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

Every thing you could want and more for breakfast,and we were able to use the large... 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

My friends and I booked the rooms for 2 nights and we had a great time. Shaun and Patrick are very friendly, helpful and funny. They are always there to help and offering advises regarding sightseeing. Their place was also close to many castles (driving distance) that my friends and I wanted to visit. Breakfast was delicious. They offered us... More

This property was easy to find, being within walking distance of the centre of Langeais. Shaun was a charming, amusing and generous host and we felt like old friends by the end of our visit. The bedroom was beautifully decorated and we were invited to relax in the lounges or garden with a glass of wine or beer. The dinner,... More

Arriving a day earlier than our host Shaun expected (my fault entirely) we were welcomed with copious quantities of wine and deliciously outrageous humour. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet - and had chocolate, wine and water as well as everything else that you would wish. In the afternoon, whilst drinking a glass of wine on the patio, Shaun...
