This was what brought me to France. It was all that I expected although I was disappointed that photos weren't allowed- although I do understand why. I found the house inspiring for my own mosaic work. Also Chartres itself is a lovely town, we liked the old buildings, the cathedral (which hubby thought was better than Notre Dame Paris) and the clean streets. This is a town best seen by just walking where your whim takes you. Also the train trip from Paris was great as well.
