Chic Normandy stay at five-star boutique hotel in the heart of Rouen, minutes from the monumental Place du Vieux-Marché
For a swanky stay in one of France’s most historic cities, there’s no denying that this 15th-century former mansion delivers luxury on a grand scale. But what makes this place even more special is its location; just a few minutes' walk from the monumental Place du Vieux-Marché, where a 19-year-old Joan of Arc died a martyr's death in 1431 (for those who need reminding; she was burned at the stake).
Designed to a high spec, all of Hotel de Bourgtheroulde Autograph Collection’s 78 uniquely-styled guest rooms reveal a tasteful mix of classic and contemporary decor. Expect neutral colour schemes, carpeted or parquet flooring, marble bathrooms with bathtubs or walk-in showers, and comfortable beds dressed with luxe linens. Thoughtful extras include coffee machines, bathrobes and slippers, and well-stocked minibars.
Elsewhere, there’s a couple of excellent restaurants for gourmet cuisine, a lovely bar for all-day coffees and cocktails, and a well-equipped gym. Equally worthy of your attention is the supersized Spa du Drap d'Or for its sauna, hammam, six treatment rooms, and showstopping pool with underwater lighting and coloured LED lights (it’s the largest in the whole of Normandy).
Good to know
For those booking late-November and December, the Rouen Christmas Market is simply magical. Held in the heart of the historic medieval city around Place de la Cathédrale, Rue des Carmes, and Rue Georges Lanfry, highlights include an ice-skating rink on Place de l’Hôtel de Ville, a Ferris Wheel on Place du Vieux-Marché, and 150-plus city-wide cultural events (street performances, concerts, shows, and more). There’s also 80 vendors selling everything from gingerbread, foie gras, artisan cheeses, and mulled wine, to jewellery, leather goods and wooden toys. The market runs from Thursday 23 November to Sunday 31 December 2017.
Staying so close to Rouen Cathedral, the Gros-Horloge, and the Place du Vieux Marché
Splurge-worthy treatments and therapies in the 700-metres-squared Spa du Drap d'Or
Relaxing in luxe guest rooms with tasteful decor, marble bathrooms, and lots of luxuries
