My girlfriend and I stayed in one of the impeccably decorated rooms for a long weekend in a beautiful, relaxing environment. Charlotte and Jerome were wonderful hosts – Charlotte cooking delicious food, Jerome teaching us all about the local wines, and both bending over backwards to ensure our stay was a good one. The nearby town of Chinon is picturesque...

It was just what we needed. Charlotte cooked lovely food every night. The pool was heated and the rooms luxurious. Our children loved it. Will definitely go back, if it's not fully booked.

Both the Chateau de Charge and its hosts, Jerome and Charlotte, are equally charming, warm, interesting and hospitable. Together they have invested both their time, money and passion into renovating this chateau with impeccable taste and and timeless beauty.

This is an amazing castle with amazing hosts and a very laid back atmosphere. Charlotte and Jerome went above and beyond for us and turned this quick city escape into a gem among short get away vacations. We sat down at the dinner table with other guests from Australia and South Africa and spent the most entertaining night one could...

We stayed here with our five month old daughter last summer and it was the perfect trip for us. Everything we needed was provided: cot for our daughter, baby monitor, a kitchen that was open to guests with microwave for sterilising and pureeing food. The owners also very kindly offered to listen to our baby monitor a couple of times...

We genuinely enjoyed our stay with Charlotte & Jerome. They were informative in all ways needed, and Jerome went out of his way to help direct us to the various destinations we wanted to visit in the Loire Valley...chateau, restaurants, farmers markets.....even to printing out MapQuest directions at times. Charlotte provided delicious dinner when requested by noon, and Jerome always...

My husband and I spent part of our Honeymoon at the Chateau de Charge this past week. Jerome and Charlotte make you feel like welcome family instantly, but you may be too busy admiring the tastefully restored, crazy-old Chateau to realize your good luck at being their guests. The food is excellent-Charlotte is a great cook, and Jerome's love and...
