The Valley of the Eure and the Seine, 100km from Paris
At the heart of Normandy, 100km from Paris, welcome to THE ideal destination for a holiday or weekend break, just 30 minutes from Rouen and Giverny and 20 minutes from Evreux and Neubourg. Here the quotation ‘water, water everywhere…’ is very true ! The landscape has been shaped by water : the Seine with its amazing meander, limestone cliffs and splendid views, the delightful rivers Eure and Iton, lakes with water sports and activities. The countryside is covered with forests and woodland, most notably the 4,600 hectare Bord-Louviers national forest. Journey through time and admire the rich heritage : from the Vikings to Richard the Lionheart, from builders to boatmen, from medieval times to the newest ‘commune’ in France. From ancient buildings of Vernon stone and half-timbered houses through to the most modern of constructions.
It is a destination for absolutely everyone : nightbirds, foodies, sports enthusiasts, nature lovers, history buffs and children ! There is no excuse to be bored ! Play golf near the hills by the Seine or along the Eure, go cable skiing at Léry-Poses outdoor activity centre (beaches with lifeguards, crazy golf, amusement park, cycle trails, rock climbing ; rowing, etc.), microlite flying, aqua trekking on the Eure, canoe course between Acquigny and Criquebeuf-sur-Seine, cruise along the Seine, unique experiences at Biotropica Zoo (alligators, piranas, anaconda, red pandas, otters, mini-farm...), walks with donkeys, lots of signposted walks in forests, beside rivers and lakes (troglodyte dwellings, panoramic views, bird reserve, Voire Vert traffic-free ‘greenway’), aquatic complex, paintball, cookery courses and workshops. And if you are feeling peckish after all that, there is a huge choice of places to eat : bistros, gastronomic or traditional restaurants, creperies, pizzerias and guinguettes (waterside cafés). You really are spoilt for choice ! For evening entertainment : dinner-show at Moulin d’Andé, wonderful performances at the Moulin de Louviers, Scène Nationale, Theatre de l’Arsenal and Theatre Ephéméride. And why not an evening at the cinema followed by a trip to a discotheque !
