Well appointed bathrooms with showers that had decent supply of hot water - beds also comfortable and kitchen that had a good stove that worked well to cook some of the best meat from the local area. I would recommend any of their rental properties.

“Wonderful holiday in interesting medieval village”

people found this review helpful

We are three retired ladies who have all been to France before but have never enjoyed or experienced such a wonderful holiday as our two and a half weeks stay in the Benedictine Suite in La Charite sur Loire. The lovely house in the heart of a most interesting town was well appointed and extremely comfortable. Its position enabled us to enjoy an easy walk to shops, cafes, restaurants - everything necessary to make our stay most enjoyable. Although centrally located it was extremely quiet except for the lovely sound of church bells next door chiming throughout the day.
We hired a car for one week and drove to some of the many interesting places in the area and for the other week and a half we took quite a few train trips from La Charite to other lovely towns/villages on the train line - a very pleasant and easy way to enjoy travelling through the countryside.
The owners, Kelly and Byron were extremely helpful, offering advice and prompt assistance whenever needed. We thoroughly enjoyed Byron's walking tour through the town soon after we arrived. Also a wonderful wine and cheese tasting evening in their 16th century cellar. Their knowledge of La Charite is extensive and their enthusiasm for this lovely village certainly was contagious. We would love to spend time there again.

The Benedictine Suite met and exceeded all our expectation on our recent three day stay. It is totally central to the ancient old town of La Charite sur Loire.
It had a wonderful ambience and the hosts Kelly and Byron Harker could not do enough to make us feel at home. They even had bike for our use. Simply excellent.

Kelly And Byron provide a comfortable oasis of calm and tranquility on the Loire.
They provide excellent beds, constant hot water, heat when needed, advice and assistance, local information as and when needed. Always just a text or phone call or email away.
Great People, providing a lovely old world place to stay, with all ( now that dishwasher is installed!) mod cons.

“Excellent stay in Charite sur Loire”

Kelly and Byron Harker are the most welcoming of holiday property owners. They care very much about the comfort of their guests and this is reflected in the high quality of the properties. The property is on three floors so you and your family need to cope well with stairs. All the doors fit, there's everything you need, they have guide books and amazing local knowledge. The plumbing supplies all the hot water you could need. They are looking into dishwashers so book now because once they have them you won't be able to get this place! We stayed right in the centre of Charite sur Loire which is lovely and incredibly easy walking distance to all the restaurants and sites. You look onto a medieval church and hear the bells chime but they stop at night which is great (and Bryon organised that too!) The little touches make staying there very special. From the minute you arrive the Harkers show you to the property, offer you a guided walk through town (take it, it was really interesting!) They know the best places to eat. We liked our hosts so much we invited them to dinner! It's like staying with friends who know what you like even before you arrive. Book now you won't regret it.

We stayed in the Benedictine suite for one whole week while the outside temperature plummeted and heavy rains were a daily occurrence. So it was all the more vital for us to be comfortably lodged in pleasant surroundings. This little medieval house was absolutely perfect and surpassed our expectations. Charmingly decorated, equipped with all necessities including wifi functioning smoothly, comfortable beds, great armchairs to relax in, well stocked bookshelves (where else could I have found novels by Somerset Maugham and SInclair Lewis that I hadn't read yet!) And the setting ! where else can you experience what it is like to open your shutters in the morning and find yourself just a few yards away from the Gothic sculpture of the basilica? We were also impressed at the way Kelly and Byron had painstakingly restored the building so that it seemed actually part of the monumental church complex. From a practical point of view, you are never left to your fate - if anything needs to be repaired or explained, Kelly and Byron are with you in a matter of minutes. Definitely a place I would return to and recommend enthusiastically!
