Had a fabulous week at the Chateau, if you're looking for some time out in splendid surroundings, then I can highly recommend Chateau Charly. The Chateau is stunning and there is everything there that you will need. We chose to provide our own cooking during our visit but, I know that Philip and Claire can provide a chef should you require. A great place for a family get together. Highly recommended.
A beautiful place with big rooms, great decor and a nice pool. Very relaxing
Super site et un accueil digne de ce nom !
Je recommande en amoureux ou en groupe !
Stayed in a family party of 16 over new year 2017. Great directions and with arriving on New years eve, the owner was waiting by the main gate to great us as the rest of our party had arrive the day previous. The quality of the room finishes, furnishings, bedding, towels....... all outstanding. We had arranged for provisions ahead of our arrival, all were present and correct , even the ham was premium quality. Fabulous grounds... stylish deluxe country residence.
At the owners' suggestion we visited Bourges which is 15 minutes away for a cosmopolitan array shops, bars and restaurants while also being steeped in history. The gardens even in winter were impressive but the jewel in the crown has to be the cathedral nestled in napolenonic architecture.
Recommended, recommended - Can't wait to go back
