Recommended by a friend, read the reviews & decided to go.
Chateau Charly a truly wonderful place. Have been back a week & just planning when to go again.
Key features for us was the beautiful setting, wonderful spacious rooms, super decor and great host.
Swam in the pool, which is set in the orchid, it was great, went for some runs in the village - just picturesque.
All the glowing reviews on T.A. are fully justified. I can not recommend this place high enough. It's very easy to get to from Paris, we went by train, it took two hours - great train service. Booked our tickets through www.raileurope.co.uk & of course Eurostar to Paris. We were picked up in Nevers and driven to Charly.
There is also lots to do nearby - Charly is actually on the edge of the Loire Valley - beautiful gardens and the most amazing picturesque French villages. It's best to speak with the team at Charly and get their recommendations on the options available for the time of the year.
The owner Paul - could not have made us feel more welcome, a very generous spirited person and just very relaxed about everything, with a great sense of humour!
One final point - Charly has its own wine - comes from Sancerre. Pre dinner drinks in the garden, with a glass of Rose' in my hand, was a touch of heaven!
