Michelin gives it 3 stars. It all has to do with the historical importance. But the abbey itself was completely destroyed. There are only few ruins left and these are not too impressive. The place is not easy to get to and for those like myself who prefer to see actual architecture rather than be told how great it used... More

Unlike the abbey of nearby St. Martin de Boscherville, which for a large part has been restored and still is functional as a church, Jumièges is a ruin - but well maintained, and with a beautiful park around it. Even with a rollator, you fairly easily can gain access. The visitor's shop at the entrance gives highly adequate information.

Although ruined, there is enough of the Abbey left to get a feel for how it used to be. It was a very important, huge Abbey, with the Abbot accompanying William the Conquerer to Hastings. You are able to borrow iPads that you can point at parts of the building that recreates how it was - fascinating.

Great ruin and should be a must see if you are in the area. Used the 3D iPad which you can hire and shows you what the Abbaye looked like when it was complete.

We were travelling in our motor home and had decided to visit Rouen, we knew of this camp site just outside the city in a little town called Jumieges. After previously experiencing some bad service at this site we thought we would stay one night and then move on. We were pleasantly surprised when the owners greeted in a friendly... More

It was totally unexpected for us to find ourselves so close to the 11th century ruins of the Abbey: we just wanted to book a nice hotel close to Rouen where we can park a car and stay within close driving distance to the city. What a nice surprise was to see the Notre Dame ruins! They are spectacular! We... More

The fact that the site is for the biggest part in ruins contributes strongly to the feeling of the history that has gone by in the early ages. Particularly with the help of the 3D App on the iPAD (for rent at the entry) you get a good impression of the greatness this site must have had in those days.... More

Lovely location and rooms, breakfast rather pricey if you just want a croissant and coffee. Easy walk to get to the restaurant and the abbey.
