Our litle piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

I expected a nice place from seeing the photos, but when we arrived we were delighted to discover that the cottage is even better than we'd thought. Beautifully decorated, perfectly clean, spacious and quiet ... this place is a gem.

We especially enjoyed the gorgeous garden, and walking on the path alongside the river, which is just across the lane.

The cottage is an easy drive from the tourist sites of Giverny, Les Andelys, Lyons-la-Foret -- all of which we explored, and more. After a long day of touring, how happy we were to return to our quiet, secluded cottage and eat dinner in our lovely garden.

Closer to home, we spent a day exploring the cottage town's of Pont de L'Arch, which is just as pretty as Lyons-la-Foret but less touristy. We dined at the fabulous Auberge de la Pomme, which is within walking distance of the cottage. It's a bit pricey, but oh, so worth it! We also enjoyed the little bar two doors down from our cottage -- they served us cocktails to go! (They let us carry away their glasses, which we returned the next day.)

This place was perfect, and an amazing bargain. We truly hated to leave.

Comfortable Cabin, great location, friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in March 2013 and had a great time. The cabin is well furnished with everything you need. The owners, Christian and Philippe were very welcoming and gave us lots of helpful tips on things to see. They were also very responsive to any questions we had. The grounds are beautiful, it's on the property with an old Normandy manor house. It's in a very safe location and makes a great base for day-trips all over Haute Normandie. Thanks again Christian and Philippe!

Gite à découvrir absolument.

  • 5 of 5

Très belle restauration, gîte très agréable à vivre, une maison spacieuse et très bien équipée, sur un jardin magnifique. Les propriétaires sont adorables. Notre séjour a été trop court pour pouvoir profiter de ce lieu magique. Nous sommes prêts à revenir pour la qualité, le calme la visite des petits villages aux alentours et pour faire plus amples connaissances avec ses propriétaires.
