Chartres is, of course, one of the great European centres of religious art and history, and there can surely be no better way of immersing yourself in it than from a base in Maison Ailleurs. A former bishop's residence just a short distance from the cathedral, the residence oozes a deeply evocative sense of past splendours and ecclesiastical power, and you can almost feelthe presence of Bishop Fulbert from the moment you step into the courtyard from the street and make your way up the time-worn stairs. But this is by no means an ancient monument. The facilities are modern and Valerie has provided so many thoughtful comforts and conveniences to make your stay truly memorable. Any downsides? Well, the heating was only just sufficient on a very cold and wet weekend and the television obstinately refused to find any channels. But hey! you come here to find spiritual solace, and you get that in abundance.

I can not recommend this lovely B&B highly enough. Our hostess was welcoming and the continental breakfast was amazing. The room was beautifully decorated and the bed comfortable with crisp linens. We will be back!!!

From the front door, this home oozes tranquility and splendour. Our room was beautiful with little touches that made it seem homely; candles, coffee machine, milk in the fridge, tiny meringues, lovely toiletries, it seems Valerie has thought of everything! SO close to the cathedral, and Valerie has good recommendations for where to eat. At night you can lay in bed and listen to the cathedral bells, which are not loud enough to stop you sleeping extremely well! Breakfast was served in the garden, and Valerie provided me with homemade gluten free cake, as she is well versed in catering for those with gluten intolerance. We really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be back.

Chartres is a place to visit for two days at most. Amazing stained glass, but not much else. Sadly, maison ailleurs is the sort of place you want to stay for at least a week. It is almost perfection. A squirt of WD40 on one door and nationwide tea-making lessons is all it would take to be perfect. Every hotel and b&b owner should stay here and take a lesson on hospitality, service and cuisine.
