Now, more than ever, we need to look after ourselves and place a focus on wellness. During your holidays in Eure et Loir, nothing beats checking into the Grand Monarque**** , a blissful spa hotel in Chartres to blow away the cobwebs in style with your loved-one. Switch off, unwind and reboot at this heavenly haven, where indulgent Spa treatments meet exciting food, high-style interiors, and soul-soothing scenery.
Let the pamper party begin...
Iconic of Chartres' epicureanism, the Hotel Le Grand Monarque**** promises an idyllic setting in which you can completely disconnect from the stress of everyday life. A couple’s getaway at Le Grand Monarque**** is all about treating yourself to some seriously serene pampering, beautifying, relaxing and reviving your senses.
A luxury hotel
Imagine staying in the cosiest room ever and having a personalized service with attention to details. Now imagine a day of pure indulgence at the Beby Monarque Spa, a spa that has everything to make it a destination in its own right. Quality time spent in this oasis of calm will soon restore your wellbeing: book a massage for 2, bathe in the sensory pool, sweat in the sauna or the hammam, sip a fresh lemonade on a deckchair in the garden… This shared journey of bliss will tick all the right boxes from the first exquisite moment to the last.
What could be more epicurean than indulging in a fine restaurant for a romantic dinner? You’re spoilt for choice in Chartres with relaxed establishments that combine an emphasis on great ingredients from the area with local charm and stylish panache. Try the Michelin Star restaurant Le Georges restaurant or the brasserie La Cour to taste the famous « pâté de Chartres » and perhaps have a little tour of the cellar before dinner. Another good option is Le Madrigal, a sleek cocktail bar for an aperitif before a first-class dinner!
Watch the city twinkle
Chartres is pretty in daylight, but it certainly knows how to impress at night with Chartres en Lumières. As day turns into night, illuminations are switched on, turning the charming city into a magical wonderland of light and shadow. Architectural gems, impressive monuments and cobbled streets are lit up to display them at their best until 1am. Walk the complete illuminated trail holding hands with your loved-one, wander through the lower town and stroll by the banks of the river Eure to finish at the cathedral’s royal portal for spectacular projections. You are sure to be dazzled!
