CALM AND COMFORT
Our boutique bed & breakfast accommodation is situated opposite the main house. It is a cosy romantic space under the eaves, accessed by old stone exterior steps and decorated in a fresh contemporary country style, featuring French vintage furniture and lighting as well as handmade curtains and bed linen.
The Studio offers an antique double bed with supremely comfortable deep sprung mattress for blissful sleep, an en-suite shower room and separate WC. There is a water kettle so you can make your own cup of tea or coffee. Bed linen, towels and a hairdryer are provided. During longer stays, bed linen and towels will be changed every 5 days. Wifi is available and we have a baby's cot and multi-function pram for use on request.
From summer 2023, the Studio will have its own terraced garden, a green and fragrant private corner for you to relax in. But you are of course also welcome to enjoy our beautiful courtyard garden!

We provide a boutique bed and breakfast service and as such do not function in the same way as a hotel does. Neither can or do we offer the same amenities, facilities or 24-hour service.
La Divine is our home, a place of soothing tranquility, which offers the simple pleasures of life in the French countryside. There are no shops or restaurants in Saint Chartres and you will need a car to reach these in the surrounding villages. Instead of chateau chic we offer rural romance and instead of family attractions you will find peaceful rejuvenation. You come here because you seek blissful solitude.
Soak up the sun in the central courtyard garden or retreat under the shady trees with a nice cool drink. We have a selection of books, games and puzzles available. Budding artists may wish to use our easel and drawing pencils, pastels or artist paints and if you'd like to go and explore the valley we have bicycles ready for you. Garden lovers might even like to come and get their hands dirty in the potager and see where all the healthy goodness in our meals comes from.
You are welcome to join us for a lunch or evening meal or we can prepare picnics if you wish to venture out for the day (surcharges apply). Plenty of information about the area will be provided during your stay - you can find some initial details here - and our local visitor information centres are devoted to offering you further assistance.

"We had marvellous days at La Divine in your comfortable guest room with its artistic ambience and beautiful decoration. It was a real surprise to find this high level of comfort in such an old building. The stylish bathroom, the tea set with the porcelain teacups, the beautiful view when descending the stairs, the leisurely breakfast and delicious home made tapas and Indian curry dishes. It all gave us the feeling of being far away from the business of work and city life. We have really enjoyed our stay and your kind hospitality and will surely come again. In the meantime we will spread the news of a lovely guest house in France to our friends!"
