The Experience

In a small village off the Le Havre-Rouen road, in the grounds of a 19th-century mansion, is a two-storey, half-timbered, semi-detached cottage, immaculately built in regional style. And you may share the owner’s garden, with its sweeping driveway, barbecue, magnificent copper beech and tall cedar; Patsy is a mine of information on the area and has even been a Normandy guide. Inside is a tile-floored, L-shaped living room with pale walls, new furniture and good sofabed, pretty Italian prints, a generous quantity of books, and French windows opening to a glass-sided terrace with views over the Seine: watch boats and tankers drift by. The kitchen sparkles with brand new everything, along with Spode and willow-pattern china, and the shower room is modern and impeccable. Upstairs are two sweet simple rooms, bright with skylights and double-glazed dormer windows. Linen, heating and a grocery pack are included, and there are bikes to borrow for riverside jaunts. Don’t miss Rouen, city of culture; Madame Bovary amused herself there, and so will you.

We had a fabulous week in this lovely cottage. Patsy gave us a very warm welcome and was always on hand for any questions. The cottage is superbly equipped and was spotlessly clean. Sitting on the terrace overlooking the Seine watching the river traffic was so relaxing. The setting of Villequier is very pretty with a lovely path for walking or cycling by the river. You are within easy reach of lots of lovely places and driving by the river on quiet roads using the ferries to cross was a lovely way to spend the day.

Jill, Cheshire

Incredible Charming and knowledgeable host and a gite that lacked for nothing. We were amazed at the level of hospitality provided with such a kind and thoughtlful person. The location was ideal for us being central for a host of interesting towns, gardens and abbeys. We shall return

Colin, Manchester

We were delighted with this lovely Gite for our week in Normandy. Great location for exploring the area. Excellent quality accomodation with top class furnishing. Everything was beautifully clean and well presented. The warm welcome, picking up the keys and the stocked fridge made this a very relaxing trip from the moment we arrived. Thank you Patsy.

Julie, Limerick

A charming, comfortable and well equipped Gite in a delightful setting, well placed for exploring along the Seine and beyond. There is a lovely terrace where you can just chill and watch the world go by. Patsy, our generous hostess ensured we had everything we needed, helped us with some tickets and shared lots of really helpful information. Would definitely recommend.

lesley, London

A wonderful, comfortable fully equipped cottage with a very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful host. The meal provided on our first night was delicious and the fully stocked fridge a delight to find. We had a great week touring the area, and are grateful for the provision of tickets for Giverney and insider tips.

Helen, Leeds

This gite is a wonderful place to spend a week on the banks of the Seine. It is beautifully equipped with everything that a traveller needs and more - a home away from home. Nothing has been forgotten. The outlook from the terrace is stunning, the perfect place to relax with a drink after a day of touring. The location is perfect for easy access to many routes for day trips throughout Normandy and further. Patsy is the most hospitable host and the attention and advice she offered made our stay memorable. Her knowledge of the area is amazing. We highly recommend this gite.
