Our house sits on the banks of The Seine and is close to three beautiful abbeys. Rouen, Deauville, Trouville , Honfleur and Etretat are close by. Paris is 1.20 by car. The Monet Museum, Haras du Pin, Pegasus beach and the Normandy landing beaches can be enjoyed. Our large garden is great for children. We have table tennis and snooker. Go karting, Accrobranch, Paintball and Golf are nearby as well as sailing and riding opportunities. There are two great restaurants in Jumieges.
The house offers a charming view of the river, lying as it does on the deepest stretch of the river Seine, between La Havre and Rouen. As a consequence some very large boats and sometimes passenger cruisers pass in front of the house throughout the day and night. It is possible to download an app to follow the progress of the boats, which can make some exciting manoeuvres as they traverse les boucles.
The house is between two BAC crossings.
Guests are able to use a self contained part of the house and the entire garden. We also have bikes which can be borrowed to cycle and explore locally.
Guests are able to use the small gym and sauna within the house.
Guests have exclusive access to the kitchen.
Interaction with guests
Catherine and Benoit will be looking after our guests as and when required. They live a 5 minute walk from the property. Benoit is able to provide a "taxi service" to the local train station in Yvetot, or to the airport in Deauville. He is also happy to give guests a sailing experience on his boat which is moored in Honfleur. Tea, coffee, milk are provided and you can place an order for delivery of bread and pastries through us for delivery. We can offer a couple of evening meals a week, made from local produce as well as home grown vegetables. If guests would like this addition they can ask for more information prior to booking as these proposals are subject to additional charge. Catherine is also happy to give the odd french lesson.
Other things to note
There are two ponds in the garden, one in particular may be too much of an attraction for very young children offering sightings of frogs, fish and dragonfly, but is manageable with supervision.
- No shoes in house.
We would really appreciate it if guests could kindly strip their beds on the morning before leaving. This would really help us to get the house ready in time for our next guests. Thank you in advance.
