Overview

La Charité-sur-Loire Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our Sanet Suite (77.5 square metre/834 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 minimum three night 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.

About Byron and Kelly Harker

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

What makes this apartment unique

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.

A Repeat Visit

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Sanet and once again found a realy comfortable apartment in a prime location. La Charite sur Loire and it's surrounding area is rich in history and culture. No matter how long you stay there you would feel you should come back for more. Once again we are grateful for not just the professional management of the apartment but the genuine friendliness of Kelly and Byron. Thankyou and yes, we would love to return.

We. Really enjoyed our stay. The appartment was just as described,and everything worked perfectly.The terrace was agreat bonus,we loved to dine there, or enjoy reading ,or aglass of wine.

La Charite is a wonderful town,good grocery store, and lots of interesting shops.Many great wine tasting opportunities nearby, many famous names!Bourges is a good location for more intense retail therapy! The pedestrian streets with little shops and timbered houses are a joy to explore.La Loire ,so beautiful with walking paths to enjoy.We stayed for a week ,not long enough! Thanks Kelly and Byron for this wonderful restoration.You did a beautiful job,still retaining so much character.We would love to return.

Sanet Suite

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous time in La Charite, the suite was as expected...spacious and clean. (Washing machine was a bonus). Kelly and Byron are very welcoming and extremely knowledgeable of the area. We would recommend this property to anyone. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at this gite. The apartment (Sanet) was large and well equipped--we wanted for nothing during our stay. The hosts are first class. As well as being very friendly, they were available to answer questions and give suggestions that assisted us in planning our week. Gite are located next to the church with a great view.

La Charite is well located for a visit to the Loire and Burgundy---it is a great "old world" experience--an "alive" but old French village---the hosts are expert on local history and gave us a wonderful tour.

Even better the third time around

  • 5 of 5

Having spent two great weeks at the Sanet suite the summer of 2012, we decided to return for the third time for Christmas. It was like walking right into a storybook. La Charite was decorated beautifully. We were in time to go to the Christmas fete. As usual Kelly and Byron gave us tips on where to go and what to see. All in all it was a Chistmas to remember and made us anxious to return.

Owner's Response: We were delighted to see you both back here again for a third time in 2012! Christmas is magical in La Charité-sur-Loire. The town and the merchants do such a great job decorating the city each year. We hope to see you back here again soon.

Wonderful stay in La Charite Sur Loire.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at Sanet Apartments La Charite Sur Loire. The gite was perfect for two couples with comfortable bedrooms and a roomy lounge. Having a kitchen and laundry was great. I must mention the outside terrace which was idea for drinks and nibbles. The location of the gite is ideal whether you have a car or not with the train station only 5 minutes walk. The hosts Kelly and Byron made us very welcome and their knowledge of the area was so helpful.

We will return again.
