The Haute-Normandie region

In the heart of Normandy, in a deep valley next to the beautiful River Risle. Le Bec Hellouin is officially classed as one of the most beautiful villages in France. Its still active abbey dates back to before William the Conqueror and provided many of the Archbishops of Canterbury following the conquest. The area is full of history, dating back to the Norman era, with more modern chateaux providing many sites of interest. Rouen is only 40 minutes away to satisfy the need for shopping. Paris can be reached easily by road or by train making for a great day-trip.

The Normandy harbours - Honfleur, Deauville and Trouville are within easy reach providing ideal days away and opportunities for habour-side dining. The d-day beaches are Bayeaux are not much further away.

Le Bec-Hellouin

Every year around mid-July, Le Bec Hellouin has its saint's festival with a village meal, fireworks and a "foire-a-tout" on the Sunday. The grounds of the abbey of Le Bec are open all year round - guided tours are also available, showing the working of a modern abbey. The "voie verte" (green way) is long distance footpath linking Le Bec Hellouin and Evreux - great for longer walks or cycling.

Brionne is the nearest town, with a large market on Sundays - lots of stalls with wonderful cheese, meat, vegetables and salad. Bernay is slightly further away - a larger town with a hypermarket for those essential wine purchases.

The Chateau of Champs de Bataille is a beautiful restored chateau with medieval gardens. The chateau also has a wonderful golf course. The Chateau d'Harcourt has a famous arboretum.
