Such a good choice

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful week in La Charite. The sun shone every day from a deep blue sky, it was warm, this part of Burgundy is absolutely beautiful and we so enjoyed staying in your gite and dining out on the roof terrace overlooking those wonderful higgledy-piggledy rooftops and ruminating on people and events from the past. I would love to think that one day someone will buy the house at number 13 and restore it to its former glory. Days went by when we didn't hear another English voice which meant we had to take a dictionary everywhere with us so that we could understand and speak only in French, it was great. La Charite is a town which envelops you in the past, the church is beautiful, the views of the Loire are stunning, and we were very pleased with our accommodation. My husband had a great time riding his bike on quiet country roads, we visited the great market at Cosne s/Loire and bought wine in Sancerre, we walked by the river and explored local villages, but perhaps the highlight was our trip to Bourges which was truly lovely. A special thanks also to Madame Genty for her help (and for taking me to pick fresh strawberries when we first arrived). The blueberries I was unable to find anywhere are called 'myrtilles' in France. I'd also like to thank Patricia for the very interesting information she gave us on the history of some of the properties in the town. We were very sorry to leave and hope to return again to Burgundy in the not too distant future.

Très joli et authentique

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons séjourné au gîte des remparts avec nos deux enfants durant 2 semaines au mois d'août et nous avons réellement apprécié l'accueil - avenant et peu invasif, l'attention des propriétaires et leurs conseils pour les visites, la fonctionalité du gîte et son emplacement idéal avec une vue splendide sur le clocher du Prieuré.Nous y reviendros cet hiver afin de profiter de l'ambiance pré-Noel de la cité La Charité-sur-Loire et loger au berceau de l'art médiéval, dans le chaleureux gîte des Remparts.

Delightful Gite and charming town on the Loire

  • 5 out of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in La Charite and in Gite des Remparts.
The Genty's were very helpful and everything went very well, once we had mastered the novelty of activating French washing machines and door locks on day one!
The town is charming and we were beginning to feel like locals after a couple of weeks. We tried four of the possible restaurants, the boulangeries and most of the bars. Auberge de Seyr was our favourite restaurant although the Black Hen was very good, as was St Pa over the bridge. The boulangerie opposite the main square was our favourite.
We visited Babette and Evas for an excellent Tango night although skipped a "spontaneous writing" event. We also went to various concerts and guided tours in town as well as visiting several surrounding towns and villages. We did a couple of bike rides on the Loire route and discovered excellent cafe/bistros going in both directions, on the canal at Beffe and downstream about 6 kms from town at a most unusual farm/gite on the cycle path.
We will be recommending it all to our friends and hope to return.

La Charité sur Loire - Burgundy - Excellent wine region, including the famous Sancerre and Pouilly sur Loire. If you are looking for quality gites in the middle of France set alongside the peace and quiet of the Loire river and in a centre of festivals and cultural activities that take place all year round, then look no further. If you seek first-class self-catering holiday accommodation our gites offer luxurious, holiday rental apartments for discerning holiday makers in this the cultural heart of France on the Loire.

From the Roman name of Seyr (possibly, 'Sun City') to La Charite sur Loire. Now known as the Town of the Book and the Word…

Would you like to spend your holidays, in the heart of this historic town, seconds away from the shops, restaurants and the numerous activities that include festivals of art, music, books and cultural events that go on throughout the year?

Just a five to six hours drive from Calais to La Charite sur Loire via the A26 and A1 auto-route and one hundred and fifty miles South of Paris, by the A6 and on the easy quiet A77 motor-way direct to the town, or by train from Paris to the centre of the town, the Benedictine Prieury and the town of La Charite sur Loire which surrounds it, are built, as an amphitheatre, along the longest river in France. It is its geographic situation, its spiritual importance and its cultural richness that make La Charité a destination of choice.

The town is surrounded by some of the most famous vineyards such as Pouilly or Sancerre and by the majestic state-owned forest of the Bertranges. You will be able to take for long interesting walks in the vast nature reserve of the Loire, go canoeing, fishing or follow the touristic pre- established cycle routes or simply stroll or sit on the sandy beach along the shore of the Loire.

Shops: Between tradition and originality - The town offers a good selection of small shops, boutiques, bakers, confectioners, traiteurs selling prepared dishes to take away, local specialities, a weekly market on Saturday morning and also the main supermarkets.

There is a great choice of pizzerias, cafés and restaurants for all tastes from exclusive restaurants to family orientated places or even café-théatre style eateries.

An innovative town which gained the reputation of “town where things happen, ville qui bouge…”

Since the year 2000, a number of second-hand book sellers and artisans have settled in the old parts of La Charité giving the town a reputation of town of the book and more specifically, town of the word.

All year around, lots of events such as book fairs, shows, the Festival of the Word, Piano and Blues festivals, the gastronomic fair awaits you in this little town which cannot wait to be culturally yours.
