We just finish our trip to this beautiful Country side inn. You will need a car and 1.5 hours from the airport. No traffic, easy driving, Nice French design houses with character, inexpensive food, relaxing take your time holiday. No pick pocket to worry about. Beautiful drive, friendly Inn staff, friendly French people. Fresh air, swimming pool. Apple wine and apple whisky and lot of delicious cheese. Does not cost much. 1 week is enough and driving all over French landmark, except Paris. Avoid the traffic and the tourist traps. Easy drive all over just like in North America.
This place is in the middle of nowhere. Not accessible to public transportation. Taxi charged for 200 euro to get Paris, 400 euro to Mt.de Saint Michael. Rip-off - we have to spend a lot of money to just get around the area. Rent-a-car is not an option for me. Unit has no elevator, you will have to carry your heavy luggage up and down the stairs, room is small and unkept. furniture are old, mattress spring are poking. I strongly do not recommend this place.
good site as it is very quiet and on the river with nice play area for kids; convenient for lots of close visits like Rouen, Giverny, Chateau gaillard and Bio tropicalia; look out for the groundhog who lives on site; nice swimming pool too although a little small (the internal one)
This is a great resort located literally on the banks of the Seine river in Connelle, Normandy. An easy drive from Paris. Easy drive to the WW II sights, Calvados region, Cheese Trail, seaport villages, even the Bayeux tapestry! The resort is very well maintained. Great, friendly multi-lingual staff. Make sure that you order the continental breakfast the night before each morning, They bring in fresh pastries from a local patisserie, along with fresh coffee, tea, cereal, local cheeses and charcuterie, etc. must not be missed!
Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city drama and frenetic pace, independent transportation is key to enjoyment of area attractions and access to most POI, as county/municipal bus service to resort is non-existent, resort provided transportation is provided on fee basis. Taxi service to/from Rail stations is prohibitively expensive 30-40 Euros one-way. Seasonal activities and tours, quiet and serene during low occupancy seasons.
not very impressed with this resort. if we were given more information before arrival, it would have been a bit more benefitual. it was out on the middle of no where. no restaurants, no transport, no touring.
We visited Karma in Normandy at the end of October. Both properties are in the small village of Connelles. It is a very small village; there’s not even a small store. The hotel only has a continental breakfast and no other meals. There is a restaurant across the road, with quite reasonable meals. Be warned, though, that they only accept cash, not cards. Everywhere else we went cards were accepted. It is essential that you have a hire car. If you’re arriving into Paris, get one at the airport. Use your phone map app to navigate to the resort (about 2 hours drive). There is a very good licenced supermarket at the nearby town of Val-de-Reuil, about 15 minutes away. You will need to buy food and drinks as there is nothing provided or available at the hotel or in the village. Plan day trips. Spend a day in Rouen and visit the Notre Dame Cathedral, its memorial to Joan of Arc (who was executed there) and the tomb of Richard the Lionheart. Plenty more to see there too. A trip to the Normandy beaches is worthwhile, and visit the medieval port of Honfleur. An hour’s drive to Giverny will see you lost for the afternoon in Monet’s Garden. Also nearby is the picturesque village of Lyons-la-Forêt, a must for any Madam Bovary fans. There’s more, but that’s a taste. We were there in late October.

Our apartment in Manoir des Deux Amants was quite spacious with a well kitted out kitchen. Check it has a corkscrew, as you’ll be screwed without one. France hasn’t heard of screw-top wine bottles yet. We bought one at the supermarket for €1.50, and left it there. I suppose we could have asked reception. It was a great week. …
this place is very far taxi to Ruen is 120 euro round trip taxi from Paris airport 200 euro receptionist Sofia - very inconsiderate. she will charge 20 euro if you want to check in earlier than 4pm. the room is ready and she doesn't care if you're tired or not. you have to pay 20 euro or wait. rent a car is not advisable if you do not have a good internet connection. this place has no signal most of the time. small room upstairs... bathroom toilet downstairs..very stiff stairs... stairs is in the middle of the kitchen. very very small room. another staff Marc will drive you around, a tour guide charges 180 euro/day - he is a nice person.
This property is located perfectly in the northern French countryside about 1 hour and 20 minutes from Paris and only 30 minutes from Rouen. You should have a car to fully enjoy the experience but there are trains and buses nearby should a car not be possible. The location is gorgeous, directly on the Seine, in a beautiful setting. The staff are friendly and accommodating. You simply cannot go wrong with a stay here. We were able to enjoy two days in Paris and two days in Rouen as well as try the restaurants in the neighboring towns (Val Reuille, Romelly, and others). Bottom line this is a wonderful stay and a great location to experience what the Normandy region has to offer.
Nice property; 3 bed apartment very comfortable; dog was welcome and it was great that we had a ground floor apartment; nice area in the grounds to walk him; we loved visiting this beautiful region but you definitely need a car if staying here;
