About this location
The Haute-Normandie region
Normandy is made up of five rich and varied counties:- Seine maritime, Eure, Orne, Calvados and Manche. Aumale is within the Seine maritime region of Normandy, approximately, two hours from Paris. In-between the seine valley and channel coast, famous for its dramatic cliff lines, rolling open countryside and the twist and turns of the River Seine. We are on the border of the Picardy or Picardie region:
Normandy, with its proximity to Paris for Disneyland together with a number of fashionable seaside resorts like Dieppe, Hornflour or Tourville along its coast indicate that this region has everything you could wish for; Etretat, Fecamp and Dieppe are three of the coastal areas well worth a mention.
Dieppe is a gem of a town. Famous for its Saturday morning market. Many of the streets in the old town just have to be explored. A majority of these are pedestrianised and it is delightful to view the historic buildings dating back to the17th century on foot. ...soaking in the atmosphere created by an abundance of timbered houses and huge chateaux set in the circuit of a glorious medieval past.
People who have stayed here have been to visit the historical world war II sites in Mont St Michel, Vimy and the Somme. Locally, towns like Rouen and Amiens, are truly places of inspiration. Indeed, Rouen, is known as the jewel in the crown -considered to be the capital of upper Normandy- Itself only half an hours drive from Aumale. The neighbouring county of Picardy (Picardie) also has long sandy beaches by the Somme estuary in the west.
Aumale is a very popular base with Parisians, especially for the beach!
Quiet a historic town itself, with many of the half-timbered houses so characteristic in this region. It's not surprising then that you won't find a single charity shop in the town-it has a diverse range of specality shops like patisserie bakeries, butchers, delicatessens and an anglers accessories shop, which by the way sells the fishing licence (~5 Euros per day).
There seems to have been a deliberate choice to place the only supermarket (Intermarche) just outside town. A tourist office in the centre will keep you updated as to what is going on in the locality.
We are pleasantly amazed by the different things we find to do here. During the summer we found an archery club just near the two lakes and by the villa. We located a delightful horse riding school three miles from Aumale-They have been more than willing to take on the novice rider!
During Summer, we learnt that Aumale has a public heated Open Air Pool in the town centre. The nearest Indoor pools are in the towns of Formarie ~15km away and Grandvillers 20Km-this town has a larger indoor pool.
There is a Quad Biking arena not far from the town.
Eating out in Aumale is affordable as it not only has a pizza and Turkish Kebab restaurant in the centre but there is another pizza place just behind the Ebenezer which is set by the waterfront. This same country road also leads into the town centre.

Nestled in the quaint countryside of Normandy, Ebenezer Guest House also affords the convenience of Aumale's nearby shops.The first evening, we enjoyed walking along the lane, over the stream, an… More

"Excellent spacious accommodation for large parties"
I stayed at Emmanuelle Mansions along with my family for Christmas 2012 there were 17 of us in total ranging in age from 18 to 86! We also hired the smaller property Hidden Gem to accommodate some of the younger members of the family.
The property was lovely and warm and the bedrooms were really spacious, beds all made up for us on arrival with nice duvet sets. If I had a criticism of the bedrooms I would say the wardrobes were too small and there wasn't enough hanging space - or do I have too many clothes!! It was handy having the two large bathrooms and 3 toilets when everyone was trying to get ready in the morning. The older members of the party had the downstairs bedrooms as the stairs are quite steep.
I especially liked the comfy settees in the property which in the past has been lacking in properties in France that we have hired, we all sat around in the lounge area every night and played lots of games in comfort. We did however take a few of our own camping chairs as from past experience in other properties you can never get everyone sat down all together on settees and dining chairs of an evening get a bit uncomfortable after a while! The house is very sociable as the downstairs is open plan so you don't miss anything if its your turn to cook you can still join in with conversations!! The youngsters especially enjoyed retreating to the loft area and watching dvd's and having their own space, it is a very attractive feature to the property, also everyone enjoyed playing table tennis in the converted garage area - hours were spent in there by the men with a few beers!!
There is so much to see in the surrounding area, we had a super trip to Rouen on Christmas Eve which is a beautiful city well worth a visit. We also enjoyed the walk into Aumale from the back of the property, we didn't touch a main road and it's a lovely walk and a really interesting little town. We didn't eat out there were too many of us and we were so comfortable at the house we felt it would have been a bit of a waste of money, we enjoyed our mealtimes all sat around the large table. Catering was very easy there are lots of pots, pans, crockery and utensils together with a useful cupboard of spices etc, I did miss my double range oven though!
The owner Bertram met us when we arrived and showed us how everything worked, he was very helpful and did everything he could to make our stay enjoyable, on our return he has also very promptly repaid us back our breakage deposit. Paul who helps Bertram manage the property has been really helpful, he is quick to e-mail back any answers to questions you might have and is extremely well organised and friendly.
An excellent Christmas was had by all young and old and it was extremely good value for money.

"Spacious and well appointed holiday homes in a pleasant environment"
For a family reunion at New Year 2013 we stayed in Ebenezer and Hidden Gem cottages, with 6 adults and 5 children. There was plenty of space for all en we appreciated that there were several lounging areas with comfortable furniture so that it even was occasionally possible to read a book, with all these 2 to 8 years old boys around.
We were welcomed by the owner, who h'd come all the way from London; when we arrived, everything was in a splendid state.
We used only one of the kitchen/dining areas and even if our company had been complete (14 people) there would have been enough space at the dining table. There were plenty of kitchen utensils and cooking facilities, a freezer and two fridges. The central heating functioned perfectly.
We coped with the absence of Wifi internet by purchasing a low priced prepaid data mobile SIM-card (SFR has the best 3G coverage there) on a mobile phone and tethering the other devices from it.
My wife and I had the privilege to sleep next to the waterfall behind the Hidden Gem and hardly ever we slept so well.
For continental visitors it may be useful to bring a few adapters as most of the wall outlets are UK style.
In case you rent both properties, be aware that there is no internal corridor; there is 10 meters of public road between them.
In summary: a nice place to spend a Christmas holidays with a large family.
