Car & Van Hire in Chaumont

Enterprise car hire locations in Chaumont

Chaumont received its first settlers in the 10th century, and spread out with the progression of history. It has an era to serve every interest, from turreted 13th-century homes to 16th-century mansions. It even has a castle and feudal keep, which looks out over the Suize Valley. As is the case with most towns in this part of France, its charm lies in its dark medieval past, which is set against a vista green and leafy enough for any fairy tale. You'll find the junction of the Seine, Aube and Meuse here, but it's better known for its "bald" mountain, which was once used as a strategic military point. The chapel of the Jesuits was built in 1640 and houses a famous Claude Collignon altarpiece. You will find your Enterprise Rent-A-Car branch a short way from the D619
