We stayed for two nights at this charming, newly renovated inn and can't wait to go back. It blends old world character with modern touches and convenience. It's a short walk to all the cafes and shops in Amboise. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and we appreciated their wonderful English. Sylvie even drove us to the train station...

We stayed here for two nights while doing La Loire a Velo. It was such a treat to come back here each night, when we were tired from the day's ride -- and usually soaking wet from the unseasonable rain. We took advantage of the hot tub for our aching cyclist's legs, but because of the weather did not get...

I make a mistake. I booked a room in the very expensive hotel next door to Hotel Au Charme Rabelaisien. The room was attractive, but moldy and it smelled. We went to Madame Sylvie and begged her to take us in. We were in luck! The Hotel Au Charme Rabelaisien had just finished a major renovation and expansion. There are...

We arrived at Au Charme Rabelaisien during 'la canicule' - a heatwave in early July 2015. The lovely swimming pool was like a mirage in the desert! Split system air conditioner in each room was much appreciated. Madame Sylvie greeted us warmly, helped with luggage and directed us to secure parking behind the property. She is a very welcoming lady...

If you are staying in Amboise, you must, must stay here. Madame Sylvie is a wonderful hostess, who welcomes you with open arms. The rooms are spacious, well appointed, and quiet. I simply can't sing the praises of this place enough. We had an early morning tour, and Sylvie set up breakfast early for us so we wouldn't be leaving...

Au Charme Rabelaisien is located in the historic section of Amboise and is just a few minutes’ walk from the Chateau de Amboise and all the shops and restaurants that line the street outside its walls. The restaurants get busy, so make reservations for dinner. We enjoyed Chez Bruno, but couldn't get in the first night without reservations. Our spacious...

From the first moment where Sylvie rushed out to the street to help us with our luggage, my friend and I enjoyed the wonderful hospitality and ambience of this lovely B & B and its hostess.

I stayed here for 3 nights touring the areas chateaus. Very lovely, warm hotel in perfect location. Well kept and clean. Private parking, rainfall style shower. Great breakfast, owner walked in the door with still hot baked goods from bakery. I was able to walk to sites, restaurants and shops.

All the amenities one could ever wish for in a very attractive room - even a new little tube of toothpaste, along with regular toiletries, in the bathroom. Sylvie is the very generous and gracious owner who goes out of her way to help her guests. Breakfast was excellent. The pool, although not large, was most refreshing after a day...
