Utterly peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful week. This is a beautiful area, not far from the ferry at Le Havre and yet so much to see and do. A level walk of about 900 metres to the river Seine and fascinating to watch life on the river whether the tide was in or out. The Foret de Brotonne was simply amazing to drive through - so quiet and peaceful. The gite is all upstairs and we spent the whole time on the terrace, half way up the trees, surrounded by bird song and beauty. Armelle and Michel so kind and helpful and so justly proud of their wonderful garden. There are lovely trips to be taken along the Seine and free ferries to cross too! Some knowledge of French would be helpful.

Owner's Response: Nous sommes toujours heureux de voir combien notre région, notre jardin est apprécié par nos hôtes. Nous essayons de faire au mieux pour que leur séjour soit à la hauteur de leurs attentes. Nous sommes là pour eux s'ils le désirent (visite du jardin, réservation d'un restaurant...) Nous avons encore une fois lié un lien avec nos plus "des hôtes" mais des "amis". Merci beaucoup Amicalement Michel et armelle

VIVE LA DIFFERENCE

  • 5 of 5

Long live the difference. Let me explain. I will describe what I believe to be the minimum requirements of a holiday let, and then point out “the difference” which makes this an exceptional find. Its really nice to come across something that exceeds expectations.

1)Arrival and greeting

A friendly welcome is always going to start the holiday off well.

The difference – this one was heartfelt and warm.

2) Great accommodation

All amenities as described to be available.

The difference – the little touches. A magnificent floral display in the lounge area, with the cut flowers coming from the hosts own garden, and arranged in a very professional manner.

The basics in terms of kitchen items to be available.

The difference – some chocolate, biscuits, and a beautifully dressed dining table. Kitchen items not normally provided, were readily available e.g. salt, pepper, kitchen roll, washing up liquid, cooking foil etc.

3) Information on surrounding area.

It’s always nice if there are a few leaflets available describing the surrounding area and places to visit.

The difference – up to date local news on places to go, and things to see. There is a local ferry service, now retired due to the new bridge nearby, that is run one day per year, and a local festival in the nearby town of Caudebec-en-caux, something we would never have been aware of without the kind sharing of this information. A mid-week market (again not mentioned in any leaflet) was also shared with us. The knowledge of both Armelle and Michel about the surrounding area is extensive and openly and willing shared. If you want to know anything, they will be only too happy to help.

4) Privacy

You really don’t want to be bothered with the hosts during your holiday.

The difference – despite being in the hosts grounds, the gite was treated with the utmost respect for our privacy. The hosts will only approach you if necessary or invited to do so.

5)Additional services

The difference – these were not asked for, nor advertised, but very welcomed in deed. To what to I elude you may ask? Well I will not say as I am not happy to mislead you into expecting something that may not be possible to be provided during your stay, nor am I happy to set Armelle and Michel any goals that they must achieve for your stay. I will however wage a bet that you will find something “out of the blue”, during your stay that will be very special to you. May I strongly suggest that you take up my recommendation to stay here.

Lovely long weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Armelle and Michel. We had a wonderful weekend. You made us feel very welcome and your gardens are truly amazing. For anyone wanting to visit, if you like amazing gardens then you will LOVE the work they have put into the garden.

It was our first visit to the pays de caux and I think we will definitely be back!

Erholsamer Aufenthalt in grüner Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Von den Vermietern wurden wir sehr warmherzig empfangen. Die hübsch und gemütlich eingerichtete Wohnung liegt so, dass meine viele Sehenswürdigkeiten in der wunderschönen

Landschaft schnell erreichen kann. Es lagen jede Menge touristischer Vorschläge für uns bereit. Wir haben unseren Aufenhalt bei Armelle und Michel sehr genossen, die immer für uns da waren, falls wir etwas brauchten oder eine Frage hatten. Wir kehren bestimmt noch einmal dorthin zurück.

Owner's Response: Angelika et jasper ont été des hôtes charmants et souriants. Pendant leur leur séjour nous avons apprécié leurs remarques sur le gîte et sur le jardin que nous avons longuement visité ensemble. Nous avons beaucoup de chance de recevoir des personnes de grande qualité humaine et d'échange. La région est magnifique et il ne suffit pas d'une semaine pour visiter tous nos trésors (Abbayes, musées, randonnées, jardins, exposition etc..) Il y en a pour tous les goûts, pour les grands comme pour les petits. Merci encore à Angelika et Jasper pour leur joli cadeau. Cela nous a touché. Michel et armelle, vos amis

Kleines Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung mit eigener Terrasse inmitten eines wunderschönen Gartens war sehr gepflegt, sauber und gemütlich. Wir wurden sehr herzlich von den Besitzern empfangen. Sie waren während des gesamten Aufenthalts sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Vom Standpunkt aus kann man interessante Ausflüge machen, z.B. nach Rouen, Jumiège, auch ans Meer ist es nicht allzu weit (ca. 45 km). Im Garten ist es herrlich ruhig, ideal zum Entspannen. Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Urlaubswoche und empfehlen das Relais du Roy unbedingt weiter.

Un petit nid nouillet

  • 5 of 5

Un endroit charmant pour un week-end en tête-à-tête.

A notre arrivée, un goûter maison nous attendait, ce qui ne nous était jamais arrivé.

Les extérieurs sont magnifiques, calmes, apaisants.

Le gîte est fonctionnelle, propre et douillet.

Armelle et Michel sont des hôtes avenants et soucieux du bien-être de leurs invités.

Les alentours regorgent de lieux méconnus mais qui valent le détour d'une visite.

Merci pour ce week-end de détente. Nous reviendrons à coup sûr. A recommander, sans hésiter!

Owner's Response: Merci de votre gentil mot cela nous va droit au coeur surtout aujourd'hui car l'anniversaire de note mariage. Un joli retour .... Oui vous l'avez compris cet endroit est fait pour poser ses valises, ses soucis, ses fatigues. Personne ne vient pas ici par hazard. Vraiment ce sera un grand plaisir de vous revoir et nous l'espérons qu'alors vous découvrirez encore autre chose sur notre jolie région ou sur vous mêmes. Avec toute affection pour vous deux. Michel et armelle
