If you are looking for a unique place to stay in the heart of Rouen, this is one of them. We have put a lot of love into renovating this unique space under the rooftop of our 300 year old building. This light and airy loft would have once been used to dry silk during the textile boom of the late 15th century, and is now not unlike a “tiny home” or a cabin. The apartment has a compact but charming kitchen with everything you could need to cook yourselves a simple meal, or enjoy a morning coffee. The kitchen windows look out over the rooftop patio, which you have access to just out your front door, and it is all yours during your stay!
The living space is quite open, it feels like a treehouse or cabin, due to the thick oak beams running this way and that.
The main sleeping area is located up on a mezzanine accessed by a sloped ladder/stairs with hand rails. The queen sized bed is a very comfortable, low-set futon style bed.
The living area is very charming, decorated with treasures that we have hand picked from local markets, and also brand new furnishings, like the fold out couch (Intended only for children as this apartment not suitable for multiple adults). There is a wonderful vinyl music player with records which we invite you to enjoy (but also ask you to handle these with care) This player also has a Bluetooth function so that you can play your own music. The tv has access to Netflix, great for a rainy day or quiet evening in.
The bathroom is spacious, with a HUGE walk-in shower (1.4metres by 1metre) vanity, large mirror, brand new hot water system, toilet, and window.
There is a stylish and practical closet area where you can put your baggage and unpack your clothing, including drawers shelves and a hanging space.
There is a little reading nook area with a large bean bag by the front windows. Perfect for an afternoon nap.

The ROOFTOP PATIO- as I have already mentioned, is just out your entry door. Here you will find plants, a soft seating area with coffee table and parasol, a table with chairs. By night it is a magical little oasis, lit by tiny twinkly lights. Great for an evening wine before heading off to dinner and discovering Rouen’s gorgeous streets.
**Please note** This space is for the reserved guests only, inviting extra guests is not allowed. We also ask that you keep noise to a respectful level here in respect for our neighbours ;) Smoking IS permitted on the rooftop patio, but please use ashtrays provided. The patio is for your private use during your stay, however it's possible I might need to access this area for maintenance reasons (preparing for a storm for example) but I will ALWAYS send you a message beforehand to let you know :)

You also have access to the shared laundry on the ground floor. Here you can use both the washing machine (soap provided) and the clothes dryer, there is an iron and ironing board at your disposal also. (if you would like a clothes drying wrack to dry your clothes inside the apartment or on your terrace just ask!)

Just a final note, we want to make sure that you are aware that to access the apartment you will need to climb stairs, the apartment is located on the third floor. The bed is located on a mezzanine accessible by a ladder with rail. Please view photos carefully before booking :)

We know that you will love this little home perched among the rooftops of this medieval city!

Also, if you ever need anything, if you have a problem or a question, don’t hesitate to ask, we will be happy to help. :)

A dónde irás

Rouen, Normandie, Francia

Our street is cute and lively and is just around the corner from a large and beautiful park, great for picnics and there is a nice children's playground. Also in this park is the gorgeous Abbaye Saint Ouen, as well as the town hall. There is a bakery, supermarket, post office AND and cash machine right out the front door of the building which is very very convenient. The apartment is perfectly situated to see all the sites of Rouen. You are in a quarter that is quite arty and local, so it's easier to find great places to eat and drink without getting caught in tourist traps. (see huge list of our favourites below)
Just around the corner is a fantastic little street called Rue Eau de Robec (2 minutes by foot) this street has a tiny river running its length, and is full of little restaurants and bars the whole way up. There is also everything that you could need for everyday life within walking distance, as just around the corner is Rue Armand Carrel, this is where the french locals shop for food! You will find 3 great bakeries, a wonderful cheese shop, 3 butchers, 2 pharmacies, fresh seafood, chocolate shops, a weekend market where you can find some great local produce, and just past that is another very large super market.

The weekend markets are held in Place Saint Marc (5 mins walk) Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from about 8am - 2pm. (Pssst local tip!: Friday mornings are the BEST to find an antique or a unique souvenir in the flee market section, dont be afraid to barter a little. Saturdays and Sundays are a vibrant and busseling farmers market. Sundays in particular are special because you can buy some local produce like hams and cheeses and baguettes, take them to a table at one of the surrounding cafes, order a drink and eat your market food at their tables :) Remember, this is only available on Sundays because the cafes do not serve their own food that day)

We will provide you with a small map and are happy to point out where all of the best places are ;)

For your information if you want to do some planning in advance and look them up, here are a few of our favourite bars and restaurants and music venues.

RESTAURANTS:

Markette - A cosy and locally run restaurant, where you feel welcome. Small menu but that means its fresh and good! Mostly french style food but with international influences. Normally there is a vegetarian option on the menu :) Its located in a cute little street too.

L’Espiguette - A small and very popular resto serving French cuisine (best outdoor patio in town, so cuuute! ) - recommend making a reservation if it during the weekend, and ask for a spot on the patio if its nice weather

Cafe l’Epoque - Traditional style French Brasserie (It's like being in the movie Amelie ;) )

There are also two good noodle restaurants on Rue Eau de Robec,
Noodle Shop - Japanese style noodle
Larhman - Chinese noodles (handmade dumplings!)

For True french savory crepes (Galettes) we like - la Cornaelle on rue Eau de Robec (just around the corner from us), and La Régalière (a 15 minute walk away)

Bolibol -For a healthy and fresh option, we like Bolibol. Also very good vegan or vegetarian food options. The upstairs is cosy with really nice decor. Plus the food is delicious.

La Petite Auberge- French cuisine, traditional, and highly recommended in winter, because its so cosy! But they also have a patio for the summer months.

La Tavern Saint Amant- cosy old style tavern with late night food.

La Walsheim - French Germanic cuisine, great sour crout, plus MANY other options, theres something everyone. Family friendly and open late!

Le Trend Burger - GOOOOOD burgers with interesting options like the Normandy burger which includes camembert and apple!

Le Red Rooster - American style diner burger joint! But good quality. (Wouldn't recommend if you want to sit outside)

L’Oritano- our favourite little Italian place in Rouen. (And one of our favs in general) Lovely people, a genius Italian in the kitchen making his family recipes. Ever changing chalk board menu full of different little plates, you’ll want to try them all. Special mention for the homemade buffala! Yuuuum!!!

CrunchyMellow- if you just feel like a slice of pizza

La Couronne - The ultimate french dining experience. Traditional, a little old fashioned, a LITTLE pricely $$ and a pinch touristy BUT in saying that TOTALLY worth it. We are talking grey-haired waiter in a bow-tie opening a silver cloche and carving your fish for you. (Fun Factoid - this is the restaurant where Julia Childs first fell in love with French cuisine, and if you don't know who Julia Childs is watch the Meryl Streep movie 'Julie and Julia' or just google it ;) )
Tip: Order the Sol Mernier with a half bottle of Chablis.

Fujiya Sushi- nice Japanese restaurant, 15 minutes walk from the apartment.

ALSO something NOT TO MISS in Rouen- Place Saint Marc Markets (Fri, Sat, Sun), but specifically on SUNDAY (9am-1pm) you can go there and buy up some local produce, like cheese, ham, fruit, tapenades ETC find a seat in any of the little cafes surrounding the market place, and enjoy your market food right there on their tables, you just have to order a wine or beer or coffee from the cafe you are at. Its a great place to people-watch and get a sense of how the locals live.
TIP: It's a good idea to take a little wooden board/plate, and little knife with you. Just don't forget to bring them back home to our place please! ;)


BARS:

Le Petit Bar- Tiny charming cocktail bar in 1930's style Great for an after dinner cocktail, or a date ;)

Vixen - a funky bar where you can drink, chat, eat some hot greasy nibblies. ;) I would just like to mention the consistently good playlist here too ;)

Le Trois Pièces - A bar with three levels, so plenty of places to find a seat, live music in the basement (entry fee for the concerts)

Le Saint Maclou - Lively and local. Family run, cosy bar. Often kitch French pop music is playing... and often french people singing and dancing along to said music! :) It's fantastic ;)

La Fée Torchette - Cocktails, and party atmosphere. Open later than most places, busy when it gets late.

Ghetto Blaster - Illumunated disco dance floor! Must I say more?! :D Old-school dance music (mostly 80's - 2000's), tiny and lively and fun.

Ragnar Brasserie Beer garden- A beer garden in a church ground! By 2023 there will also be a functioning Brewery inside the church, bar and restaurant. But for now make the most of this really cool place and have a drink in their garden :) A must.

La Friche Lucien - Set within the grounds of an old abandoned train station, this space has been taken over by an outdoor bar, food trucks, shipping containers turned into boutiques or DJ stations. There are lots of scheduled live events so be sure to look up the program online before you go. It's open only in the warmer months so check that online too. It's a little walk 15-20minutes, you'll have to cross the bridge to the left side! But its a nice walk and it worth it. Be sure to get your photo taken in the photo booth to remember the moment :)

Brazil - Great for a summer drink on the terrace.

Le Petit Verdot - Wine and cheese plate anyone?

Antico Caffé - Worth it for the location alone. It's in a charming cobble stoned town square facing the gorgeous Saint Maclou Church. Serving alcohol, coffee and meals and only open until 10 pm. It has a little Paris feel to it, because eveyone faces the same direction on the patio to admire the view and also people-watch.
My tip: Hot summer day = afternoon SPRITZ cocktail :)

La Son Du Cor - Very local place. Great in summer, sit outside and watch the games of 'Petanque' going on just next to you.



CAFES:

Station Service- A place with good coffee and an all day cooked breakfast!

Couleur Cafe- Good coffee (including lattes and cappuccinos) good tea list. Cosy for a winters day, and has a nice terrace for when it’s sunny.

Citizen- Great coffee. Serves Breakfast, lunch. Closed sundays.

Cafe L’Époque- Also mentioned in the restaurant section, but this is a nice place for a morning coffee, pick up a croissant or something in the boulangerie next door and sit down for a coffee in the Belle Époque. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time and traveled to Paris too! ;)

Antico Caffé - Sit on a Paris style patio facing the BEAUTIFUL Saint Maclou Church. Italian style coffees, cold drinks including alcohol. You can also get a bite to eat here, I haven't yet tried their meals so let me know! :)

Dame Cakes- if you like large tea cups, tasty cakes, and frills, this is the tea-house for you. (Its even just worth a look at the exterior of the building, very pretty)

Prélude café - Good for a coffee and a bite to eat. Plus its near our favourite record store ;) ;) Aaaaand when you're finished there you can go around the corner to see where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake in the Place de Vieux Marché. Why not!




LIVE MUSIC:

Le 106 - a great live music venue with a bar, located across the river in an old shipping warehouse. International line up, check their website for current concerts and ticket availability. (You can also buy tickets at the FNAC)

La Trois Piece- A bar with intimate live concerts downstairs, just up the street from the apartment.

Le Chapelle Corneille (or Cornelius Chapel) - A 17th century Chapel that hosts performances ranging from operas to electro dance music! This music venue offers some of the latest sound technologies, such as a HUGE sound-reflecting sphere (that also looks very pretty) Check online for tickets and concert line-up.

Opera de Rouen - We have an Opera House :)

The Fury Bar - Live music Friday and Saturday nights. Mostly rock, casual groovy place.

Hipster Cafe - Bar with live concerts - open until 2am (closed Mondays)

I am an Australian now living in France with my boyfriend Guillaume. I am an artist, I create works in Acrylic paint, and have been exhibiting my works for over 15 years. I am friendly, and open minded. Other than art, I love gardening, cooking, live music, a good conversation over a tasty coffee. I like to make an effort to enjoy the small things everyday. That’s important!
