I am a former executive in the communication field and visual artist, I am passionate about plastic art and decoration, and I am delighted to welcome travellers and indicate the cultural and tourit must-sees of the area.
Janine Auvray purchased this house in 1997
I wanted to revive this dependency where my mother used to live while privileging the contact with my guests. I also love to share my passion for art.
The key word for this residence is Serenity. The comfort, decoration, and peaceful surroundings allow the residents to recharge their batteries. The garden, protected by the steeple of the Longpaon Church, is a haven of peace just a few metres away from the historic centre of Rouen.
Janine was the perfect hostess and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Darnetal with its easy public transport links to Rouen just 10 minutes by bus from the Marie.
The gite was comfortable, well equipped and the quiet garden a wonderfully relaxing place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine upon our return after a busy day sightseeing.
Thank you for a lovely stay we would love to return one day.
Janine Auvray was the perfect host. Une tres gentille dame. The accommodations were very comfortable and I enjoyed sleeping late. It was much nicer to stay near Rouen but not in Rouen. Darnetal est une petite ville pres de Rouen. Since there weren't many restaurants I bought un biftek from Le Boulanger and une baguette and des tomates et from age down the street and made a delicious dinner one evening. Enjoyed dinner in Rouen one day. Would definitely recommend for one or two people.
Jane is a wonderful person and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The pictures don't do the place justice as it is nicer than we had imagined from the pictures. Our stay was too short but this is a good location to explore the Rouen area.
“Chez Simone” is a beautifully-presented 'maison à pan de bois' situated behind high steel gates in the tranquil commune of Darnétal. The area is safe and provides the perfect base from which to explore all five Départements of Normandy. The A13 and A28 are accessible within minutes and the centre of Rouen is a mere 15 minutes away by local bus.
The property is beautifully-presented and fully equipped, with parking just next to the high steel gates. Janine, the owner, lives next door and really makes you feel at home.
For a secure, tranquil and comfortable stay in Normandy, this is surely the ideal accommodation.
Janine's home is in Donetal about 10 minutes by car from the center of Rouen. A nice rental although the double bed is not real accommodating. All else was quite nice and Janine is very sweet. Her English is a tad bit better than my French which is close to bill. A good value and Rouen and the Normandy region is a must see
We spent two days at Janines appartment on our way to the Loire. It was perfect for us with a well equipped appartment, secure parking and beautifully kept garden to relax in the late afternoon. We had our two year old son and although the appartment is one bedroom it was big enough for our travel cot. The french blinds made the room very dark so the little one went to sleep very well. The appartment is a short drive fron Rouen but you can get a bus from tge main street in Darnetal. It was very easy and took about 10 mins. Rouen is great place with lovely streets. Highly recommend this place for a stopover for one or two days. Adam, Vic and Elijah.
9 minutes away from the historic centre of Rouen, the location allows visiting Normandy while enjoying a pleasant setting in the heart of a small and green small town.
