Welcome to Rabelaisien!

Semi-troglodyte house for 4, on the edge of the forest, perfect for those looking for a quiet area for your holidays.
In the countryside, a few steps from La Devinière (2 km) and Chinon (8 km) and the castles of the region, you just have to put on your shoes to walk directly in the forest, enjoy the birdsong or go for a bike ride (The Loire by bike).
You have more than 20 castles / museums / gardens / winegrowers to visit within 20 km.

The space
We have been renovating our little house ourselves for three years. It's made to our liking but we hope you like it too. It is located in Cinais, a pretty village with cave houses, a bakery and a restaurant. It is about 8 km from Chinon which can be reached by car or you can cycle along the river or join the Loire á Vélo trail.

The village is well situated for day trips to many famous Loire Valley castles, museums, boat and canoe trips, wine tastings or just a walk in the forests of Chinon.

We are more than happy to help you discover this Unesco heritage area.

Access for travelers
You have the whole house at your disposal.

We have made the move to France 3 years ago and now we would like to share this beautiful region with guests from around the world. I enjoy the cycling here and the amazing, fresh, organic food and trying to grow it myself as much as possible.
