Capital of Light and Perfume
Located close to Paris and the Châteaux de la Loire, Chartres benefits from an international fame thanks to its Cathedral, listed in the UNESCO world heritage. Chartres is also famous for its amazing stained glasses, the Light show every evening from April to October, and its importance in the perfume industry with the Cosmetic Valley (Guerlain, Lolita Lempika…). Chartres is the capital of light and perfume. During your stay in the city, you will enjoy walks in the old town, in the several gardens along the river l’Eure, visits of the numerous churches, and some shopping in the dynamic city center.
