The Experience

This mid-19th century mansion was once the family home of the well-known food critic Henri Gault, and is set at the end of a thriving and prosperous high street in a small village. The small team who run the hotel are friendly, efficient and eager to please.

Eating here is a treat – seasonal menus use produce from the hotel’s kitchen garden and you can dine next to the open kitchen in the restaurant or on a riverside terrace. Breakfast on bread, pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt, ham and eggs, plus excellent Normandy cheeses; you can have lunch and dinner too or there’s a choice of restaurants within a few minutes’ walk, including a bistro, pizzeria and burger joint.

Relax in the garden with a book, or in the open-plan downstairs reception area with its elegant sitting room and a bar. A fine staircase leads to two floors of bedrooms, most with sitting areas, and some with terraces or balconies. Kayak and fish on the river, or sightsee: Giverny is half an hour away, Versailles and Rouen are an hour. Drive to Paris or the Normandy coast in 1.5 hours.

Accommodation

Reviews

A charming place. From the outside, it’s an old-style family mansion in a garden by the River Eure. Inside, the mood is light-hearted, unfrilly, sophisticated comfort, the food is hyper-fresh modern French, the staff are intelligent, friendly and good at their jobs. And the cherry? That’s the little river that curves glittering alongside house and garden. Take a kayak and a picnic and dream the day away in that magical watery world. A super weekend place with Giverny ten minutes down the road and the pretty Normandy ports – Honfleur, Trouville, Deauville - only one and a half hours away.

Location

The neighbourhood

Pacy-sur-Eure is sometimes called Petit Deauville and is just as upmarket, with expensive shops, a lively weekly market and tearooms a few minutes’ walk. Parisians have traditionally had weekend houses here, and some now commute to the capital. Leave the hotel and you’ll reach the high street within a few minutes yet walk towards the grounds and within 100 yards you are almost in the countryside – a great combination.

Local points of interest from Nathalie Delormeau

  • Enjoy a sporty break and explore the area with a Canoe ride, accompanied by a guide, along the Eure river, straight from the hotel.
  • Dive into the world of impressionism when you visit La Maison de Claude Monet, as well as the Giverny museum. Easy access with our queue jump tickets.
  • Visit the town of Vernon, 15 minutes from the hotel, a beautiful old town with banks along the Seine to enjoy a moment of calm and culture.
  • On the Vernon road, make a detour to Chateau de Bizy and its luscious green gardens.
  • Discover Normandy other ways..on the little old train which has themed outings and on-board meals...
  • Many sporting activities on offer thanks to our various partners: horse riding, microlight, bike ride, hot air balloon, quad bike...

Introducing

Nathalie Delormeau

Nathalie is the epitome of French elegance - her mother was a Chanel model. She trained at the Cordon Bleu school in London then came back to France to work in interior decoration, hence her fine eye for texture, detail and colour. After co-running a Michelin-starred restaurant in Paris for many years, she discovered the house in a bad condition, but fell in love with the building and the setting and spent over two years rebuilding it. She is warm, cares hugely about client satisfaction and is very present in the hotel, keeping a close eye on her well-chosen team.
