“Fantastic place!”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

Me and my wife stayed here for 2 nights and we loved this place so much, we didn't want to leave. We'd got entire house for a guests and it was like a small castle from a fairy tale))) The house was well furnished, very clean with small touches of attention (like dvd-player, welcome wine and especially the Teddy bear))) Shaun and Sue were so friendly with a good sense of humor, they gave us all the information we needed. The breakfast was delicious and well served.
We would highly recommend this place and definitely stay there again.

We stayed for 2 nights during our trip to France and the location was perfect for walking into town and enjoying lovely Langeais. Upon our arrival, Shaun welcomed us with his warm personality and 2 very much appreciated glasses of wine!! He walked us around the grounds and toured the home and we were happy to be in a very bright sunny location. We stayed in the Garden Room which offered us more space (after staying in small hotels we were more than pleased with the size of the room). Shaun gave us a bottle of wine to enjoy at our leisure and after we settled in for a while, he hand delivered ice cream..which we so enjoyed..it was a very, very hot day! He provided many little "extras" in the room and bath area which just added to our wonderful stay.
His house staff (I cannot recall her name) was delightful and we enjoyed our conversations with her at breakfast and upon our return from our day trips. Everyone was very helpful with suggestions for excursions and sights to see. We definitely enjoyed our stay, Shaun was a wonderful host and we would be happy to recommend Le Clos Rebelais.

What a great place to stay! We loved the hospitality from Shaun and loved that we were up in the gite at back of property. Very cozy and private. Shaun went out of his way to make our 3 night stay enjoyable. From a wonderful meal, hand delivered bottle of welcome rose wine to the cheeky banter, it was all awesome. To top it off, Shaun was also able to host us in his lounge room to watch the Lions v Wallabies rugby test. We have no hesitation in recommending this region of France to visit and would love to return to stay with Shaun again.

3 of us travelling together has a great time in our stay here. Shaun (with the help of Sue) looked after us very well, including some extra care for one of us who was quite sick. The rooms were large and lovingly furnished, and the dinners Shaun cooked for us were great, as was the conversation. We spent our two days here being treated like old friends who were catching up.

Add to that the be beautiful Langeais township, and this is a highly recommended stop in any journey through France.

We stayed here in summer 2012 and enjoyed it very much!! Place is quite clean, quaint and perfect little spot to experience small town France. We stayed here with a rental car and drove all around the Loire Valley. Its a nice spot in the middle as your home base and the little town of Langeais is also cool to see. If staying here make sure you have plans to go out and about in the Loire Valley as the town of Langeais is only good for about half days of exploring.

Shaun and Patrick were excellent hosts, fun to hang out with and talk to. You can ask Shaun to make a meal for you at a reasonable price and the food and drinks they provide during the meal are very good.

Overall a great stay!

Another great start to my Euro Roadtrip! Le Clos Rabelais is just as good as the first time (although I did miss my chats with Patrick, he was away working in the UK this visit), Shaun was as entertaining as ever greeting me with a cold Bier Blonde after the long drive! And thanks to him I now have new Antipodean friends. He made sure, as a loan traveller, I was welcomed by the other groups staying here! So on both nights I had company for my evening meal. My room was as comfortable and clean as always and the Breakfast was lovely and filled me for the day! Although it was sad that Pongo is no longer around, Oscar is a wonderful replacement! See you again next year!

Staying with Shaun was one of the best decisions we could have made. The experience, the room, the entire B&B were all perfect. When we needed to leave earlier than the normal breakfast time, they had a tray brought up to the room the evening before to make sure we had something (incredibly delicious) to eat in the morning. The place was incredibly clean and smelled wonderful. We stayed in the garden room, which was nice and out of the way, although doesn't have wifi in room, which was slightly disappointing. Overall, they get a 5/5 without a doubt.

Room Tip: The garden room doesn't have wifi.
