La Charite-sur-Loire apartment description

Our Lucarne Suite is located on the third floor (2eme étage) and accessed via two flights of stone stairs in the medieval tower. This suite fronts on Grande Rue and has a private terrace at the top of the tower with a wonderful view of the church and the surrounding area. The suite (110 square meters) has central air-conditioning and heating with separately controlled units in each room. It has two bedrooms with two bathrooms. The upper bedroom has a queen size two metre bed; and the other on the main floor has two metre twin beds.

It is 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 (VRBO #200695), 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.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: 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.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              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.
