The
Experience

Poised on a hillside gazing south over the Seine, this proud red-brick mansion was once home to opera tenor Placide Poultier. Now Patsy will welcome you in; a teacher and guide, she is well versed in local history and happy to share the local secrets over a light breakfast. At the top of the house are two modern, simple twin bedrooms and a sitting room where you can browse a guide book over a cup of tea; bathrooms are separate but private and everything is spotless. Outside, a huge copper beech and blue cedar sprinkle shade into a lush, sloping garden where a barbecue and hammock promise lazy summer afternoons.

Reviews

As others have said Patsy is a wonderful hostess and provided two excellent dinners. The sight of ships on the Seine was amazing as they go to Rouen, the fourth largest port in France, bridges prevent them reaching Paris. We hope to return probably to her gite which is so well equipped.

John, Derbyshire

A wonderful stay on the banks of the Seine. This house is full of character with 2 lovely bedrooms on the top floor each with their own bathroom. There is a joint sitting room with TV and Wifi throughout. Patsy is an entertaining and attentive hostess; a real character full of interesting stories. We took the option of having dinner with her and were not disappointed. A glass of bubbly beforehand, followed by a comprehensive meal cooked by her, accompanied by an interesting selection of wines. We only stayed one night, but one could happily stay for a few days and relax.

Roger, Malvern

Return visit, even better than the first. A wonderful hostess who likes people and entertaining. So much to see in Normandy and Patsy knows where to go, where to park etc. Visited 3 lovely gardens in the area. Back for more next year,

Jocelyn

Lovely spot to stay. Near to Rouen and on the side of the Seine. Great welcome from Patsy and made to feel part of her family. Lovely rooms with own superior bathroom including bathrobe and slippers. A real treat.
