B&B in or around Chartres

by timbo2410

Hello all, my wife and I are planning a trip in May and want a nice B&B to stay in for one night. Anybody know of a nice one. It doesn't have to be in the heart of the city, as long as it's comfortable, has good food (and perhaps a bottle of wine or two).

haha I actually looked at that one not half an hour ago. It hasn't got any rooms available for the period of May though. It did look quite nice.

This may be a bit too far away from Chartres ( about 25 miles) - we made a second stop there for an overnight stay - the last was about 4 years ago and the food was excellent on both occasions.

There are a number of Public/Religious holidays in May which might account for heavy booking on some dates -

1st Labour Day
8th Victory Day
13th Ascension Day
23rd Pentecost
24th Whit Monday

Do you know the logishotels.com
or chambresd'hotes.com
May be worth a look....

Hey. in april, my mother and i will be staying here in Chartres. http://www.maison-st-yves.com/
Not a B&B, but very interesting spot. Check the reviews on tripadvisor.com or on VT. Nothing fancy, but a really nice setting.

Re: B&B in or around Chartres

Thanks for all the help everybody. I've just looked up that old monastry in Chartres and your right, it is a very interesting spot to stay the night. It's also close to everything and it's pretty cheap as well. I think we may have just found our overnight accomodation :-)
Thankyou so much for the help. Have a great day :-)

Travel Tips for Chartres

Magnificent Chartres!

by shrimp56

The Cathedral in Chartres -- the awkwardly mismatched towers speak little of the glory that is inside.
.
The picture is of the central tympanum over the main entrance to the cathedral. Standing inside the cathedral and taking in the beautiful blue light from the stained glass windows.

A little Story and Architecture

by Toyin

A fire actually destroyed the cathedral completly in 1194 except the south tower and the south steeple. The North Tower, if you could observe in the picture is slightly different in architecture.

The fa├žade of the main entry called the Royal Portal and the beautiful window over this entry was rebuilt within only 39 years (1194-1233) in gothic style.

The Origins of the Danse Macabre

by hquittner

In the 14C European humanity was beset by intense widespread random death from rampaging war and pillage, plague and famine. As these events subsided in the 15C, the only places of social congregation (and amusement and distraction) were churches and some fairs. From before Roman times and continuing today, the living are exploited by exhibitions of death and mayhem (virtual or real) for a variety of purposes. In the mid 15C a popular poem appeared "The Danse Macabre" which laughed at the fact of unpredictable death for all. This was at the advent of the printing press and it was widely distributed and wood cut illustrations were also sold. The Church exploited the popular taste with Sermons and there were illustrative "plays" or "dances" on the church parvis. In a few cases the material of the poem was illustrated on the Church Walls. This must have appealed to the general populace who could delight in the equality of the frailty of all men, from the Pope (with a Tiara) the Emperor (crowned), bishop(mitred), and the various others by their dress or instruments down to the baby in the crib. Death as a skeleton carrying a scythe, pops up among the characters. This should not be confused with the "Dance of Death" , a Medieval graveyard superstition in which the dead arise before midnight and dance before going out to claim new victims to join their club.

See the Ruined St. Andre

by hquittner

Down the stairs of the very steep slope behind the Cathedral is the River Eure. Just above its bank is the decayed Romanesque Abbey Church of St. Andre (12C). The large nave is intact and has thick local stone columns with Corinthian capitals and a flat wooden roof. A fine chapel has ribbed vaulting with central bossing(16C) and stone tracery large windows. The church has fallen away, from the choir onward, and has been walled off at this point. The defect can be studied from outside by crossing the Eure (see our Walk Travelog). It only takes a few minutes

Enclos de Loens

by Tom_Fields

This 13th century house was once property of the diocese of Chartres, where the clergy stored their grain and wine (used in communion services). Today, it's a museum of stained glass windows, called the Centre international du Vitrail. A prime example of late medieval architecture.
