This morning, we leave Le Manoir 9:00am. Visit a land
and history and legend. Immerse yourself in the Pays
Seine-Eure region by visiting Louviers Pont de L’arche

and culture stretching back into the Middle Ages. And
the architecture is simply stunning from Vernon stone
and half-timbered houses right up to the most contemporary
of buildings. Certainly, a journey not to be missed.
We leave the resort at 9:00am. First stop of the
day is at Chateau Gaillard, it is a ruined medieval
castle, located 90 metres (300 ft) above the commune
of Les Andelys overlooking the River Seine, in
the Eure department of Normandy, France. Here, you
will have some free time for sight-seeing on the hill
above. Although the castle is the main attraction,
you will also want to stroll along the banks of the
Seine river in Les Andelys, located 90 metres below
the castle. It is a pleasant village and you can
see the Hospice of Saint-Jacques and a gothic style
church as well as visit the Nicolas-Poussin Museum.
Enthusiasts of castles will also enjoy a visit to
the Chateau de Champ-de-Bataille to the west of
Les Andelys which is a complete contrast
to Chateau-Guillard, being the 17th century
castle surrounded by formal gardens.
Today at 9:00am, we will head to Rouen Cathedral
is a Roman Catholic church in Rouen, Normandy,
France. With this striking Gothic architecture and
beautiful stain glass, this is one of the main attractions
in Rouen. A church was already present at the location
in the late 4th century, and eventually, a cathedral was
established in Rouen as in Poitiers. It was enlarged
by St. Ouen in 650 and visited Charlemagne in 769.
The most famous paintings of the cathedral were
done by the Impressionist artist Claude Monet,
who produced a series of paintings of the buildings
showing the same scene at different times
of the day and in different weather conditions.
Today is at your leisure to further explore the Normandy
town of Connelles. Or go to Eiffel Tower about an
hour and 30mins drive from the resort. The Eiffel Tower
is a wrought iron lattice tower on the Champ de Mars
in Paris, France. It is named after the engineer Gustave
Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.
We leave the resort at 9:00am. Our first stop of the
day at Zadig & Volaire. If you are in France and want
to get an insight into the fashion of the locals, stop by
this store and find yourself among some pretty clothes
and accessories for both men and women. Have lunch
at Gill, claimed to be one of Rouen’s best-kept gourmet
secrets, Gill offers splendid food in a stylish décor.
