This apartment was lovely, very spacious & in a great location to visit Rouen. Wifi connection was good. One thing I will mention - we stayed here for 10 weeks and payed a cleaning fee of 25 euros a week. The apartment was kept clean but we never got a change of bed sheets & no spare sheets so we couldn't wash them ourselves & it rains a lot in Normandy hard to dry them in a day. We had 1 change of towels in that period. I feel this could be improved. Also it was summer & there were some quite warm days & although there was air conditioners in every room we were not given a remote to turn any on. Other than this all was really good & we were satisfied with our stay.
Our stay at this apartment was not nice at all and we had to stay for 3 weeks. It was spacious, nice decorated and the location was good, but that was about it.
1. The absence of English. We mostly received mails in French and when we arrived it was not possible to show us around in English what made it difficult, because our French was quite basic.
2. The bad Wi-Fi connection. We actually had to work but could not do so, because the Wi-Fi signal was very bad and if you were lucky you could get a signal just in front of the router.
3. It was super loud from upstairs and outside. There is a wooden floor in the house, so you could hear every step, running around and kids screaming upstairs. When we were there there were also construction works in the building next door until 1 AM (!!!) at night (several nights) and they just stopped because we complained several times. Oh and just to make it clear: they were all part of the family who rented out the flat, but the owners said they cannot help us with that issue.
4. The flat was sooo cold but the owners refused to turn on the heating system before Oct. 1 (after we left). So we had to make fire and sit with blankets all the time (not so much sun in the flat). The fire of course did not heat up the apartment because it was too big for that.
In the end we left a day earlier because we could not take it anymore and the owners were not really helpful and not that polite either. We also tried to write a review before but the owners said we have never stayed at their place. Let's see if the review gets published this time!
We spent 11 days at this lovely flat in a perfect location in Rouen. There is a secret garden off the kitchen and bedroom,
including a canopy where we enjoyed having a glass of wine, even during a light rain. However, for an eleven day stay
we were each provided with ONE towel, though an additional "linen fee" was added to our rent. There is a washing machine,
but no dryer, so waiting for a towel to air dry was not feasible. We had to purchase extra towels. And forget the Wifi! It was
promised, but did not happen. We were given a password by the property manager, who speaks no English. It did not work.
So we called the owner. She said the password could be found on the black box under the TV. No such thing. She told us
we were The ONLY ONES who could not find it on the black box! Then later she sent the manager by to show us a THIRD
password taped to the wall in the kitchen that was over 30 characters! It also did not work. Then we gave up. I felt that
calling the owner again would be an exercise in futility and we had a full schedule. Additionally, we were provided one partial
role of toilet tissue and one partial bar of soap with someone's pubic hair on it. By the time we were allowed access to the
flat, we were too tired to think, having been up for over 35 hours. But the next morning, our first priority was to run out and find a store for bathroom tissue and soap. Just a tiny bit more consideration for the renter would go a long way here. Perhaps a fresh bar of soap? Maybe an extra roll of toilet tissue? For a stay as long as ours, maybe and extra towel per person?
Still, I would recommend this flat. It is LOVELY with beautiful windows looking onto a tree-lined street. It's secret garden led to a whole new dimension of our enjoyment of the beautiful city of Rouen. The flat has gorgeous fireplaces and is tastefully, comfortably furnished. And it is very clean. It was so relaxing, charming, and peaceful to come back here after our
tourist excursions. Just be sure to pack extra towels, toilet paper and your own soap. And go to the tourist office to
use the Internet.
For one month it was our home way from home.
Definitely our choice for our next trip to Rouen.
This is a really great apartment set a few minutes walk from the medieval centre of Rouen. It's spacious with a great mix of quality antique and modern furnishings. It even has a large terrace for al fresco dining for when you decide to stay in to dine instead of going out to one of the dozens of restaurants virtually on your doorstep. Rouen centre is incredibly picturesque with timbered buildings leaning together on cobbled streets. It's not normally on the UK tourist trail so we feel like we have uncovered a hidden treasure. Not only that, but once you get out of the industrial city outskirts you are in beautiful French country side with it's lovely villages and you are even within striking distance of Monet's garden at Giverny which was a riot of colour even in mid April.
Thank you Chantal for providing such a lovely apartment and being so patient and speedy with your replies to my questions before our visit. We hope to return one day.
The apartment had everything we needed, everything worked as it should and
the location was excellent. We had no problems with either the television or Wi-Fi connection
We would be happy to recommend you to others and hope to return soon
