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.

The fact it has secure parking is a bonus as on street parking is difficult to find. Rouen is a lovely city: lots to see and explore. Good choice of restaurants. Very enjoyable stay. We would come back to both the accommodation and the city.

Outside, our car was very securly parked in off the street which gave great peace of mind. Inside, each bedroom was sufficient and spacious, the two showers were spectacular and the toilet sufficient. The living area works real well, good kitchen , good lounge area and good dining table. Again the outside terrace here greatly enhanced the stay. Local shops are very close and convienient and the main touristy area is a ten minute walk across the river. Summing up we were delighted to have chosen this house and would be glad to recommend it.
