This is our second pre Christmas break here. The peace, quiet mists and views of the Seine all add to the magic of the retreat. You are always made to feel welcome. We had just been recovering from flu so the rest was most welcome, the only problem was the cold shower on our last morning. But this is France.

This complex is part of the Diamond Resorts International Group. It is on the same site as Le Manoir des Deux Amants, where we stayed last year. The apartments are well presented and have all the basics you require - in our case spread over 2 floors with a lovely balcony overlooking the river.

Parking spaces are always available within the secure compound. There is a small indoor swimming pool, with sauna and jacuzzi. There is also an outdoor pool when the weather is warmer!

The staff are excellent and are very welcoming. There is a small shop on site selling a range of essentials but you will need to visit a local supermarket for more major shops - Pitres Lidl is the nearest. Pastries and baguettes are available for collection from Reception provided they are ordered by 1930 the night before. If you need petrol/diesel you will need to stock up before returning to Connelles as there is no nearby petrol station.

There is now a restaurant opposite the site called Le Comptoir - well worth a visit although the small menu can be a little disappointing if eating there every night! A 3 course meal for two with wine comes to around 55 Euros - good value. The interior is modern and fresh and the staff excellent. The restaurant is owned and run by the nearby exclusive hotel - Le Moulin - where a meal is considerably more expensive although the ambience is superb.

The site is very tranquil and pleasant and is an ideal location for exploring Normandie and all it has to offer.

Well worth a return visit.

We arrived in March 2013 when weather should have been mild, and woke up to a white snow covered beautiful scenic view of the nearby River Seine and its banks. Wine and small items of food were sold in the reception area, and we had a small kitchen so it was very cozy until the next day when the weather cleared somewhat. We walked to the nearby restaurant for dinner, which was in what looked like an old mansion and walked around the nearby grounds on a hill with spectacular views of the valley below. We had a car to buy groceries in a full service market a short distance away, and traveled around to the nearby small towns for other meals. We drove to to nearby Val de Reuil to take the train into Paris. We drove through the countryside to Caen for our visit to the World War II Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial, but it was closed due to the unusual snowy weather. Even being close to the cemetery and standing on that beach was an awesome sight. The drive from the Resort to the northern coast of France was beautiful. (We traveled March 2013, not available in the date selections below, but had to write about this quaint place.)

Room Tip: All rooms have a view of the River Seine, I believe. Narrow stairs to bedroom in our upstairs unit.

The opportunity arose for us to get away for a while just the two of us. So as we live in France we came back to Connelles, 1st time to Res Normande though. Accommodation is adequate, clean, functional and spacious. Staff friendly and helpful. Resort is well presented, although lacks parking at busy times. Indoor pool and spa are small but adequate. Gardens are well tended. New info panel is very useful, however we use TA for our restaurants, always best to eat out at lunchtime the French way. Loads to do out and about. Will be back!

This visit was our holiday tour to France. The resort is well situated and gives you easy travel options to the region. The receptionist Marc gave us very good tips and places to visit. The closes shops is about 10km away. The rest of the resort options were not used but it is very clean and comfortable. We will recomend the resort to anyone.
