"We just returned from our second weeklong visit to Le Charmois (our first was in 2013). It is an amazing country estate. The inside of the home is comfortable, roomy, beautifully decorated, and contains every convenience you need. The outside is in a beautiful garden and forest setting that offers wonderful walks.
The location is two hours from Charles de Gaulle, and serves as the perfect base for exploring the Loire valley. The best chateaus are easy drives - Chenonceaux, Chambord, Cheverny, Azay Le Rideau, Villandry, and Sully sur Loire are just some of the highlights. Same is true for some beautiful towns - Orleans, Bourges, Blois, Loches, Gien, and others. A number of wineries and other sites are also nearby. Le Charmois is itself next to the town of Chaumont Sur Tharonne, which is quiet and charming.
If you decide against touring, and instead want to spend your stay enjoying the property, you will not be disappointed by the beautiful setting. But I imagine more people are likely to combine sightseeing with enjoying Le Charmois.
The folks managing the property are outstanding and very helpful with whatever you will need. This includes the wonderful housekeeper, Catherine (who also cooks if you like), to the owners and other liaisons who offer remote support.
All ages enjoy Le Charmois. We had grandparents, grandchildren, and the inbetween during our stays.
Again, do not miss a chance to stay here!"
