La Charité-sur-Loire Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our Benedictine Suite (66 square metre/710 sq feet) is comprised of recently remodeled suite of rooms, with a private outdoor patio, nestled in a complex of medieval buildings. The suite is located within the remnants of the ancient walls of the medieval town centre next to the magnificent 12th century Clunic priory church of Notre Dame which was named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1998. It has an excellent view of the church and the “Parc des Bénédictins”.

We have made every effort to maintain the antiquity of this charming two bedroom unit during renovation. In the same complex we also have two other units for rent, please ask us for further information. Modern bathrooms, kitchen and living room make the unit an ideal place to relax while exploring the region. The apartment is rented on a weekly basis or a three night minimum stay.

While staying with us you will be a short walk to several bakeries, butcher shops, bars, restaurants and other amenities all within the medieval town centre. In addition to wine tasting and sightseeing you can spend your days walking or cycling the many trails in the area the best of which run along the Canal Lateral à La Loire. There is also the opportunity to travel down the Loire by kayak or canoe.

La Charité-sur-Loire is an hour and 45 minutes south of Paris. The owners live a two minute walk from the unit and are always on hand to answer any of your questions or if you need help with your French. Please see our website for more information of activities in the area.

Hello, we are Byron and Kelly Harker from Vancouver on the West Coast of Canada. We have had the opportunity to travel widely over the years, and have always enjoyed returning to France. In 2003 we decided to sell our home in Vancouver and move to France. We discovered the delightful town of La Charité-sur-Loire in Burgundy and immediately fell in love with the town and the area. In 2004 we opened the first of our vacation rentals and currently have five such rentals in the centre of this medieval town. We enjoy the many festivals in town and the area throughout the year. We are close enough to Paris to 'pop up' for the day. We enjoy sharing our love of the area with our guests from all over the world.

Byron and Kelly Harker purchased this apartment in 2003

La Charité-sur-Loire is south of the rain and north of the heat and as a result has very enjoyable weather. Our vacation rentals are in the centre of town and you are able to walk out your front door and enjoy the many bakeries, cafes, restaurants and boutiques. The Loire River is two blocks away and it has lovely beaches and walking paths along the riverbank. There is canoeing and kayaking on the river. We are close the wine areas of Sancerre and Pouilly-sur-Loire where you can meet the wine makers and enjoy tasting their wonderful wines. The castles of the Loire Valley are a two hour drive from us and make an enjoyable day trip. La Charité-sur-Loire is becoming an art, book and music cultural centre and as such there are many festivals throughout the year.

This was our second enjoyable stay in this quiet apartment. As before we found it clean, well maintained and furnished, and the owners welcoming and very helpful but never intrusive. The town centre position made eating out in the evening very easy - no driving necessary! We had good meals at the Auberge de Seyr and the Auberge de la poule noire. Good local shops nearby and Supermarkets on the edge of town.

Great rental in a spectacular setting!

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation in Burgundy was everything we expected and more.
The property was easy to access (we flew into Orly and rented a car). The location of the unit was perfectly charming in a city filled with rich history. Our hosts, Byron and Kelly were beyond helpful and very knowledgeable regarding the region and history. At our doorstep we found restaurants, grocers, flower shops, bakeries etc. La Charite sur Loire is a charming little town.
The unit was clean and we were provided with toiletries and incidentals such as spices, coffee filters and laundry soap. We have rented vacation homes many times and this isn't always the case so we were very pleased. The wifi service was wonderful, allowing us to plan out day trips.
We highly recommend this vacation home and have plans to return with others.

our 1 week in the benedictine suite

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4, including 2 teenage daughters stayed in the benedictine suite for 1 week in July. The building and its history is just amazing for we Australians. Situated next to the church and in the grounds of the priory gave interesting views from every window. We were very comfortable though the kids chose to sleep on the 2nd rather than 3rd level due to the heat for a few nights. The main bed has a bed end which would be a problem for anyone taller than me who wants to stretch out (I'm 178cm). The kitchen had all the basic cooking utensils we needed. The wifi worked very well.
We enjoyed lazily kayaking down the river, riding the bikes available through Byron and Kelly, exploring the town of La Charite and attending the music festival that happened to be on while we were there.
We must make particular note about Byron and Kelly who were really helpful and generous hosts. We felt they went over and above what one would expect and made us feel welcome and comfortable. They seem to love being there and doing what they do.
So, overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to my friends and family.

Living with history

  • 5 of 5
The Benedictine Suite provides the perfect base for exploring the history and beauty of the surrounding countryside. The suite is immersed in the heart of the beautiful and richly cultural village of La Charite sur Loire. (Although charming and recently renovated it is not suitable for the elderly or disabled.) In every respect our stay in La Charite sur Loire exceeded our expectations.

Owner's Response: We are delighted you enjoyed your stay in La Charité-sur-Loire and our Benedictine Suite. It is true that our Benedictine is not suitable for people with mobility problems as it has two flights of stairs. We do have other vacation rentals in La Charité-sur-Loire with fewer stairs. We hope to see you here again soon!

Perfect Medieval Town, Perfect Apartment and Perfect Hosts!

  • 5 of 5
Choosing La Charite-sur-Loire and the Benedictine suite was totally by chance. My husband and I could not have been more pleased with our stay for our first trip to Burgundy. The apartment was a pleasant surprise and our hosts, Byron and Kelly made us very welcomed! I highly recommend them and would stay with them in the future.

A Memorable Decision!

  • 5 of 5
We recently enjoyed a 5 week trip to Italy and France with our two teenage children (15 and 16 years old.) We had prebooked all our accomodation prior to leaving Australia except for one week in France. So one evening during our stay in Venice we did an internet search on our trusty computer looking for apartments in Burgundy. By chance we happened on the listing for La Charite-sur-Loire. After emailing the owners with a number of questions and being very impressed with their prompt, helpful and friendly response we decided to book the Lucarne Suite from the 22nd - 29th of January. What a great decision! Not only is La Charite a wonderful place to stay, our hosts Kelly and Byron were fantastic, providing us not only with superb, warm accomodation, but with their very generous assistance and hospitality. We especially appreciated their advice on places to visit in the area, sharing drinks with them one evening, and Byrons personal tour of La Charite! So do not hesitate for one moment - book your stay with Byron and Kelly now. You will love it!
