  • Interested so went to find the place -a bit hidden away but easy parking on the outskirts of Chartes. Àbout 35 minutes to view.

  • The amount of detail in this house is incredible. I can't beleive one guy spent that much time creating this masterpiece. Everything - and I mean everything - is covered in mosaic tiles, from the walls to the floor and even the beds and chairs. It was a unique experience.. One you should definitely seek if you are in Chartres
  • A real gem and extraordinary place to visit in Chartres. It is an oasis of peace, colour and originality with every thinkable surface covered in mosiacs.
