This property was a delight, we were welcomed by Estelle and shown around the property the rooms were light spacious and there was a big balcony with a fabulous view over the valley with the River Risle winding away in front of us. The bedrooms were also spacious and the bathrooms well equipped. The kitchen was easy to use and the double fridge really helpful. Jean François couldn’t of been more helpful suggesting places to go to eat and also local Chateau and other places of interest. The house is ideally place to visit Rouen, Evreux, Honfleur which is great for lunch, we also went as far as Bayeux. Exploring local villages was also great fun. It was really good to come home in the evening sit out on the balcony with a nice glass of cold French wine or the excellent local cider. Other places not to miss are Le Bec Hellouin don’t miss the Abbey’s shop. Jumièges we suggest taking a picnic. Chateau Gaillard with its stunning views from the top car park can be combined with the unmissable trip to Monet’s gardens and house at Giverny, do go early to avoid the crowds. I have to say finally that it was ‘La Hungerie’ with its stylish interior and wonderful setting that made our holiday.
We had a good stay in Normandy although the weather was mostly overcast. Lisieux and Evreux are interesting towns to visit and La Dame Blanche is a small farm/zoo with farmyard animals which will appeal to small children. Chateau Beaumesnil is very close and worth a visit. The gite has a lot of kitchen equipment but strangely does not have a kettle or mugs for tea. The 2 bedrooms are a good size and the beds are comfortable. It is useful to have a washing machine but we did not use the dishwasher. There is plenty of hot water for a shower or bath. Each room has a radiator which can be turned on individually. The television has satellite channels (but none in English). There is an Intermarche at Bernay which is only 12km away. Overall it is a well-equipped cottage and is in a very peaceful area.
