Presentation of hotel Timhotel Chartres Cathédrale / 4*
Chartres is the Beauce region, the country's bread basket. It's Rodin calling the Cathedral of Chartres ‘'The Acropolis of France''. It's Péguy singing "Two thousand years of labour have made this earth a reservoir for the new ages." Chartres is the charm of a regional capital with its green-roofed cathedral like no other. The Eure winds its way through this appealing country where you'll discover a city not far from Paris bordered with stone bridges and mills. The Timhotel Chartres Cathédrale will immerse you in this universe of light and fragrance.
The Timhotel Chartres Cathédrale is advantageously located three minutes away from the SNCF train station. Offering private parking, room service and a lovely garden, this hôtel de charme reserves a calm welcome for you in your choice of three languages. Each room has its own ambiance and offers individually-controlled air conditioning, upscale bedding and a view of the cathedral (executive rooms). The inviting lounge with its fireplace, the buffet breakfast served at any time and the bar open all night will delight you. The hotel can also host your business meetings.

Timhotel Chartres Cathédrale: Local Highlights
The Timhotel Chartres Cathédrale is in the heart of the old city. Chartres, which has been closely tied with its rich cereal-growing countryside since the Middle Ages, will reveal its many beautiful old buildings to you (29 de la Rue Chantault or Place de la Poissonnerie, in particular). Visit the medieval Rue de l'Écuyer and observe the Tertres, these inclined paths, unique to Chartres, which connect the upper and lower parts of the city. You'll also want to discover the banks of the Eure, dotted with picturesque little bridges, wash-houses and mills, as well as the Saint-André church, which, with its feet in the water, has become an exhibition centre. Churches are numerous and beautiful in Chartres: don't forget to see the Saint-Pierre and Saint-Aignan churches, too.
Timhotel recommends the following restaurants: Tomate et Piment, le Bistrot de la Cathédrale and l'Esprit Gourmand.
Notre-Dame-de-Chartres Cathedral: Gothic Perfection
Representing human creative genius and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Notre-Dame was an architectural model that guided the construction of several other Gothic cathedrals. Its influence has been global. The large rose window, with a diameter of 13 metres, is its largest. Its 3,500 statues, 181 of which represent the Virgin Mary, and its depiction of 9,000 biblical characters, give Notre-Dame-de-Chartres universal artistic and theological value. With a transept measuring 63 metres in length and 9 sculpted portals, Chartres has beaten many records. Its royal portal is unique. Other one-of-a-kind features are the stained glass windows dating back to the 13th century, and the symbolic labyrinth covering the floor. An in-depth study has demonstrated that the building is based on simple geometric shapes resulting from the use of a ruler, a compass and a straight-edge. This major European pilgrimage site remains an emblematic part of French heritage, as pointed out by the writers Huysmans and Hemingway or by the artists Corot and Soutine.
