If you like the XIXth century atmosphere, you'll love the "Jardins d'Epicure" hotel, located in a small village at the gate of Normandy. The place is really peaceful; a nice park with old trees will welcome you, crossed by the Epte river.
We stayed for a night at the "Villa florentine", at the top of the house (no elevator, but 3 floors only). The comfort of the room was perfect: a big room, large and comfortable bed; arms-chair to relax and a beautiful bath-room with a shower. The decoration is simple and refined. We found mineral water, tea and coffee in the room. Umbrellas are provided as well.
Since we slept there because we were attending a weeding-party near from Bray-Lu we did not have time to enjoy the pool, or the breakfast. But what we got was really worth the price (120 euros).
We came back late: I confess that may be I am not a great adventurer, but the walk between the parking lot and the Villa Florentine, in a deep dark night was a funny experience... The light of the Iphone helped us to find the bridge and to get back to our room. A torch would have been useful: I regret I forgot mine....
