Hotels in Chartres
In France's vineyard-filled Loire Valley, Chartres is a bustling, central city around 60 miles away from Paris. The city was under English rule for just over a decade during the 15th century, and was heavily bombed in World War II. Reconstruction of parts of Chartres places modern-style and newer buildings right next to examples of Regency architecture.
Architecture in Chartres
The city's main attraction is its cathedral, the Basilique Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Chartres. It's a UNESCO World Heritage Site, dating back to the 12th century. The west side of the cathedral has two spires, deliberately built in different styles.
If you visit the cathedral square when it gets dark, you'll see a coloured light display. The lights create interesting patterns across the building's French Gothic exterior.
A walk around Chartres will lead to plenty of old timber houses and ancient bridges.
This region of France produces plenty of delicious delights. The Loire Valley area is nicknamed ‘the garden of France', and Chartres is the granary. Expect to find rillettes, a shredded pate usually made with pork, and traditional fouace flatbread.
Chartres has developed a reputation for the high quality of its food and service in restaurants. The modernisation of the city is evident in the presence of McDonald's.
For adults, the local drink is ‘Eurélienne' – an artisan beer brewed in the nearby village of Chandres. It's notoriously difficult to find, with only a few select venues stocking it. Try the Madrigal Bar at the BEST WESTERN Le Grande Monarque Hotel, which has all four types: blonde, blanche, brune and rousse.
The Loire Valley
One of the valley's ‘Chateaux Trails' includes the cathedral at Chartres, taking in the Chateau of Maintenon and the neo-Gothic royal chapel at Dreux.
A cool climate in the Loire produces grapes – mainly white, but sometimes red – with a bright, refreshing taste. The valley's main exports are Muscadet, Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc.
Book a wine tasting experience at the Maison des Vins de Tours, which offers over 70 wines made in the area. If you'd like to have a look around first, entry to the centre is free.
‘Caves Touristiques' is the local wine cellar tourism network, with over a hundred estates signed up. It's aimed at those staying in hotels in and around Chartres.
