in Chartres The city of Chartres is in the department of Eure-et-Loir, region Centre-Val de Loire, in south west France. It’s famous all over the world for its UNESCO world heritage listed cathedral and no wonder, it is an extraordinary and wondrous gothic masterpiece, a major pilgrimage site to this day. It is the reason why most people go to the city but there are plenty of other attractions that visitors will love in this town. Just an hour from Paris by train, you’ll discover the past in its cobbled rues. There are great restaurants, it’s close to the chateaux of the Loire, and hosts one of the best light shows in the world – making this a city break you should definitely pop on your bucket list.
