La Charité-sur-Loire Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

The apartment (60 square metre/600 sq feet) is comprised of recently remodeled suite of rooms, with a private outdoor patio, in a 15th century medieval building. The suite is located within the remnants of the ancient walls of the medieval town centre.

We have made every effort to maintain the antiquity of this charming one bedroom unit during renovation. In the same complex we also have a studio apartment on the ground floor for rent, please ask us for further information about our other three two bedrooms apartments. Modern bathroom, kitchen and living room make the unit an ideal place to relax while exploring the region. The apartment is rented on either a weekly basis or for a two 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.

GREAT LOCATION, LOVELY APARTMENT, CHARMING HOSTS

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in La Charite Sur Loire. It's a wonderful little medieval village in the Loire/Burgundy part of France. We particularly loved the Meneau Suite -- it was perfect for us. Byron and Kelly have thought of everything -- the kitchen is well stocked, the bed is really comfortable and we loved the towel warmer! We think this suite was even better than the pictures and listing information portrayed. Byron and Kelly made us feel very welcome, provided an amazing amount of information on the area both before and after we arrived. We would highly recommend this suite as well as the others that Byron and Kelly have listed -- we viewed each of them. This little village has fabulous restaurants, great shops, wonderful old book stores and lots of history! We were happy to come home to our suite after long days sight seeing in the area.

AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
This 15th century gite is a jewel in a charming medievel village in the Burgundy region of France. The owners are lovely and treat their guests like family. They are knowledgable of the area and it's history and can offer many suggestions for places to visit. The gite is comfortable and contains everything one would need for a prolonged or a short stay. La Charite is located along the train line which made visiting other cities extremely easy to do. I highly recommend this location to anyone travelling in this region of France.

WHAT A GREAT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the apartment for a week in early December and had a fantastic time. The town of La Charite-sur-Loire is amazing- a beautiful medieval town nestled on the banks of the Loire River. Every scene you take in has a picture-postcard quality to it- the character and charm of this place has to be experienced to really appreciate it. The town is a very easy two hour train ride from Paris Bercy and the La Charite station is within easy walking distance from the apartment. The town is medieval yet everything you need in the modern world is available to you- markets (the Saturday market is amazing), shops, restaurants of various types- all withing walking distance of the apartment. The people we encountered in town were friendly, gracious and polite- we are not French speakers, but that did not pose a problem at all- people were so accomodating that overcoming the language barrier just became another enjoyable part of the stay. The town itself is easily explorable on foot if you are moderately fit. We also rented a car for a couple days to explore some of the wonderful Loire Valley- highly recommended and easy- you can pick up a rental in Nevers, just a quick train ride away.

The apartment itself is exactly as described, but like the town, better when you experience it in person. Byron and Kelly have done a really nice job of taking this old building and renovating it into a roomy and comfortable place to call home during your stay. The blending of some of the original features with modern conveniences is very well done. The location of the place is perfect- you are literally within a few minutes walk of everything within the old town, but the apartment is very private and quiet- we had no trouble sleeping at night! The apartment was spotlessly clean, and there were no nasty surprises- everything worked and the place is well-supplied with pretty much all you need to move right in- dishes, silverware, wine glasses (!!!), etc.

As for the hosts Byron and Kelly- they were simply great. They are friendly, welcoming and helpful, with a wealth of information on both the town itself as well as the surrounding areas (which came in very handy when planning our day trips in the car). Being that they live in town, they are close by if you need them for anything but in no way are they intrusive of your privacy. Again- great hosts- as good as any we've met in years of using VRBO in locations around the world. We plan on coming back!

A COMFORTABLE STAY

  • 4 of 5
The apartment is charming, with bags of character, and comfortably furnished. The kitchen is clean and well stocked, with a welcome coffee machine and full working cooker. The bed is comfortable, though the room could do with a light source in the wardrobe/chest of drawers area. Very nice bathroom, spacious and clean. The terrace is good for eating al fresco. The sitting room area is comfortable, and although the TV/CD facilities aren't the best they do work. The apartment is very well situated, just a short walk away from the centre of lovely La Charite and all its boulangeries, pharmacy, grocery stores and gift shops. Very friendly and helpful, yet discreet, hosts in Byron and Kelly.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of your stay in our Meneau Suite. We very much appreciate our guests feedback. The low source of light in the back corner of the bedroom is a design flaw and we will be adding another light. We do not have a CD player in the Meneau Suite, nor do we state that we have a CD player in either our website or any of our advertising. We do have free WIFI, a DVD player and a TV that has many channels including BBC News, Sky News, CNBC and CNN. We hope to see you here again in the future!
