In the heart of the Normandy countryside, the castle of the Verbosc offers its bed and breakfast at a very affordable rate. Enjoy the tranquillity of this House surrounded by greenery and yet only 35 km from the historical centre of Rouen! The castle of the XVII th century, bricks and stones, extends on a 6 hectare park, with trees and planted with fruit trees, mainly Apple trees. The area is built on the plan of the clos-masures, so characteristic of the Pays de Caux: several outbuildings, some half-timbered, surround the Park. As in any clos-masure, they are spaced from each other. They were thus once protected from the spread of fire. Originally agricultural buildings, most was built in style dwelling places. The remoteness of the homes provides all absolute tranquility! Don't be surprised to see a collection of rare plants at the bend of one of them! Note: Minimum stay of 2 nights.

Peaceful & relaxing place from another era; in this Winter season. Charming & helpful Owner, who knows all the best places around. Friendly guests from various parts of the World, including China, whom we met around a fire, at breakfast. It was magic this morning as we were getting ready to leave, and my young daughter even saw the trees covered in white ice "Frozen"place. I highly recommand it'

I was very happy to have stayed here for 3 days. The chateau is beautiful and have a long history, very well located, and Michel is a host with a great sense of welcome and sharing. We felt at home and enjoyed very much the moments spent with him, and also the other guests, especially during the traditional french breakfast. And if you like nature like me, this is a good place! And thank you again Michel!

Our family (2 adults, 3 children) had a fantastic stay at le Verbosc on our way to, and on our return from our holiday destination further south. The house has a great atmosphere of fading elegance and is in an idyllic location. The hospitality of the host is beyond all expectations and by the time we left it felt more like we were leaving our new french uncle! We'll be back next year..

As we were, my wife and I, looking for a location to spend some days away from our daily routine, we couldn't figure out we would find that lovely place. We were looking for a well-situated B&B in Normandy in order to make some sightseeing in the region (Rouen, Fecamp, Etretat, Jumiège, Caen, Dieppe ...). We did not even think at that time that we would yearly come back. Kindness of the host, rooms nicely furnished, appetizing French breakfasts and wonderful countryside are the main reasons for our adoption of this place as a holiday target. The good advices provided always helped us fully take advantage of our journey and do the most we could with our budget.

" They say that you should never repeat a really terrific holiday or ever tell anybody else about a great find" However, the place I will visit again to repeat a truely memorable holiday will be Verbosc, off the Seine Valley, in the heart of Normandy. Here is the perfect spot to go to experience the peace and tranquility of off-the-beaten-track countryside, away from the noisy/ busy Rouen. This is an authentic French experience in a beautiful and exotic setting, from a by-gone era; that offers guests accomodation in the peaceful setting of carefully tended apple orchards, Surrounded by Woods and nearby historical Ruins, close enough to Unique Pebble beaches and its wonderful seafood restaurants (Fecamp, ). Walk the afternoon away or plan an excursion. There are many choices of what to do. Our hosts were like visiting old friends, a perfect blend of French Aristocratic sensibility, who were considerate, warm and generous with their hospitality, respected our privacy, but at the same time, if requested, could produce a splendid local meal, knew the best restaurants, organized daytrips to dozens of magic places, were knowledgeable about the cultural elements and very savy about where to shop for wonderful food. We will never forget the terrific breakfasts of crispy bread & croissants, served with home-made Jams and Honey. But most importantly! the chance meeting with Marc van Delft, a famous Dutch Pianist and composer, who happened to spend a few days while we were there, and treated us to an impromptu Recital, on the family Grand piano Simply Unforgettable. Philippe and Juarsah de Villermont
