La Charite-sur-Loire cottage description

Maison Vauyon is an authentically restored stone cottage. It is located at the end of a quiet lane in the medieval quarter of this historic town.
Staying in this village is like taking a step back in time, meet the friendly locals and enjoy the fact that you can virtually walk to every amenity.
Wake up to the smell of fresh baked croissants and locally roasted coffee, as these scents seem to permeate the air.
Our maison has been restored from top to bottom, some of the features include: a traditional french-style kitchen with modern, gourmet stainless-steel appliances. This consists of a 5 burner gas range with rotisserie, large frost-free fridge, dishwasher and coffee machine.
The main floor bathroom has heated tile floors and a generous walk-in Italian shower with hot water on demand. Heated towel bars and an antique cabinet with a copper sink complete the look. The extra capacity washer and dryer are also located in the bathroom.
The dining and living area will seat four comfortably, with a double (140cmx190cm) pull out sofa-bed.
The back has a private terrace to enjoy alfresco dining and your morning coffee.
The upstairs master bedroom has a comfortable queen-size (160cmX200cm) bed and heirloom furnishings. With the ladies in mind...there is a powder room toilet and sink off of the bedroom.
This home also has the luxury of its own private wine cellar for you to store your favourite vintage during your stay.
From luxurious linens, to top-end cookware, vintage dishes and quality utensils...every detail has been carefully considered.
Just bring your suitcase!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: My husband and I grew up in the Vancouver, British Columbia area. Like many, we have always had a love for travel. In the Spring of 2006 we decided to take an extended vacation to France. We sold our home, basically put our memories in a box and said good-bye to our three adult children. It didn't take long to unwind and to relax into the French lifestyle. The 'break' soon turned into months and before long it was apparent that we wanted to come back here every year for an extended stay. That is when we started thinking about co-ownership and our version of a home-share 'My vacation home in France' was born. The village of La Charite-sur-Loire fit all of our criteria. We purchased a few homes and went to work restoring them. We developed a business plan and sold the shares in the house under a Canadian company. When the house is not being enjoyed by its owners, it is available for rental.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      La Charité is a medieval village set in the middle of wine country on the Loire. A music and book town by theme with many concerts and festivals. Sancerre, Pouilly-sur-Loire and other quaint wine hamlets are all at your doorstep. Renaissance and Medieval castles dot the countryside and are as near as a 10 min. drive. You can even visit 'Guedelon' and observe first hand the construction of a 13th century chateau. Cycling here is gentle and easy with bike paths following the Loire or quiet country roads leading you through the vineyards and sunflowers to picturesque villages like 'Apremont-sur-Allier' listed as one of the most beautiful villages of France. Cyclo-rail is another option this uses carts on the old rail tracks taking you over the river from Cosne to Sancerre. You can rent a canoe and paddle down the river to the next town, get out, have lunch and a wine tasting, be picked up by your guide and be brought back to La Charité all for about 12 euros (not including lunch) If gaming is your thing, there is a casino about 15 min away, or check out the F 1 race track at Magny Cours just 35 min away. If a slower pace is what you are after, maybe you would like a little antiquing, every village in the area has an annual 'Brocante' and town fair on the week-ends, sometimes like the 'frog festival 'in 'Mesves' in May or the fair of specialty foods and wines of the region' Salon du Gout' in La Charité May 6-8. Golf, swim, walk, hike, cycle or drive; the adventures are waiting here for you.
