The Experience

This is rural bliss just 15 minutes from bustling Rouen. Its soaring Gothic cathedral (painted many times by Monet), fascinating medieval quarter, ancient churches, museums and vibrant cultural life make it one of Normandy’s most engaging destinations.

You stay with Jérôme and Patricia in their elegant 17th-century manor house. This was Jérôme’s family home and it’s filled with heirlooms, ancestral portraits and antiques. Even the curtains have been reproduced from a fragment of grand-mère’s fabric by Parisian designers. One suite is on the ground floor, its windows opening to a walled garden; the second is in the attic. Breakfast is continental: croissants, homemade jams, yogurt and fruit compote – you eat in the pretty green-panelled room which has an open fire crackling on chilly days.

A long path leads down to the Seine: perfect for an evening stroll. In nearby St Martin there’s a fabulous Abbey with gardens which has two cafés that serve drinks and light meals. The Seine national park is all around for forest and river walks.

Reviews

A lovely place, great breakfasts, a warm welcome and really helpful advice about restaurants and sightseeing. We'll definitely recommend this to others. Thank you for a lovely visit.

Richard et marjorie, Dundee

If you were asked to name the most quintessentially French couple and authentic French house you couldn't do better than Le Brécy. You may only be just across the English Channel but the décor, furnishings, fabrics, the way the breakfast is served with porcelain and silver, even the rambling park and its surroundings seem a whole world away from the U.K. Well worth more than an overnight stay.

Peter & carolyn, Sawday's inspector

Beautiful house (especially the amazing furnishing/ décor)! We were very comfortable here! Best wishes.

Brigitte & franz joseph

Thank you for a great stay we really enjoyed it, hope that everything goes to plane with all the renovoations you have such a good place you deserve to succeed

Ken and jenny

I would like to personally thank you both for making our trip to France truly memorable. You made Debbie and I feel like family. We often stay in Bed and Breakfasts when we travel and I can honestly say that your home is the best we have ever stayed in. A special thanks to Jerome for allowing us to use his GPS unit. Without the GPS I would have not have found half of the destinations. Merci beaucoup Tom and Debbie...your Canadian Friends

Tom and debbie, Ontario

This was the perfect place for our four days in Normandy and they were the perfect hosts. The breakfast was wonderful. We took day trips to Bayeux, the D-Day beaches, Rouan, for the Beaus Arts Museum and to the Abbeye Saint-George. It was amazing. One day we drove to Mont St. Michel and back to their home. We couldn’t have chosen a better place for our day trips. We wouldn’t have wanted to pack and unpack each day and their home was so welcoming each evening. The history they gave us about their home, the working farm and the Abbey will remain with us.

We had the great opportunity to stay at Le Brecy for 5 nights. We used this location to visit various parts of the Normandie region before heading for Paris. Le Brecy is the long time family home of Patricia and Jerome and they have opened up their country B and B to travelers. They are also terrific hosts, always there to help in planning a wonderful day in the country. The apartment we stayed in was comfortable and private and gave us a great perspective on what it's like to live in a rural Rouen property. Our breakfast of delicious coffee and tea, juice, a basket of fresh, hot croissants an
