Chabris is a commune in the Indre department in central France.

Located at an important river crossing-place on the road from Valençay to Romorantin with a bridge since Roman times, Chabris was once the site of the ancient Bishop of Bourges's feudal fortress. Its church was built over the tomb of the 6th century hermit Saint Phalier.
