Les Andelys : to discover a vertiginous village !
Located 45 kilometers from our establishment, go and meet the splendid village of Les Andelys, cradle of Richard the Lionheart.
If you need inspiration, here is a visit that will delight you!
Grab your backpack and a good pair of shoes and head to Les Andelys, in the Eure region.
When you arrive, you'll be amazed by the imposing silhouette of the Château-Gaillard that will take shape before you.
So what does this city of character nestled on its chalky cliffs contain?
First of all, it is important to know that this village, bordering the Seine river, is divided into two very distinct districts:
The Petit-Andely and the Grand-Andely, built by Richard the Lionheart at the end of the 12th century.
We suggest you start this visit with the picturesque Château-Gaillard, classified as a historical monument and source of inspiration for many painters, poets and writers.
We assure you, when you see it, you will understand why!
These perched vestiges offer a splendid view on the Seine river and the Norman roofs of the city of Andelys. A visit of this fortress with its imposing keep is possible.
Continue your visit by strolling along the banks, linking the small and the large Andely. This walk will take you straight to the collegiate church Notre-Dame, in the flamboyant gothic and Renaissance style, renowned for the beauty of its 16th century stained glass windows.
Continue towards the Nicolas Poussin museum and the legendary Fountain of Sainte Clotilde and its miraculous water!
Still have a little time left?
Admire the beautiful houses nestled along the waterfront, take a detour in front of the Saint-Jacques of Andelys hospital (classified as a historical monument), or head for the Saint-Sauveur church, guardian of one of the most beautiful organs in France.
Combine restful nights at The Originals Access Hotel Rouen Sud Oissel, and moments of discovery, in a historic and green setting.
