The Eure-et-Loir is home to two major rivers: the Loir and Eure. The reason people come to stay in hotels in Eure-et-Loir, however, is to see the royal châteaux and catch a glimpse of what life was like for the mistresses of the kings. Some visit the Château of Anet, built for Henri II’s mistress, Diane du Poitier; others pay a visit to the pilgrimage to the Château of Maintenon. Here, amidst its Renaissance and Medieval architecture, Louis XIV, the Sun King, kept and later secretly married his mistress, Madame Scarron. Others save their money by remaining in discount hotels. Eure-et-Loir, for them, is one place – Chartres.
You cannot see Chartres thoroughly in a weekend. Eure-et-Loir’s most beautiful city is home to the famous Chartres cathedral. This Gothic structure has a 13th century labyrinth on the nave floor. It holds the famous Veil of the Virgin relic in its apsidal Chapel. This is to say nothing of its vaulted ceiling, stained glass windows and 11th century crypt. In Chartres, there is also the Cellier de Loëns with attics acting as the Centre International du Vitrail, the Gothic St. Pierre Church and 17th century St. Aignan.
