This charming 2 bedroom property is the original dwelling place of the Benedictine monks and dates back to the 11th century. It has been authentically and painstakingly restored to reveal the stone walls and oak beams yet bringing it into this century with modern conveniences. All of the electrical, plumbing and gas lines are new, as are all of the plumbing fixtures including a gas-powered hot water on demand system.
The house is on city water and sewer with recent upgrades. The roof is in good shape and the very large grenier is waiting for your development (possible 2-3 bedrooms). There is also a very large cave to hold a magnitude of wine. With 4 levels and built on a slight grade, the main living and the garden facing the ramparts is on street level. The garage and cave in the back facing the priory is two levels below at the bottom level.
La Charité-sur-Loire is in the upper Loire Valley, just 2 short hours from Paris, on a train route and near the A7 autoroute. A village of about 6,000 inhabitants with a thriving weekly street market and many music, book and art festivals throughout the year.
As Burgundy is the gastronomic and wine capital of France, you will find many wine villages nearby including Sancerre and Pouilly-sur-Loire, with the Côte d'Or villages and the Champagne region about a 2 hour picturesque drive away.
