Peace and ancient beauty in the heart of Chartres, with an exquisite rose garden to wander round and delectable breakfasts

Read guest comments

A short stroll from the glorious cathedral is the home of the former bishop. Valérie and her husband, after a life of international travel, fell for its beauty and brought it back to life. Now this young family live in the right wing and the suites are in the left, up a wide stone stair: one in the original chapel, with a modern four-poster and dramatic stripes, one overlooking the garden (idyllic, walled and full of roses), and one on the second floor, elegant in dove greys and soft yellows. Find iPod docks, Nespresso machines, flawless kitchenettes, lovely linen. Breakfasts are beautiful, the parking is a boon.

  • Located in the historical town of Chartres, near to the cathedral, to the pedestrian quarter and to the commercial centre, we welcome you to this historical bishopric with a rose garden and with private parking.
  • Since 2008 the Chartres cathedral has been the target of a major renovation project due to finish in 2018. The renewed gothic features are a window into history as it returns bit by bit to its former self.
  • Located in the heart of the "Comestic Valley", during the warmer half of the year Chartres offers a night-time tour with numerous light shows thanks to the festival "Chartres en Lumières". This will allow you to discover the country in a different light.
  • Near to the cathedral and to the town centre, you can make the most of a moment of calm in the verdant square or under the shade along the edge of the river Eure; call it little Venice. .
  • Chartres is full of activities for the young and the old. Discover the Musée des Beaux Arts or the Maison Picassiette. Discover and make the most of the Odyssée, the largest aquatic complex of France.
  • Stroll or cycle through the historical centre and discover the magnificent château's of the region. The famous château de Maintenon is only 20 minutes from the town centre. Take a day trip to others such as Chateaudun, Versailles or Paris.

"The perfect B&B. Apart from it being a convenient stopover driving from Calais to the Lot (with private parking), everything about Maison Ailleurs exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the Bishop's room, which has the most wonderful WOW factor with its dramatic decor. Valérie, friendly and attentive without being intrusive, has oodles of style, which shows in the way she has masterminded the refurbishment of the whole building. Her breakfast was nothing short of exquisite. Highlights were the homemade brioche, yogurt and granola, plus the best scrambled eggs ever. Bravo Valérie!"

"Maison Ailleurs is an unforgettable historic building with first rate accommodation. Valerie is a charming and gracious hostess who ensures that you have everything you need, including booking our restaurant for dinner and ensuring that we had everything we needed for breakfast. The location is ideal with a 5 min walk to Chartres Cathedral and the city centre with it's restaurants etc. We plan to visit again. "

"After a quick swing through southern France, staying in four different Sawday's BnB's, we ended our trip with a night at Maison Ailleurs in Chartres. Although each BnB was wonderful in its own way, Maison Ailleurs ended up as our favorite. The combination of style (the brilliant Bishop's Room) and service (the delicious breakfast brought to our room) was unbeatable. There was space for our car, an easy walk into the heart of the old city and a quiet night's sleep at Maison Ailleurs. All around perfection."
