Description

Discover Château de Chargé, a luxurious haven of peace and tranquillity in France’s Loire Valley.

Château de Chargé is situated in the rolling farmland 8km south of Chinon between the hamlets of La Roche Clermault and Marcay.
Steeped in history, Château de Chargé was established in 1429 near La Roche Clermault, an outlying hamlet of the French town of Chinon. It was here that very same year that the town’s most famous visitor, Joan of Arc came to meet the King of France to obtain his support for her mission.

Discover Château de Chargé, a luxurious haven of peace and tranquillity in France’s Loire Valley.

Château de Chargé is situated in the rolling farmland 8km south of Chinon between the hamlets of La Roche Clermault and Marcay.
Steeped in history, Château de Chargé was established in 1429 near La Roche Clermault, an outlying hamlet of the French town of Chinon. It was here that very same year that the town’s most famous visitor, Joan of Arc came to meet the King of France to obtain his support for her mission.
Château de Chargé offers 4 beautiful cottages set in the main château or within the outbuildings around the main courtyard. Each cottage may be rented indicvidually or as a whole, therefore perfect for large families or group of friends travelling together.

The Chateau's garden provides an ideal relaxing space exclusively for the guests to enjoy and includes an outdoor heated swimming pool and a childrens’ play area with slides, swings, climbing wall and sandpit. The pretty landscaped lawn and terrace is a great place for guests to relax and to sunbathe. An enclosed paddock houses a small herd of black sheep, a goat and a donkey.
The rear garden contains a number of established trees including a Gingko and a Cedar of Lebanon, thought to be around 200 years old.  There are also ruins of a 17th century chapel in the garden, now a vegetable plot. The attractive courtyard to the front of the property is fully enclosed and provides an additional area for enjoying breakfast or supper on the terrace and charting the course of the occasional hot air balloon! Children will find a selection of toys and tricycles, and may collect eggs daily from the hen house.

Wine was produced at Château de Chargé since 1650.  Although the Chateau no longer produces and bottles their own wines, they have developed an extensive range of 40 Loire Valley wines (Red, White, Rosé and Sparkling) for guests to try and buy including the remaining bottles of the last production of Château de Chargé red produced in 2005 and 2006.

For wine enthusiasts (and enthusiastic amateurs) the Chateau offers free wine tastings and the opportunity to visit the two hundred year old vaulted cellars. By arrangement,  visits to wine producers in the area accompanied with a local bilingual guide can also be organised.
