Langres - Le Chapitre Guesthouse

Small and elegant B&B on the Meuse River cycle route

1 rue de la Crémaillère
52200 Langres
Haute-Marne, Champagne-Ardennes (Grand Est)

View map

Price from: €94

Open: All year

Langres is stunning small town. Everything is walkable and encircled by ramparts dotted with artillery towers and punctured by fortified gates. This small B&B in the centre of Langres is a family-run affair. Régine, Etienne and their dog – a Basset Artésien Normand – greeted us with a wagging tail (the hound) and bottles of cold water. The water was particularly welcome after pedalling – and finally pushing – our loaded bikes up the steep hill between the station and Langres. The following morning we were packed off onto the Meuse Cycle Route with a picnic.

Haute-Marne, Champagne-Ardennes (Grand Est)

Slightly unprepossessing from the road, the hotel’s location is super handy for the Meuse bike route. It’s only a couple of kilometres off the route and although they are uphill, it means you have a stunning view over the surrounding countryside. With a bar, bistro and restaurant on site, there’s no need to ride further afield for food and drink. Two large, locked garages on the opposite side of the main road with loads of space to lock bikes.
