The Royal Eure Valley

[ Cycle route Veloscenic, Paris <> Mont-St-Michel ]
  • 37.5 km

This short but pleasant section of La Véloscénie takes you from Epernon to Chartres. Meander through the Drouette Valley before joining the royal Eure Valley. The way along little roads leads to Maintenon's grand château and aqueduct. Pretty villages line the Eure as you join a greenway, with the towers of Chartres's Notre-Dame Cathedral calling from afar. You arrive at the dramatic capital of stained glass and light, the city of Chartres.
