The department of the Eure-et-Loir lies on the route between Paris and the Chateaux of the Loire Valley. .
For such a relatively small area it is rich with scenery, heritage and recreational opportunities. From the scenery of the Natural Park of Perche to the wonderful architecture of the UNESCO World Heritage listed cathedral at Chartres the departments capital. The area also has its own chateaux with a history that connects kings and mistresses, plus gardens aplenty to explore. NB Here it is the Loir river, not the better-known Loire!
