Tim Sullivan recommends Chateau Charly Sep 2019

Had a wonderful week with friends in the magnificent Chateau Charly. A lovely place to relax (by the heated swimming pool, in the sumptuous rooms and the very well appointed kitchen - not to mention strolling round the extensive grounds!). Hosts Phil and Claire could not have been more welcoming and have provided copious notes about things to do and places to see. Such was the relaxed atmosphere (and the heat!) we hardly felt the need to leave the chateau. Our suite was so grand, that it was even hard to leave the bedroom!

Lynda Fogg recommends Chateau Charly Sep 2019

An absolute treasure of a place to stay with attentive hosts making sure our trip was comfortable and stress free. It’s a home from home with the added delight of the sun, relaxing pool and sitting out of an evening with friends and wine. I can’t wait to go back again and enjoy the nearby markets and small community which surrounds the Chateau. Thank you Phil and Claire.

Peterflute, Cambridge, 5 Star, August 2019 

What a hidden gem! All the fotos of this Chateau do not do the place justice. From the minute you enter the gates and see this magnificent Chateau, glowing in the sunshine at the end of a sweeping drive, you know you are in for a treat. Our wonderful hosts. Claire and Phil greeted us and gave us a tour of the main building and grounds. The interior is exquisitely appointed. All the rooms are large and meticulously clean. The bedrooms are huge and comfortable without being over-fussy. The bathroom - lion clawed bath and walk-in shower - what more could you ask for after a hard day sitting beside the spotlessly clean and well-maintained outdoor pool. 


There's plenty of places within an hour to explore close by, so if sunworshipping isn't your thing -like me- Go to Bourges and wander around this medieval city, All in all, Chateau Charly is an experience I'll never forget and one I hope to revisit.
