We loved our stay at Justine's cottage. She was very welcoming and left us a snack to enjoy upon our arrival.
Her cottage (which is on the grounds next to her house) has two floors, with the master bedroom on the main floor with a bathroom (a nice feature is the shower and sink are separate from the toilet). Upstairs is a very functional dine-in kitchen. There's a sitting area too with sofas that convert to beds, so this sweet cottage can accommodate a family nicely.
What we appreciated most:
The location was perfect for us: walking distance to all the major attractions -- a 15 to 20 minute walk. As well, the train station is minutes away by foot, so we walked with our luggage to the station on the day of our departure very easily.
Quiet: this location is so quiet, we never heard any city noises despite the cottage's close proximity to everything. And although the owner lives in the grand house next door, we enjoyed a lot of privacy due to the cottage's garden surroundings.
Comfort: This was the cleanest VRBO we had during our stay in France. It's also nicely decorated! The beds and sofas were comfortable, and the small kitchen had most supplies to make light meals.
The only aspect we found inconvenient with our needs was the wifi was not working well at all, and we'd get interrupted in our connection constantly. Because we were there for one week -- we made due; yet if someone was staying longer and wifi is important, you should verify with Justine first.
Ultimately, we had such a good time in Rouen and we'd stay again at this charming cottage if it's available next time.
The pictures do not do this place justice! Serene, quiet, comfortable, well appointed and everyone was super responsive to our requests. We lunched out in the beautiful backyard, curled up in front of a roaring fire on the cool evenings. The kitchen is large and well appointed allowing us to cook wonderful meals. The beds were super comfortable, so no problems catching up on some much-needed sleep.This was the perfect jumping off point to explore Normandy from. A perfect get-a-way all the way around.
