In the Loire Valley, I was looking for a peaceful location with a strong presence of nature and found le clos de la Chartrie, close to the château of Cheverny, an ideal place for me to do B&B in. The property is sourrounded by vineyards, sunflowers or wheat fields, meadows and horses. It is close to many of the Loire Valley châteaux, its fascinating gardens and right on a cycling route. Now, online booking available.
A charming and typical wine farn of the Sologne region, it has been restaured with ecological materials wherever possible: solar panels for hot water, hemp for insulation, lime coating and more. It is a wonderfully peaceful and fulfilling setting. Unfortunately and due to some health troubles, I no longer propose the table d’hôtes; but do not worry, there are several restaurants close by, of different prices and types; you won’t starve.
