"Connelles in Haute-Normandie" Connelles by Beausoleil

Connelles Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 8 photos

This is the Moulin de Connelles and it is a lovely hotel, restaurant and time share right on the Seine near Giverny. The hotel is lovely. The restaurant is very very good. The time share is adequate and lots of fun because you get to use the hotel facilities for the price of a timeshare. They have a pool on a little island in the Seine and you can use little rowboats they have available for guests.

People drive up the river and dock at the restaurant. It's quite elegant.

This is a great base for visiting much of Normandy. Highly recommended.

See Things to Do in my Rouen Travel Page for more travel ideas.

If you are staying at the Timeshare at the Moulin

The top photo is the chateau and it is a lovely hotel on a branch of the Seine. The restaurant is excellent and boaters dock there for dinner.

However, if you are staying at the timeshare, you will not stay in the chateau. There is a long two-story building behind the chateau with adequate parking and that is the timeshare. Here is a photo of our table, door and window. I might add that the window looked out over the Seine and as we ate our evening meals here, boaters would drive by and wave to us. There was also wildlife. We enjoyed the antics of a ragondin as we ate. It's not a chateau but it's very nice and the location is spectacular.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lovely, lovely base for visiting Normandy
  • Cons:It really is out in the country so if you like cities . . .
  • In a nutshell:An absolute dream if you like to get away from the madding crowd.
