Hoist the mainsail! The Armada is back from June 8 to 18, 2023!
With family or friends, come and see the most beautiful sailing ships in the world in Rouen.
Choose to stay in a quiet place and only 30 minutes by train from the capital of Normandy. No more parking problems!
Located at 7 mn from the SNCF station of Serqueux, our old cheese farm will be the ideal base to enjoy the event without stress.
After having walked the platforms all day, you will enjoy a peaceful and relaxing environment, far from the tumult of the city.
If you're looking for a nature break in Normandy to recharge your batteries, our trailer is the perfect choice.
In the middle of nature, at the end of a dead end street, our property extends over 8 hectares of meadows bordered by hedges surrounding a stone building dating from 1825.
You will be able to live a unique experience in Normandy in the middle of Connemara ponies and numerous wild or domestic animals which reside there.
In addition to our ponies and llamas, you may see deer at sunrise, or fox cubs playing in the meadows.
In the warmth of your sleeping bag, after having admired a magnificent sunset, you will contemplate the stars on summer evenings, and fall asleep to the cry of the owl!
Close to the ponies and llamas, you will sleep in our bohemian caravan comfortably equipped for 2 people + 1 extra person
(if more than 3 persons, possibility of renting a shepherd's wagon for one person or a tent for 2 persons, see other ads)
Bed linen, towels and bathrobes are provided.

Less than an hour from Rouen, Amiens, Dieppe or Beauvais, both isolated from the outside world and close to the centers of activity, you will stay in a haven of peace.
In the heart of the Pays de Bray, taste the local products (Neufchâtel cheese in the forefront, but not only ...) and discover the Norman countryside, on foot, on horseback, by bike.
Hiking trails are accessible from the property.
For the most courageous, the Green Avenue will take you to Dieppe, also accessible by car in less than an hour. A seaside town in full development, Dieppe offers a wide range of activities, shops, outings, cinema, casino, bars and restaurants, the port, the beach and ferry departures to England.
Once in Dieppe, you will not be far from Varengeville and its marine cemetery where Georges Braque is buried, Veules les Roses and its cressonnières and the smallest river in France. Continuing along the Alabaster coast, discover Fécamp and the Benedictine, Etretat and its famous needle, then Le Havre and the hanging gardens.
Cross the magnificent Normandy bridge and you will arrive in Honfleur which deserves a romantic stroll, a little further, Deauville, Cabourg and the whole Nacre coast.
Inland, you can visit two of the most beautiful villages in France: Gerberoy, less than 40 minutes away, or Lyons la Forêt surrounded by its magnificent beech forest.
Golf enthusiasts will find their happiness on the green of Saint Saens before having a drink or lunch at the Entrepote which we recommend.
In 45 minutes, you will be in the heart of Rouen, the city of a hundred steeples. You will visit the cathedral, illuminated every summer with a sound and light show, the Joan of Arc memorial, stroll through the narrow streets of Old Rouen and its craftsmen's stalls, in the "rue du Gros" and its shop windows or along the quays where the Rouen ARMADA is held every 5 years (from June 8 to 18, 2023)
In the immediate vicinity, Forges les Eaux, a former spa town, is an active little town where you will find all the necessary shops, bars, restaurants, banks as well as sports facilities (swimming pool, Dojo etc...) etc... Take a walk around the lake and in the Epinay wood, have a drink at the Grand Hotel bar, relax at the Spa or try your luck at the Casino Barrière. Enjoy the races at the Mauquenchy racecourse on meeting days.

All around, many farms offer visits and activities (donkey milk soap making in Gaillefontaine, donkey rides in Beaubec La Rosière, cooking workshops at the Louvicamp Farm ....)

For the same reasons, the gate at the entrance must always be closed after each visit.
Please be aware that they live their lives to the fullest and can be quite demonstrative at times (especially the peacocks :))

Great stay in Valerie's caravan! It (the caravan :) is as cute as in my dreams and Valerie is a very welcoming and available hostess. The setting is very bucolic and the surroundings offer a wide variety of walks and bike rides.
I recommend Valerie's delicious breakfasts and the (free) rental of electric bikes on the "voie verte".
I will come back with great pleasure because it is the ideal place to disconnect and recharge.
Very pleasant place, quiet, rocked by the song of the birds, charming hosts, ideal weekend for the children around the campfire and surrounded by animals! Dieppe accessible for the beach, forges les eaux for the swimming pool, the green avenue for the bicycle, perfect weekend, thank you we will return!
