We have just got back from a week at Chateau de Charge with our 2 children (aged 4 and 1). We had a wonderful time mostly because of the hospitality of the owners, Charlotte and Jerome and their 2 children. We had to take our youngest child to A&E in the middle of the night and Charlotte came with me to translate and drive and I will always be grateful for her help. Despite the drama, this was one of our best stays in France for some time. The chateau is beautiful and you get all the luxury of staying at a top hotel with the freedom of self-catering. A guest kitchen is so helpful when travelling with small children who just want fish fingers but it is also nice to have the option of not cooking and Charlotte is a wonderful cook. The wines that Jerome stocks are excellent and we even brought some back with us. The setting just outside Chinon is beautiful, the rooms are smart, tasteful and very spacious, the swimming pool is lovely and the whole trip was just superb. I cannot recommend Charge highly enough and we will definitely return very soon.
