Recent Centre-Loire Valley reviews

  • Incredible experience

    "I cannot thank Diane enough for making this house available to my friends and me for our recent vacation. It is warm, welcoming and perfect as a base to explore the French countryside or to just sit and relax. It is well stocked with dishes and cooking supplies, towels, linens and everything you could need to have a six course meal or just cook up some scrambled eggs for breakfast. There were plenty of bedrooms and the beds were comfortable. It was great that we each could have our own bathroom. There is a great book she has prepared with recommendations about activities, restaurants and just general info. We were fortunate that Diane was in residence in her portion of the property so were able to spend some time with her. Her restaurant recommendations were superb, particularly L'Auberge de l'Ecole about 20 minutes away. We has an incredible meal served by a friendly and helpful staff. Meusnes is not a hotbed of activity but the nearby town, Selles Sur Cher has a lot to offer including a great weekly market, cafes and restaurants. From our base we took daily excursions to le Chateau de Chenonceau, the Zoo Beauval (not to be missed), Blois, Tours, and several other areas. The drive through the French countryside was beautiful and not to be missed. The house was easy to get to from Paris. We rented a car in Paris and drove down using the GPS I had brought from home. No problems, not hard getting out of Paris and a fairly easy 2.5 - 3 hour drive. This is a great house for friends to share or for a family or an extended family vacation. It would work well with multi generations. I would love to be able to stay for a month, hosting various friends to visit and really becoming part of the French country life. Maybe when I retire..... Thank you, Diane"

  • Super convenient lovation. Lovely house.

    "We ate dinner outside in the garden each night. Rented bikes for three days from a shop in the town. Easy rides to Chambord and Cheverny with bike paths not far from the bike rental shop. Patisserie, boulangerie, and epicerie right around the corner from the house as well as several restaurants. Great location! The house is well equipped for cooking. Two modern bathrooms were fine for six adults. And again, the location in Bracieux is so convenient. The entire village came out for a fete on our last night in Bracieux! The party wasn't for us, but it was wonderful to experience the food, music, dancing and friendly people."

  • One of a kind experience - do not miss this

    "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!"
