What travelers to Chartres are saying
From its stunningly beautiful medieval church, and fine Chartres hotels to a hiking trail that tracks the lovely Eure, Chartres has something for everyone. The scenic city is located in the Centre-Val de Loire region of France, about 100 kilometres southwest of Paris. Because it is built on a hill, you do not need to stray from the comforts of your Chartres accommodation to enjoy stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

The city's best known sight, however, is the breathtaking Chartres Cathedral, known as La Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Chartres to locals. It is considered to be the epitome of French Gothic art. Construction of the lovely building began in 1145 but had to restart after a fire razed it to the ground in 1194. It then took 26 years to complete. The cathedral's porches are decorated with sculptures that date back to the 12th century, while its windows are covered with beautiful stained glass that dates to the 12th and 13th centuries. The massive nave is built in the Ogival style.
Once you manage to tear yourself away from the cathedral, visit the equally breathtaking La Maison Picassiette. The amazing masterpiece is the work of one Raymond Isidore, a middle-aged manual worker who took 26 years to painstakingly cover his family house and its garden with intricate mosaics made from paint, broken crockery, and sculpture.
The city is connected to Paris, site of the nearest airport by an excellent road and rail network. From your hotel in Chartres, get to its beautiful cathedral and other attractions by bus, taxi, rental car or on foot.
