Chartres, France to Beaugency, France
The hostel at Beaugency is up the hill on the D925 about
2km. On arrival there was just enough time for a shower before a sumptuous dinner al
fresco. There's much more to say about this place, one of the best hostels in France. You
will not find another where the hospitality, food and accommodations are so first class. It
is really too bad that this is one of the first stops on a southbound tour because the
life is so good there you won't want to leave!
Beaugency, a charming medieval city. The 15th C castle
at Dunois houses the Musée des Arts et Traditions de l'Orléanais (Orleans Museum of Arts
and Traditions). The Town Hall (with its 16th C facade) has an exceptional collection of
17th C embroidered wall-hangings. The Tour César in the town is an 11th Century keep.
