If you want a weekend getaway, book a room right away at L’Epicerie du Pape.
25 km from Rouen, on the road to Giverny, you’ll discover a former café epicery transformed into a bed&breakfast. There, in the middle of the hydrangea gardens and roses, the 2 rooms are just like home but better, there is even a little cabin in the back of the garden with a shower-trough and wooden stove and breakfasts are insane (artisan apple juice, farmer’s yogurt, homemade cakes and croissants…)
We nap in between the thrifted objects, we chill in the Puck caravan to read and, at nightfall, we go horseback riding at the Val Saint-Pierre stables, we borrow bikes to get lost in the countryside or we improvise a dinner in the furnished kitchen under the glass roof.
For the girls, the Spa Nuxe from the hotel La Licorne in Lyons la Forêt is only 10 minutes away. Or how to mix a delicious family weekend with a (very nice) personal treat…
