Bed and breakfast in Saint Saens near Rouen in Normandy France

ID: 500
It is for Jean-Marie's hospitality and charm that you will remember this fantastic value bed and breakfast near Rouen (30 kms). If you are travelling from Calais (2 1/2 hours) to the Dordogne or the SW of France, this really is the perfect spot in which to break your journey being just 5 minutes from exit 11 of the A28 autoroute and exit 10 of the A29 autoroute.

Well hidden from the major roads, the cosy and very comfortable B&B is within walking distance of the centre of the pretty little village of Saine-Saens with its charming little restaurants and shops.

The building itself dates back to the French Revolution, has tons of character and is full of history which the ever-engaging, entertaining and fluent English-speaking Jean-Marie will delight in sharing with you.

He has done a great job of bringing the old building back into the 21st century and today it is a successful marriage of olde worlde charm and modern comforts and conveniences.

If you are able to arrive in decent time, make sure you reserve dinner in advance as it is a real treat with home made local specialities washed down with delicious local cider. The continental breakfast too is something to look forward to with freshly squeezed orange juice being the real highlight

Located on a quiet one-way street, you will have no problem parking outside the B&B. There is free WiFi internet access here.
