At the crossroads between Brittany, Normandy & the Loire Valley, the two steeples of Chartres Notre-Dame Cathedral rise majestically from the Beauce plaine like a mirage. The cathedral is an unrivalled medieval splendour, capturing the attention of the beholder. Beneath its flying buttresses beats the pulse of the old town. Winding streets with fascinating names, lined with old houses, steps that lead you down to the River Eure. (extract from Chartres Tourist Office booklet)

"Just a note to say thank you for your kindness, your welcome & your smooth coordination of our multiple arrangements with your organization during our stay in Paris. Your chauffeur guides were all on time, professional, and friendly. The day trips to Chartres & Versailles & to Vaux le Vicomte, Fontainebleau & Barbizon were amazing! Also, your dinner recommendations were simply perfect.
We had a more complicated situation than usual as we needed to accomodate my mother's limitations, and you made a beautiful trip possible for our whole family.
Thank you for absolutely everything!
