Chartres Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


The capital of the “granary of France” as the Beauce region is known, Chartres has a spectacular cathedral, and is famed as a pilgrim destination and for its stained-glass windows of indescribable blue hues. Chartres is also rich in medieval houses, fine churches, narrow streets and stairways leading down to the banks of the River Eure. Wood-fronted houses, little bridges and gangways, gardens and vegetable plots on the river banks give the place a charm that is more rural than urban.
