Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Chaumont-sur-Tharonne - La Charmois
Chateau / Country House, 7 Bedrooms, 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)
There's no better way to experience the glorious history of the Kings of France, and the Chateaux of the Loire Valley, than making the Chateau La Charmois your home, at least for a while!
This jewel of a private Chateau is completely fenced in and surrounded by 60 acres of manicured grounds, fields, forest, a lake & 2 ponds and 2 ancient farmhouses. There are walking paths, bicycles (helmets available), and fishing gear available for your use.
The Chateau has been lovingly restored to its former glory, furnished with antiques and period pieces normally seen only in museums, but with all the modern amenities & features for a relaxing as well as stimulating stay. The attention to detail will transport you back to the elegance of 'La Vie de Châtelain' that the Kings of France came to the Loire Valley to enjoy.
Most guests never want to leave the grounds, but should you wish to do so, the village is 8 minutes on foot from the Chateau. There, you'll find a bakery(where you can sample a delictable Tarte Tantin, famously from the area), cafes, gourmet restaurants, a grocery store, butcher shop, antique store and the beautifully restored 15 Century Saint-Etienne Church at its center (the bell tower can be seen from the Chateau's windows). The surrounding country side is beautiful and lends itself to walks or bike rides, especially to the near-by Centre Parcs recreational area with its pools, restaurants and day spa.
The Loire flows majestically through this castle-studded valley, listed as one of the UN World Heritage sites. When you're ready to venture further, just 25 minutes away by car or a delightful bike ride, is the Chateau Chambord, one of the most recognizable Chateaux because of its many turrets and Renaissance style. The Royal Town of Amboise might be next with King Francois I's Chateau perched on the hill, or maybe a visit to the darling of the Loire Chateaux, Chenonceau.
We offer our guests the possibility of several activities in and around the Chateau such as Food Market or Antique Tours, Winery visits & Wine Tasting, Drawing or Painting Seminars, Yoga Workshops & French Language Total Immersion Courses.
Live the dream and step back into France's Glorious Past while in Royal Residence at the spectacular Chateau La Charmois.
