Attractive b&b cheaply equipped
This b&b is in a good location close to Chartres, with an attractive building and garden, and plenty of secure parking. However, access to the rooms, set in an upper floor inserted into an old barn, is by steep and narrow stairs. The rooms have thin walls and the cheapest possible fittings, especially in the bathroom which did not even have a shower fitted to the wall but just an attachment to the bath taps. It has a comfortable shared sitting room. The breakfast too was poor, providing the bare minimum of pleasant croissant, dull bread, sweet yoghurt and lukewarm coffee.
Pros: Location, garden
Cons: Bathroom and breakfast. The staircase is very poor but would be very costly to alter
Location: Only Chartres cathedral (the town has little of interest) and the attractive forest of Ramboillet (good for walks or cycle rides)
