Charming B&B on the Veloscenic Paris to Mont St-Michel bike route

1 Rue du Bassin
28130 Maintenon
Eure-et-Loir, Centre

View map

Price from: €105-€135

Open: All year

Aux Charmes de Maintenon is what you get when successful haute couture Parisian milliners pack it all in and move to the country to start their own B&B. Jose and Carmen's lovingly restored listed building dates back to the time of Louis XIV, and features five tastefully renovated rooms. While the place has oodles of beauty and charm, it's overwhelmingly their personal touch that makes Aux Charme de Maintenon. There's an exquisite landscaped French garden behind the house, plus a sauna and a swimming pool. Carmen's homecooked tables d'hotes features foie gras, la coquille Saint-Jacques and creme brûlée (and of course a good local wine). Aux Charme de Maintenon – within spitting distance of Chateau de Maintenon – is also close to the start/finish of the Maintenon leg of the Veloscenic. Free wifi. English and French spoken.
