Make a holiday apartment in Rouen your home away from home

The beautiful and historic city of Rouen is in Northern France, nestled on the bank of the river Seine. A holiday apartment in Rouen is an ideal base to explore the best that Normandy has to offer. The historic sights of Rouen and the surrounding antique towns, the beautiful countryside and the lovely Normandy beaches are all easily accessible. You will feel right at home as your holiday apartment in Rouen offers all the modern conveniences you would expect for a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Things to do

p>Steeped in history, Rouen was once one of the largest and most prosperous towns in medieval Europe and was the ancient capital of Normandy. As such, the architectural sights of Rouen are spectacular and including the castle, the Palais de Justice, the university, various impressive churches and a number of excellent museums. The variety of things to see and do in this warm and friendly area will ensure your stay in a holiday apartment in Rouen is one that is bound to be unforgettable.

-The Cathedrale Notre Dame de Rouen is one place that should be at the top of your list to visit. This beautiful cathedral, one of the most famous in France, is crowned by 3 impressive towers and decorated by lacy gothic stonework. Behind the cathedral is the Archbishop’s Palace, which is the site where in 1431 Joan of Arc was tried as a heretic. If you visit during the summer months you will be treated to a spectacular sound and light show that is projected onto the front of the cathedral.

-The Musee Jeanne d Arc is another great place to visit. This museum celebrates the life of Joan of Arc. The 1400s lifestyle is recreated using wax figures and you can delve deep into the story of the warrior saint.

-The Jardin des Plantes are beautiful botanical gardens that cover over 8 hectares. As you stroll around the gardens you will discover a huge variety of plants as well as see various fish and animals. It is a most pleasant way to spend a few hours.

-Shopping is great in Rouen. Want to satisfy your sweet tooth? Then take a visit to the Auzou chocolate shop with its beautifully made confectionery. There are also some excellent markets where you can buy fresh local produce. They are a great place to shop for supplies to cook your meals in your Rouen holiday apartment. Don’t forget to pick up delicious cheeses and apples, and of course a bottle of cider or calvados (apple brandy), the favourite regional tipples of Normandy.

-Sightseeing opportunities outside of Rouen are plentiful. It’s an hour’s drive to the coast and the beaches of Normandy. You can visit the sites of the D-Day landings or find a quiet spot to enjoy the sun, sea and sand. Le Havre is a large port city full of attractions, while nearby Honfleur and Deauville have sufficient of interest to make for worthy day trips from Rouen holiday homes.

Humidity in the region is generally always above 50% and has been known to reach 100%. The area also has no dry season; most months have, at least, light drizzle.

Getting to Rouen

The easiest way to reach Rouen is to drive over on the ferry into Dieppe. There is a train station at Rouen so taking a train via Eurotunnel and Paris is another option.

They made the four of us very welcome on arrival. The Apartment is very well equipped and extremely comfortable. It is in a great location , just a short walk to the city centre. This year we visited Monet's Garden and the port of Honfleur, which is well worth the trip if only for the most delightful Moules marinière I have ever had. I would recommend this apartment to any one wishing to stay in central Normandy. I am sure you would have a great time as we did in May 2017. Paul / Val / Rob / Yvonne.
