This amazing home, parts of which date back to the 14th Century, offers three large rooms (which are really like mini apartments) that have been tastefully renovated by the owners, to capture the sense of history to which this house belongs but to also to provide the comforts and conveniences that travellers nowadays like to enjoy: great bathrooms, kitchenettes, coffee makers, and fine furnishings. Apart from the pleasure of staying in such fine and interesting surroundings, our stay was made even more enjoyable by the hostess, Valerie Genique, who was both gracious and unobtrusively attentive to our every need. Each morning Valerie brought us a breakfast that was beautifully presented with healthy options and some special little treats. Valerie even took us for a stroll through her French garden, with its patterns, archways and hedges. The property is only a few minutes walk away from the magnificent Chartres Cathedral, and the centre of town and provides off street parking for your vehicle. The Palace of Versailles is only a 45-60 minutes drive away. What more could you want? Only more time to lengthen you stay. We hope we can return some day.
