon. An enchanted place for a break dedicated to serenity.

What our customers say
"good hotel, but the quality of the restaurant was really substandard"
The hotel accomodation was fine. The restaurant was abominably bad. The price-quality ratio was completely lost. What was presented in the menu as 'Ballotine de Pintade Farce fine de Veau et Mushrooms, Réduction Sancerre, Navets rôtis aux Copeaux de Saint Nectaire' resembled a piece of meat warmed up in warm water with an indefinable filling, the navets rôtis also came out of the water and a slice of indefinable cheese had been quenched on hte meat. For a menu of EUR 39 really far below par. Apparently the only staff member that evening was aware that the quality was not good because not once he asked if we enjoyed the menu.
Good food, accommodation ok
