Alan Rogers Review

Caravanning Château Gaillard is located midway between Paris and Rouen and is well situated for exploring the Seine valley. The site has a total of 310 pitches, 38 of which are set aside for touring (with 16A electricity) and a further 30 are available for tents. The remainder are occupoiied by privately owned mobile homes. Pitches are of a good size (some up to 200 sq.m) and many are well shaded. On-site amenities include a heated swimming pool and a bar/snack bar in peak season. Various sports competitions are organised in July and August. There is direct access, via a footpath, to the Seine where the launching of small boats and fishing is possible.

The Seine valley is very popular with hikers, and there are some excellent walks along its banks, making use of the river’s many small ferries. Château Gaillard, about 6 km. from the site, was built by Richard the Lionheart in just one year, 1197. It has a wonderful strategic location, overlooking the Seine and Les Andelys and should not be missed. Monet’s celebrated garden at Giverny is close at hand, and both Paris and Rouen can be reached in less than an hour.
