We stayed here for two nights as a change from central hotels. It is a beautiful house, modernised but still retaining immense charm. It shows its age here and there, but that's part of its charm too. The location is delightfully quiet, but also its drawback. It's necessary to take taxis in and out of Rouen, at about 20 euros each way, and it's hard to find. Using the house number is useless, and taxis coming out of Rouen to take you back in seemed to get lost regularly. It's best to ask Madame to book them for you, which she's very pleased to do, and she tells them how to find her.
Madame is delightful, and I would hesitate to call someone so proper by her first name, and she much appreciates guests speaking French. Her English is, in fact, very good, but she doesn't like to let on, and why should she?
We had a delightful stay, enjoyed the lack of TV in our room and also in everyone else's. Very calm and restful.
