We stayed here 18 years ago and 29 years ago and loved it. The same owners have managed it for 30 years. It has not lost its charm and the breakfast is outstanding. The rooms are nicely appointed and the location is convenient. Perfect setting. All the jams at breakfast are homemade.

We stayed for two nights - could easily have spent at least one more night. The place is absolutely beautiful, and there is a lot to do in the area. The B&B has a good breakfast and you have access to a small kitchen with two hot plates, microwave, fridge and a freezer - which is really nice if you like us had ate at restaurants for two weeks when we arrived. There is a big supermarket 5 min drive from the B&B. The B&B has a few wines you can buy and enjoy in the living room. We drove to a city nearby one day (app. 5 min drive) and rented bikes. There are great biking routes clearly marked.

We stayed here for 3 nights in September. The owners are very kind, and we managed to communicate between our limited french and their slightly better english. Jean-Louis was very helpful in making a dinner reservation which we would not have been able to do on our own! The place is very clean and well appointed. We had a ground floor suite, 2 connecting rooms with 2 bathrooms. The grounds are wooded, and there is a small pond with benches to sit and reflect. We made this our home base to explore some of the Loire Valley castles. Contres is a small town and not much in the way of weekend eateries. Those available have limited seating. I would highly recommend reservations. Overall we enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it.

This lovely B &B was a cute small house with two bedroom and two bathrooms with small kitchen and fireplace. We stayed for one night at the end of August. It was perfect location for visiting some of the Loire Valley's famous chateaus. The owner set up a lovely breakfast for us at a preset time on the table in the kitchen/living room area. Everything was fresh and delicious! We really enjoyed our stay!

We spent two nights at this charming countryside B and B just minutes from Cheverny castle. We stayed in the upstairs room which was immaculate and spacious. Breakfast was delicious. The hosts Martine and Jean-Louis speak good English and were extremely helpful with dinner recommendations. The common room is comfortable. Wifi available. Would definitely recommend.

We spent one night at La Rabouillere and really enjoyed it. This place has got lots of charme and is located far away from anything in the beautiful countryside, but still just about 20 mins away from Chevergny Castle. The room was beautiful and clean. We especially loved the fireplace and the common space. Breakfast was delicious. The hosts are also extremely friendly. Well done !

I've stayed twice at La Rabouillere and thoroughly enjoyed each visit. Between the lovely fermette to the white and gray free range chickens and the quiet, not to forget the wonderful breakfast included...this is the place to stay. The host and hostess are helpful and non-imposing. You can buy a glass or bottle of wine to sip in front of the huge fireplace in the lounge. After a day of touring, blissful rest. During my first time here, a gent from Paris was staying and hunting with the marquis of Cheverny the next day. The Cheverny Chateau is close by and one of my favorites as it is still inhabited by descendents of the original owner.

We stayed in the house at La Rabouillere which was very pleasant. The setting between farmland and forest is lovely. The location is excellent for touring the eastern Chateaux. The hosts could not have been any warmer or more charming and helped us with dinner reservations and touring suggestions, and even a nip of their beautiful home-made aperitif. The common room was lovely with an open fire and was at our entire disposal. The room itself was very clean and spacious but there were a few issues here. It was not very well lit. Some windows could not be curtained to keep out the morning sun. I am not tall but hit my head on the ceiling while showering with the hand-held shower (not fixed). Breakfast was excellent quality but without much choice. Despite these things, I would be very happy to stay at La Rabouillere again, especially due to the most charming hosts.

We stayed for 2 nights in Domaine de la Rabouillere just a few kilometers from the Cheverny castle. The house is designed as local country side building. The room was equipped with all required including heating. The owners - very nice couple are speaking English, they will also serve the continental breakfast and will assist with the explanations, suggest castles and places to eat. Overall - good value for money, good location.

Our family of 4 (with 2 young children aged 6 and 2) rented the cottage for 5 days. M. and Madame Thimonnier were very pleasant hosts. They speak a little English and together with our elementary French, we could manage most conversations. Breakfast was included in the rental (we paid EUR 160/night) and while it was basic (croissants, baguette, juice, coffee, tea and hot chocolate), was very nice to wake up to a breakfast even though our cottage came with a simple kitchen. The cottage had 2 bedrooms and 2 bath, both spotlessly clean. Location was perfect for exploring the Loire valley and its castles. Blois and Cheverny were a 10-15 minutes' drive, Chambord was less than an hour, and other main towns were also manageable. The B&B is situated in a quiet countryside, and had a large garden complete with a pond where a family of ducks calls home.
