Vic & Math were wonderful hosts and made sure my stay with them was perfect. I was made to feel very welcome and had every need taken care of. Thank you for the wonderful experience!
Vic and Math, we felt very comfortable in your garden. The contact with you was very pleasant. We had a wonderful time in and around Rouen. Thank you very much.
We had a wonderful one night stay!
A warm welcome from the whole family, in a quiet, flower-filled setting.
The city center is very quickly accessible thanks to the nearby transport network.
We would be delighted to return.
Thanks to Vic and Math for the warm welcome they gave us. They are very attentive to our needs, caring and eager to please us. Thanks to both of them
Very positive experience at Vic et Math, thanks to a warm welcome and well thought-out facilities. Ideal location for getting to the Armada by bus.
Warm welcome and pleasant little family. Surprised by the pitch with the only entrance on a narrow driveway with gravel, not suitable for our large motorhome (7.50m), especially when a second one arrives and by the disturbance of the passage of other campers, lack of privacy.
So we didn't stay the second night.
However, we were able to watch the armada before the yachts set sail.
Having said that, we'd recommend this place for quiet camping in the woods, thanks to the friendliness of the hosts, the services on offer and the proximity of Rouen.
A very warm welcome to Vic, Matthieu and their toddlers. A haven of nature just a stone's throw from Rouen, ideal for relaxing after a busy day visiting the city and the Armada. A gentle way of life, simplicity and kindness are the watchwords of this family. Thank you for everything.
Very good stay with Vic and Mathieu, super-sympathetic hosts with good advice and a very pleasant setting. We were able to enjoy the armada without having to take the car thanks to the public transport close to the house.
Excellent stay! Very warm welcome, Vic and Math are really available while being perfectly discreet. Excellent home-cooked breakfast. Bus stop just a few minutes from the house and town center also a few minutes away by car. Highly recommended.
We chose to stay with Vic and Math during the Armada and were delighted to discover their charming and authentic surroundings. A quiet, peaceful time with lots to talk about. We were able to recharge our batteries and recommend this place. Thank you for your welcome and kindness.
Friendly couple, good welcome
Super welcome with lots of advice and kindness!!!!
I highly recommend
Nice people, beautiful place. Thank you
Everything was perfect :) even if it was in your garden, thank you for your warm welcome
Very pleasant and quiet stay under the cover of the trees of a charming undergrowth, 15 min from the center of Rouen by public transport.
Vic and Math are naturally welcoming, simple and warm. They are hosts who like to communicate and are very considerate.
Do not hesitate to visit them!
We have spent a quiet night next to the house of this very friendly and supportive family. Everything was ready and we have felt welcome immediately. It is always great to have a chat with the people who share there homes and that makes the big difference. Many thanks!
We can recommend this place completely!
We were very satisfied with our stay at vinciane and Matthieu's place. In spite of the uncertain weather, they did everything to make sure we were well installed.
We pitched our tent on the forest side, the ground is a little bit downhill which was a lot better for the kids, but we can also pitch it on the front ground where it is quite flat.
Their house is located in a quiet place, on the heights of the city ..... The situation and the hospitality of the occupants deserve this effort.
I highly recommend this charming meeting point of a growing family ????
Nice and pleasant welcome in an environment that one would not suspect when going to Rouen. Indeed, one has more the impression to be in an atmosphere of "small mountain", than of "edge of the Seine". The atmosphere is bucolic with magnificent trees. The calm which reigns is only "disturbed" by the song of the birds. Vic and Mat offered me a simple and warm welcome, unfortunately, we only had a little time to go further in the exchanges!
A hell of a little lady who greets you immediately by your first name. A smile up to both ears. A strong sparkle. Certainly, not an enormous space but quite sufficient to spend a secure night in the peace and to visit Rouen... Superb city.
Hello, I had a nice stay. The hosts are very welcoming and have good advice for visiting Rouen. The breakfast was very copious! Thank you for your welcome, I recommend
