Eure-et-Loire, France

Eure-et-Loire holiday houses and cottages, France

Eure-et-Loir is a French department in north-central France, named after the Eure and Loir rivers. The department is located in the Centre region (Val de Loire). The most important tourist attraction is the cathedral of Chartres, with its magnificent stained-glass windows. The department falls into a few different areas: Le Perche to the west around Nogent-le-Rotrou; the Drouais to the north around Dreux; and Beauce. The Beauce is a fruitful plain and known as the granary of France. There are several rather charming traditional working windmills to see when you stay in Eure-et-Loire holiday rental houses or cottages. The area of Bonneval in the south of the department is traversed by canals.

Chartres, the capital of the Eure-et-Loir, is built on the left bank of the Eure River. The town is best known for the Cathedral of Chartres, considered to be the finest Gothic cathedral in France - a must see when renting a self-catering holiday home in Eure-et-Loir, France. Its historical and cultural importance is recognized by its inclusion on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. It was built in 1205 and its construction took 66 years. Chartres has also been a site of Christian pilgrimage since the Middle Ages.

The Eure River, which divides into three branches at Chartres, is crossed by several ancient bridges, and is fringed in places by remains of the old fortifications. The steep, narrow streets of the old town contrast with the wide, shady boulevards which encircle it and divide it from the suburbs. When you rent a holiday cottage in the Eure-et-Loire be sure to visit La Maison Picassiette, a house decorated inside and out with mosaics of chards of broken china and pottery.

Châteaudun is another delightful town to explore when you visit Eure-et-Loire. Châteaudun is 50 km south-southwest of Chartres; its charming château is one of the department’s main attractions and is known for being the first on the road to Loire Valley, from Paris.

The town of Illiers-Combray is featured in the works of Marcel Proust (but referred to as Combray in the Proust novels). Swann Park, found in Illiers-Combray was designed by the author's uncle.
