Scenic drive from Vernon to Calais

Hi there,

We are driving to Vernon for Easter to see Monets garden. We will be then leaving on Monday the 9th from Calias on the 8pm train back to Folkestone. As we will have all day to travel from Vernon to Calais I wanted to take a more scenic route back through the countryside and perhaps past a chateu rather than straight up the A16. Does anyone have some ideas? Thanks

A number of years ago we were driving from Calais to Paris and stopped at the battlefield at Crecy. I wish I'd had more time there: http://g.co/maps/uvbna

try www.viamichelin.com, and click the "scenic route" button -- click on the small map, and a larger map will open in a new window.

You can then tell it what sort of stops you'd like it to show - restaurants, hotels, tourism sites -- a very powerful way to customize your trip.

Just outside Vernon is the Chateau de la Madeleine. North of Vernon is Les Andelys. Nearby is a very pretty spot called Le Petit Andely. If you park the car in the small square opposite the Hotel "La Chaine d'Or" you can walk a couple of yards by the side of the hotel to the towpath that runs alongside another section of the River Seine.

As you drive further north, the countryside is beautiful around Marseille-en-Beauvasis, Gournay-en-Bray, Neufchatel-en-Bray and around Forges Les Eaux towards Abbeville.
