I began my month long trip to France at Le Clos Rabelais for three nights. Shaun was lovely! Very sweet, informative, considerate (he was always making sure that my bed was comfortable, if I needed anything, etc). He and the housekeeper, Martine, wound up making dinner one night for me and two other guests (a couple from San Diego, CA).... More

Having searched high and low for an available guest house for 5 x persons (seemingly during the busiest weekend of the year!) we stumbled upon Le Clos Rabelais... And what a fantastic stumble that was. From start to finish, the stay was full of laughter, wine and then some more wine, all while being welcomed and entertained by Shaun, the... More

Would highly recommend this place. A wonderful bed and breakfast with delightful hosts who were so welcoming, I have a small dog who was made to feel totally at home. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here from the second we arrived and were offered a glass of complementary wine. Breakfast was fresh croissants and brioche with fruit and yoghurt and super... More

Very good accomodations with a charming private bathroom with each room. Embracing and engaging public rooms decorated to invite patrons in to relax. Food, service, and host were excellent! Will gladly stay again. Thank you Sean. BD from Ca.

My annual journey south included my now annual journey break in the Loire. My fifth time at Le Clos Rabelais was just as good as always! Comfy bed, great hosts and a great base for seeing some of the main delights of the Loire region! I'll be back again next year!

My husband and I, and our two boys, loved this place. We stayed for a week. Shaun is funny, entertaining, and welcoming. Patrick joined us toward the end of the stay. They are great hosts. The place itself has lots of public space to just hang out, the rooms are comfy, and the food is great. The village is charming,... More

Upon arriving we we're not met by Patrick (in England) but by his partner (Shaun). Our accommodations were up a two-story outside spiral staircase at the back of the property. Imagine carrying two big suitcases up those narrow staircase (we were lucky that the handyman did it for us). Our room's floors were dirty, had cobwebs throughout, and mosquitoes and... More

This was an excellent stopover on a long drive, and we appreciated the friendly welcome, Shaun's entertaining company and conversation, and a very well-prepared and tasty evening meal, as well as a good breakfast. The guests' lounge/dining area was large, comfortably furnished and welcoming. We were accommodated in the uphill annexe which was quiet - though getting there might be... More

As a long married well traveled couple, we were quite overwhelmed by the warm hospitality we received on our arrival. Pouring rain delayed our arrival until well after dark. We were exhausted and tired but suddenly felt alive and happy when Shaun greeted us inside. We walked into a large living/dining space which was a picture of comfort with a... More
