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.

What a beautiful ruin. I took so many photos from different angles I didn't know when to stop. Please visit if you are near the area close to Rouen, lovely village, easy parking across the abbey and lovely picnic area

We did expect more from this "most beautiful ruin in France." After all we had spent an entire day at Fountains Abbey in the UK many years ago. It was lovely. It was also cold and windy with frequent drips of rain. The construction and reconstruction was done over centuries and we would have liked to better figure out what... More

The site was actually already closed when we got there but take some time to browse through the adjoining gift shop. They have an amazing variety of books, cd's, curious at excellent prices. We looked at the Abbaye through the gates and it was impressive, of what we could see. Opposite the Abbaye is an excellent Tea Room. Make sure... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Abbey. The tablet we were given upon arrival, provided us with a unique service in that when you got to certain positions within the abbey grounds you stand near a 3D mark, and can then view how the abbey may have looked when it was in good order - this really was a...

Jumieges is worth a side trip. We were there on a perfect day, which made everything better. The abbey illustrates many periods of church architecture, including romanesque and gothic. The romanesque nave has no roof, which of course allows the light to play on the arches as it never could in a full romanesque structure. I think the gothic parts... More
